I think the origin of the word was the bastardization of either a Korean or Japanese word meaning the equivalent of OK and used the same way.

I didn't recognize the word at first. Although I have used the word "copasetic" many times, in the past, I have never seen it in print. It was a common expression used by G.I.s during the Korean War.
