    Please I’ve got a question on Choi’s picture.The context in Handepon aubsau jyausauyo doesn’t mean My hand phone disappeared? I feel it’s kind of irrelevant to this lesson. Please explain. Thank you.

    요리 실력이 좋아지면 저녁 손님 많아져요. 하지만 맛은 달라지면 손님 없어져요.
    If your cooking skill improves, your dinner guests will increase; however, if the flavor changes, the guests will disappear.

  • Nicole

    I’m curious if this sentence is correct or is there a better way to say it? Or am I just completely wrong? lol
    내가 달라져 봐 봤자 달라지지 못 해요.
    I cant change even if I try.
