    so the way to say 벼락치기 is to use it as a hada verb ( 벼락치기하다), right?

  • 사자

    Can you make a short (or even very short) dialogue using 벼락치기 하다? I’m still not sure how to use it naturally. Thanks.

    • This word is pretty useless though. But I made this silly dialog anyway…
      이번은 벼락치기 해서 시험에 떨어졌네요
      그러네요. 저는 벼락치기 자주 하는 게 괜찮은데요
      그러면 좋겠어요. 저도 그런 천재라면 시간을 아끼는 게 항상 벼락치기 했을 거예요.
      Here’s a recording for fun https://soundcloud.com/gregsm/wgawte5twt8y

      This is literally:
      -This time, because I studied at the last moment, I fell at the exam
      -Really? Me, that often prepare at the last moment is fine though.
      -I guess it’s good for you like that. If I also was a genius like that, me that value time, would always prepare for exams at the last moment.
      (Nice. If I was genius like you, I would always do it to save time)
