누워서 떡 먹기
(Eat rice cake while lying down).
A Korean proverb expressing how easy something is.
김치국부터 마시지 말라
(Do not drink your kimchi soup first).
A Korean proverb warning someone not to get ahead of him- or herself in a project or in planning for the future. Kimchi soup is spicy and is usually eaten with rice to help reduce the sting; therefore, this proverb suggests that a person wait for the rice to arrive before drinking the soup because the person might be in a fix if the rice arrives late or not at all.
We welcome everyone to participate in our events: Koreans now living in West Michigan, Korean students, Korean-Americans, Korean adoptees, veterans who served in Korea, Americans with an interest in Korean language and culture, and friends and relatives of Koreans.
낮말은 새가 듣고 밤말은 쥐가 듣는다
(Birds hear the words spoken in the day, and the mice those at night).
A Korean proverb warning someone to be careful about what he or she says since one never knows who may be listening.
