Hello andrew-thank you for responding. Do you know any other Taiwanese Hokkien slangs?

I think "siao lian" just means "young" and I don't think it is necessarily referring to a punk.

奧仁 or "ao ren" is a Taiwanese slang for bad person.

Hello. The guy I spoke to said that the term he was talking about sounded like "xiao lian" in Taiwanese Hokkien, and it meant "young punk".

Hello ong-thank you for responding.

Sorry about that comment I made in my last post.

I should have been more specific-do these terms you posted mean "bad person", or "illegitimate child/offspring"?
