Thanks for commenting !


Yes 火爆, the meaning you are pointing out is usually present in the expression 脾氣火爆, isn't it ?


Oh ! Yes, I like pictographs, because it helps you to remember and discover original meanings, In French (or English btw) you have to be an erudite in Greek and Latin if you want to retrieve original meanings (and moreover, it's still mixed up with other influences)
