How Koreans Talk – A Collection of Expressions

From the back cover:

If something tastes good, say: “It kills me.”

If you’re happy, you “go to Hong Kong.”

If a friend wins the lottery, ask: “did you have a pig dream last night?”

If someone tells a joke, you might “laugh until your belly button pops out.”

Koreans talk with humour and punch, and this is a book about it.

LKL says:

A fun book to have by the bedside to in the smallest room in the house. Great for browsing, a couple of expressions at a time.
