us express

다 V-고요

다 V-고요 is an easy little grammar point used to express surprise over an unusual occurrence.

I have a friend who is chronically late to every meet up we have.  If, one day, she manages to arrive at the meeting spot early, I could say to her, “일찍 다 오고요!”  Note that the verb is never conjugated in past tense with this grammar.

This grammar is often used with expressions of surprise such as 웬일이에요?, 무슨 일이 있어요?, and 왜 그래요?


웬일이에요? 밥을 다 사고요.  (Implication being that they never cover a meal.)

무슨 일이 있어요? 지각을 다 하고요.  (Implication being that they are never late.)

왜 그래? 갑자기 공부를 다 하고.  (Implication being that they never study.)

The following further examples are from 건대 한국어 3:

웬일이야? 네가 나한테 전화를 다 하고.

오늘 좋은 일 있나 봐요? 화장을 다 하고요.

*웬일이세요? 이렇게 일찍 출근을 하고요.  

*무슨 일 있니? 먼저 만나자고 하고.

*다 can be omitted without any change in meaning.


Totally in love with my Onyx and Lapis Lazuli pieces.

Onyx is a grounding stone that calms your fears and allows a you to see past fear and relieve your stress.

Lapis Lazuli is a stone of wisdom, intellect and communication, it aids learning and growth of knowledge. It can also help us express ourselves and is really good for introverted people like me 🦋🔮🌿


Origin: It’s an expression used in many Arabic dialects nowadays. This is the pronunciation of the Palestinian and Jordanian version but it’s also common in many other regions and dialects which some variations.

Explanation: It’s used when someone (the red speaker) asks another person (blue speaker) for a favor so that person replies by saying “mnoyooni” which means “from my eyes” implying that they’ll give that person the service from their very eyes as a way of showing how dear that person is to them. The person (red) replies by saying “teslam ’oyoonak” which means “may your eyes be safe/healthy.

Note: the pronoun ك changes depending on the gender of the person who is being addressed.

Scenario for angry birb Teba receiving his first kiss on the check from his crush and they are both just an excited blushing mess ? >w<

 Angry Teba pacified by his crush 

When people use the expression ‘rolled out from the wrong side of the bed’ definitely held true for Teba. He woke in the morning and just knew the day was going to be crap, and whether it was just the law of attraction providing this dread filled day, or it was just life happening; Teba was not in a good mood.  His neighbors watched him silently as he made his way through the village, and their whispers were not lost among him. It only caused his irritation to sky rocket and mumble under his breath about ‘gossipers’.

 Even the day was perfect, the winds blowing just right and the warmth of the sun would make anyone in a good mood, but Teba disdained it all. He knew he was blowing everything out of proportion, but even if he told himself to calm down, he could not. Every flutter of his clothing, the creaks of the aged wooden pathways grated against his nerves and left a sour taste on the back of his tongue.

 His fellow warriors cowered in fear as Teba stalked by, the feathers on his neck ruffled and his eyes sharp as a blade. He had few patience with them all especially how their performance was being executed, and so when training commence the warriors were dragging themselves home afterwards while Teba stayed behind. He was overlooking the sunset with a cool breeze caressing his feathers.

 He knew he should feel content as the sunset usually pacifies him, but it was one of those days where everything nerve was heightened. As the sunset was peaking over the horizon he gave it a glare feeling resentment for it not providing him with peace.

 “You could pierce the sun in half with how sharp your glare is.”  

 Teba perked up hearing a familiar voice and internally groaned. Of all the days for you to come join him was on the day where he was the most pissy, but he didn’t want to shun you in fear of pushing you away from him. He sat up straight and looked over his shoulder with the best attempt of a calm facade.

 You weren’t a fool, though.

 You quirked a smile and took the spot next to him on the grassy hill. You inhaled the fresh air before flushing your back against the ground. The medium length grass felt wonderful against your form, providing just the right amount of cushion where it was not too uncomfortable to relax on. Teba gave you a side glance before returning to his staring contest with the sun.

 “You should probably go.” He curtly said, feeling a strange combination of heavy and light whenever he was around you. Although he felt his stomach weighed him down as the words left his beak, he instantly regretted it as that wasn’t what he wanted to say. He softly clicked his tongue becoming more frustrated at himself then your presence.

 “Am I bothering you?” Your voice soft as you turned your eyes to stare at the back of his head.

You could see him bristle and he took a good moment before he could respond.

 “Yes- I mean- no. That’s… I-” He sighed heavily, letting his head hang and placing on wing over his head. “Just a bad day.” He simply replied in hopes that would be enough to suffice the tension he felt. Teba was mentally kicking himself for speaking without thinking and he felt like flying home and going to bed early to start anew.

