Word of the day: 반인반수

반인반수 ~ half man half beast

The word is composed of the following hanja:
반 (半) ~ half
인 (人) ~ man/ human/ person
수 (獸) ~ beast/ animal

Those of you who watch “Gu Family Book” will know that Lee Seung Gi’s character is half human and half gumiho. He can therefore be described as a 반인반수.
