"Dirty Laundry"?


Recommended Posts


I was wondering if anyone knows a Chinese expression/idiom equivalent to the English "dirty laundry"? (Not in the literal sense; metaphorically speaking, I mean.)

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I think they are referring to a secret that isn't socially acceptable. A teacher dating one of his students, for example.

Thank you for the explanation! :D

Hm, then I guess it's kind of like "丑闻" in Chinese.
