    What a great idea! I love it. One of the biggest faults of language courses is the fact that they don’t teach you the colloquial language. Of course you should learn the standard language properly, but why not both. right?

    Btw, Hyun Woo goofing around on that horse in the background made me laugh. It’s a good way to start a day (it’s 여덟 시 사십오 분 here :D)!

    Excellent idea. My Korean is ok, but this sort of mistake is one of my biggest problems. I’ll take a pattern from one situation and plug it into a similar spot, then find out, no, I can’t say it like that. Although sometimes it’s fun to do silly things like literally translate American idioms into Korean, like “땀 없다”. Heheheh.

    Everywhere else that I’ve seen the word 그리워 as a verb, it’s been written as 그리워해요, not 그리워요. Could you explain, please?
