Not Chinese Apr 21, 2006



No, 恋痛い isn't Chinese. It is Japanese.

There are two Chinese charaters and one Japanese letter, which belongs to the alphabet. The first character indicates that it matters a diluvial love, a rush or a crash, not a bit of love in the Christian sense. The second character signifies pain and the last letter is an adjective ending. I am wondering how anyone could have mistaken the combination for "one love." No way!
