The September 18 airing of 'Hello Friends' showed the efforts of young K-Pop idols trying to close the generation gap between them and older "uncles." 

One of these so-called uncle panelists, Kim Young Chul, was explaining the term "top-notch" and how it is occasionally used as a term to express that someone did a good job. When Kim Young Chul turned to IOI's Jeon So Mi, who is fluent in English to ask her whether this is correct, So Mi replied, "It is."

The idol went on, "But it's not an expression that is used often. 'You did so well' or 'You are so good' is more common." 

Kim Young Chul joked, "I use advanced English that foreigners don't use a lot. It's because So Mi is still in her teens that she uses those expressions instead." So Mi joked back, "Kim Young Chul is like an American oldster.

    considering that she lives in korea, is of canadian descent (come on - it's canada) ---she really isnt the best person to tell him what is used nowadays in English considering that english is spoken in north america, europa and australia as main languages in countries there

    Ironic because the term is of American English origin from the early 19th century. It was later adopted into British English.

    I don't think she actually said that the term was outdated... but it's definitely not something I hear very often. I even said it to my friends one time and they gave me a 'wtf' look, like why am I talking like that? LOL I think I can say that for most of Gen Y, it definitely is not a common expression to use.
