jook

Gook is pronounced as jook, but as it is spelled out---gook. That means like a slang term for someone who is of Caucasian descent.

actually in my country gook is a very racist name for Asian people :D Comment by: Kyo   
^^ Yes "Gook" is a racist term for Asians believed to have developed after the Korean war, when Koreans were saying "America/an/ans" (미국) it sounded as if they were calling themselves 'Gooks' Comment by: Thor   
국 means country, 미국-American 한국- Korean....Gook did come from the Korean War when Korean civilains would come up to American Soldiers and say Mi Gook (American).....ignorant Americans thought they were saying " Me Gook" Comment by: 김 s.g.
