Don’t want to see it? Turn around.

Many foreigners think Chinese people are very shy. However, some Chinese people tend to be pretty straightforward and would immediately show a dislike for something if they don’t like it. In fact, there is a phrase that Chinese people often use in spoken language to describe something as an eyesore.

辣眼睛 (là yǎn jīng) = an eyesore in Chinese

 (là): spicy,
眼睛 (yǎn jīng): eye

We use this phrase to describe something which is unpleasant to see, something you wish you could avoid. It’s often used in a joking tone.
