[JYJ3 note: The word ‘곰신/Gomsin’ refers to girls who are waiting for their conscripted boyfriends. It is taken from a story called “Putting on Gomusin(고무신=rubber shoes) Backward” where a wife cheats on her husband who’s been away in the army during the Korean War, which generated the same-name slang term ‘wearing rubber shoes backwards’.]
