The Meaning of "Don't ever give up!" [Korean Fridays]

You should never give up because you have the power to make your dreams come true.

In this week's lesson, we're going to learn Korean from the K-drama Who Are You?

Never Giving Up Leads You to Happiness!

Decades of research have demonstrated that spacing out study sessions over a longer period improves long-term memory but one of the most common reasons students find it challenging to study is a lack of concentration. It is essential to not give up to stay focused and not let your thoughts wander while studying!

Scene 1:

나 과외 그만하면 안 돼?

Can't I quit that study group?

며쳘이다 됐다고 그런 얘기를 해?

How many times did you say that?

하기 싫어

I don't want to do it.

나랑 수준 안 맞고

I'm not even at their level

너는 진짜 그게 문제야, 어?

That's your problem

약 해 빠져가지고

You're so weak

독하게 노력해서 수준을 맞춰야지

You need to work hard until you reach their level

해보지도 않고 너가떨어질 거야?

You plan to fail without even trying

Some vocabulary from those sentences

과외: private lesson

수준: level

Han Yi An with Ko Eun Byul

Han Yi An promised Ko Eun Byul when they were little to give her his medal when he won it!

I promise ( 약속 해요 )

He kept his promise to her although a lot of years passed and they grow up, and Ko EunByul's personality changed a lot.. so he was reluctant to give it to her, but the new Ko Eun Byul ( Ko Eun Byul's twin sister ) was too kind to him that's why he decided to not give up on his relationship with her and to give her the medal as he promised.

It's so cool to have a friend who keep his promise even though he was little and the years passed!

Come out for a second.

We can all agree that it's not easy to make new friends when you're a new high school student who is just transferred. There are many ways you can use it to make friends! Don't give up if you hadn't any friends on your first day!

Scene 3:

나도 여기 앉아도 돼 ?

Can I sit here, too?

어, 그럼 앉아.

Sure. sit.
