  1. I just wanted to share what I know. The “ting” ending in so-gae-ting (소개팅) stems from the English word “meeting.” Although the type of meetings tend to gravitate toward the romantic side (something I noticed only after Dan mentioned it), as you can see they all involve meetings.

    So, all these expressions such as so-gae-ting should be understood as a shortened from of so-gae-meeting. Then it will make perfect sense.
