What does Haraguroi(腹黒い) mean in Japanese?
Meaning: A wicked guy, A black-hearted guy

Romaji: Haraguroi

The word Haraguroi is a commonly used expression when talking about romantic relationships. A wicked guy is called Haraguroi Hito (腹黒い人), and a wicked woman is called Haraguroi Onna (腹黒い女).

“That woman is wicked, so be careful!”
