Bread Shuttles. Korean. Not Japanese.


[ppang-syeoteul] Term literally meaning ‘bread shuttle.’ Usually used at school, where one student is picked on and/or bullied to do the errands for people who are in a stronger position than they are.

Person who is made to do things or go get things for someone else; person who runs errands; gofer​ (see also 使いっ走り)
