TTMIK Quiz: Korean Emoticons ㅋㅋㅋ

So, you know how =) means happy...what doesㅎㅎ mean?  You can take the Talk To Me In Korean's Quiz on Korean Emoticons to find out!! 

I scored very low.  So I copied and pasted the answers for you.  Call it a cheat sheet.

ㅎㅎ comes from 하하 (haha) and it represents laughter.
ㅇㅋ comes from 오키 (oh-kee), which is a short form for 오케이 (Okay).
ㅋㅋㅋ comes from 크크크, (kekeke)which represents the giggling sound, so it has the same meaning as ㅎㅎㅎ
^^ represents a smiling face, 
 ㅍㅎㅎ is 푸하하 and has the same meaning as ㅎㅎ or ㅎㅎㅎ. 

ㅉㅉ comes from 쯧쯧, which shows disappointment or sympathy (as in Tsk Tsk)
ㅜ.ㅜ represents a crying face, with tears flowing down the cheeks from two closed eyes.
ㅠ_ㅠ is a sad face with tears dropping.
ㅡ.ㅔ represents a face of someone who is not excited and has long hair covering half of their face.
 -_- is also a sad look, 
;;; represents sweat or embarrassment.

ㅇㅇ comes from 응 (eung)which indicates yes
^^a, the letter "a" represents a hand and a finger scracthing one's head.
ㄷㄷㄷ comes from the word 덜덜덜 (duhl, duhl, duhl), which describes a way in which someone shivers or trembles from shock or amazement. (equivalent to OMG).
