너가 슬플 때, 난 행복하고 싶다
너가 아플 때, 난 기쁘고 싶다
너가 괴로울 때, 난 평안하고 싶다
그 슬픔을 내가 짊어지고 내 행복을 너에게 줄 수 있으니까
그 아픔을 내가 짊어지고 내 기쁨을 너에게 줄 수 있으니까
그 괴로움을 내가 짊어지고 내 평안을 너에게 줄 수 있으니까

Literal meaning: A prawn died in a whale’s fight.
What it is really trying to say: 힘센 사람들의 갈등이나 싸움 때문에 힘없는 사람이 억울하게 피해를 입을 때 쓰는 말이에요. An innocent bystander gets hurt in a fight.

When I first arrived in Korea, I found their toilets very fascinating. The black walkie thingy in the picture is for you to call for assistance – when the toilet paper runs out, when the toilet bowl’s pipe is blocked and/or any other toilet business help one may require. The white one (which I pressed out of curiousity) produces sounds of running water. To which I asked a Korean friend what it was for and she told me that some people may be embarrassed to let other people hear their toilet business, so this is to mask that. But I think it brings more attention to yourself if you press it!

이 블로그를 통해 한국어를 매일 매일 쓰면 쓸수록 실력이 많이 좋아졌어요. 어떻게 알냐고 물어보고 싶으면 저는 요즘은 한국어능력시험을 마련하고 있을 때 더 바르게 자연스럽게 정확하게 대답할 수 있기 때문이에요. 물론 이 좋은 소식이 다 선생님 덕분이지만 저도 많이 노력했거든요. 앞으로도 더 잘 할 수 있기 위해 열심히 할께요. 화이팅!
Okay, actually today is my 219th post. Have been busy lately and the 200th post anniversary slipped my mind! But I will continously work harder for many more anniversaries to come. Just hope I won’t run out of things to write about. Haha. Cheers~!! ^^
