    • Hi Weijin 🙂 It’s usually only used about people – when you are giving up on someone or want to stop trying to persuade someone 🙂

    안녕하세요 선생님 선현우 ~
    I’m not sure if this is a good way to contact you – but I could not figure out another way. On the May 24, 2013 edition of K-Talk with Hyunwoo on Catch the Wave, you aired my audio (우리 교실 – a poem). 대단히 감사합니다 for doing that! Just wondering — I haven’t heard anything since then. Does it take a while to receive the TTMIK text book or whatever the “prize” is? Or – should I contact CtW instead?
    Also one other question please – you usually upload the videos of K-Talk, but it does not appear that you uploaded May 24 edition. Is that correct? Is there a plan to upload it?
    Thank you again ~ really appreciate all of you at TTMIK! Hope you hear from you ….
