A lot of people that I met have been calling me like this and I want to know the difference between them.

(I mean, I actually do look quite cute.)

귀엽다 is a general term of 'cute'.

깜찍하다 implies being petite, peppy and bubbly, and having lots of 애교.


I think the main difference is that 깜찍하다 has a feeling of small or even tiny and cute. 귀엽다 is a commoner and broader term for cute, but 깜찍하다 really emphasizes the small size.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
