kyun きゅん

In Japanese, kyun きゅん has multiple meanings.

First, kyun きゅん after a character's name is a honorific suffix, a cutesy to say kun くん. It's used by fans, in particular fujoshi, to refer to cute male characters. For example: Aichi-kyun アイチきゅん, from Cardfight!! Vanguard. This usage is similar to the honorific tan たん,

Second, it's a mimetic word for one's chest or heart compressing, used when a character falls in love with another character or finds them extremely cute. See: mune-kyun 胸キュン.
