What does NK stand for?

No kidding

NK is a common slang abbreviation used in text messages or online chats. It means “no kidding”, and it’s typically used to express surprise or to confirm something that might seem unbelievable at first.

For instance, if you tell your buddy about catching his ex-girlfriend flirting with his best friend, you might add “NK” at the end. It’s like saying, “I’m not joking about this.” Similarly, if someone shares a news about an amazing offer on a new video game, your reply might include “NK?” to ask, “Are you serious?”

NK is pretty much in the same boat as other slang terms like NJ and NS (no s***), which are also used to express disbelief or surprise. It’s also akin to the slang phrase no cap, which essentially means “I’m not lying”, and the abbreviation srsly for “seriously”.
