[Vocabulary] 행보

행보 (haeng-bo) – move (noun)

This word might seem very simple but it’s quite interesting.

According to the Naver dictionary, when used with “life” 인생 행보, it means “one’s walk of life”.

While the translation seems weird, think of 행보 to have strategic elements in it. You can look at it as “life’s moves”, which kind of means the journey of your life.

But we want to focus on 행보 itself in the examples. Look at 행보 as a word usually used in conjunction with professional work or decisions.
