Matchy-matchy

What does matchy-matchy mean?

Wearing matching couples outfits

In South Korea, couples who wear coordinated or matching outfits are said to be matchy-matchy. Getting matchy-matchy with your SO is the norm in South Korea, where dedicated couples show their love for each other in a variety of cheesy yet delightful ways.

In addition to wearing matching outfits, South Korean couples also celebrate their 100 day anniversaries, celebrate both Valentine's Day and White Day, use couples-only messaging apps, and even own matching phones and jewelry. However, there's no quicker way to tell that a pair of South Koreans are a couple than by observing that they're wearing matchy-matchy outfits.
