What Does KY Mean?

It is pronounced “kei-wai”.

It’s a Japanese slang word that was coined by high-school girls in 2008. It is an acronym of “Kuuki-Yomenai” in Japanese.

空気読めない(kuuki yomenai) means someone who can’t read the atmosphere of a situation. so in English, Take a hint.

The “KY person” would have a hard time living in Japan, because the Japanese generally don’t express themselves very well. We are under the impression that others might understand us without mentioning the details most of the time.
