누렁이 is a racist slur for a yellow skinned person? My Korean is not good enough to know, and I can't find this word in a dictionary. 누렁니 means yellow teeth. 누렁 is yellow, but said in a bad/derogatory way? (누렁 can be used when calling a dog yellow.)

Google Translate gives 누렁이 as "rover," i.e. as in (I'm guessing) a nickname/colloquial term for a dog? Still not sure what or who the OP was referring to exactly.
