Korean term (인연) similar to the concept of fate or kismet used to describe how people are destined to cross paths in a meaningful way. The concept is a common idea in Eastern philosophy and not exclusively a Korean concept.

When someone walks into your life, be it a stranger who brushes against you in crowd or a future romantic partner, it may seem like a small thing at first. But according to inyeon, every encounter with someone holds weight and is considered a culmination of events that have taken place over thousands of years and multiple lifetimes.
We’ve definitely shared so many past lives. When we first met, it felt like I knew him for a long time. Every time I’m with him, I feel like I’m progressing down a path that is familiar and meant to be. Even if we don’t work out, I know that I’ll walk away with a better understanding of myself and the world around me. It’s inyeon.