 “That’s what I heard.” You chimed before sitting up and letting your elbows rest on your bent knees.

 “You what?” He slowly questioned, turning his head ever so slightly.

 You blew a piece of grass off your shoulders before you hummed, “Mmm. Yeah, everyone is talking about Teba the Tyrant today.”

 He could feel his body cringe at the horrendous nickname and grimace even further. You only chuckled and shoved your shoulder into his. He gave you a side glance and had to suppress the smile on his beak. Teba felt a jolt of electricity from your touch and it lingered with him for moment before he felt a sense of longing for more.

 He turned his head away feeling shy and stayed silent. You furrowed your brows in concern and sighed before moving. He could hear you shift and he sighed, feeling dejected although he was at fault for your leaving. However he didn’t anticipate your arms wrapping around him from behind and he stiffened at the unexpected contact.  

 “Well…I don’t know if I can make it better, but how about a hug from your favorite person?” You voiced wafted through his head like chimes. He could feel his heart speed up and used every willpower for his feathers not to fluff.

 “Do you go around and self claim you’re everyone’s favorite person?” He jested, feeling his irritation melt away little by little.

 You laughed, “Yep!” And without thinking pecked his feathery cheek.

 As if time froze itself for moment, your eyes widen at your own actions and Teba’s feathers fluffed up without warning. It caused you to rear back and felt your face catch on fire. Teba could not bare to look at you knowing full well he looked like he had been caught in a electrical storm. He folded his wings in front of his stomach and closed his eyes as his body filled with waves of pleasure.

 You weren’t sure what to do and stared at your lap nervously. You were screaming at yourself and your heart hammered against your rib cage. It was…impulse, honestly. You hadn’t thought of it, it just…sort of happened.  “I-I am so sorry.”

 He remained silent for a good moment and it left you feeling horrible. You invaded his personal space, he wasn’t in a good mood in the first place-

 “Don’t be.”

 You didn’t expect that response and gazed at him. His back still faced you, but he slowly turned his head. His eyes shimmered with emotions you couldn’t quite comprehend and looked sheepish as he tried to calm his nervous before he spoke again. “It…” He wasn’t sure if he should say it, but he thought to himself ‘screw it’ and confidently spoke, “It was nice.”

 The bashful look on your face dissipated every ill feelings he felt throughout the day and couldn’t suppress his smile. 

You know, I keep seeing posts talking about what a horrible liar Kara is. But the fact of the matter is Kara is probably one of the best liars I’ve ever seen on TV.

But wait. The entirety of National City knows Kara’s Supergirl, you may be thinking. How can she be a good liar? But that’s the thing—her secret isn’t that Kara Danvers is Supergirl.

Kara’s only been Supergirl for the past year or so. But still, she’s been lying for well over a decade about who she is—and successfully. The thing about Clark—and they’ve addressed this in season 1—is he may as well be human. They’ve talked about this with Astra, and then they’ve shown this Myriad. Because in Clark’s head, he’s not Kryptonian. His powers make him stand apart, but when he solar flares, his most likely thought process is I’m human now. To Kara, it would be I’m now powerless. And there is a difference. Krypton is much more technologically advanced, yes, but that is not the only difference between Earth and Krypton.

I cannot emphasize enough Kara is not human. Kara’s alienness isn’t contingent upon her abilities—superpowers or no superpowers, she’s always Kryptonian.

And sure, plenty of people probably have figured out that Kara is Supergirl—but that’s pretty much it. What people know about Kara’s past is that she’s Superman’s cousin, and that’s it. And clearly, Kara is younger than Superman—most people aren’t going to think “yup. She was probably put in suspended animation in some way.” I mean the conspiracy theorists might, but not really the overwhelming people on Earth. (listen. You gotta draw a line somewhere)

Most people are going to think ‘Occam’s Razor’—that Kara’s mom, or dad, or both, got off Krypton at the same time as Superman, and a decade later had Kara, and that there’s a very good chance that Supergirl is half human, or at the very least born on Earth and raised as a human. It’s what’s logical, isn’t it? The simplest answer is usually the correct one.

But she’s not. English isn’t her first language, and she grew up with a very different culture, undergone a host of different experiences that most humans couldn’t even imagine. Hell, she wasn’t even born the same way—Clark was the first natural Kryptonian birth in years. That means Kara was not. Kara was born via the Codex—really, if James was surprised at the depths of Kara’s anger over losing Krypton (back in season 1—you know, where Kara got to have more than 3 emotions), or how surprised he was to find out what Kara’s family crest really meant, how surprised would they be at everything she’d decide to just stop hiding?

Because Kara is so very good at hiding. Kara Danvers is real, yeah, but it’s someone she had to build. One of the very subtle, but telling moments happened in the first episode of season two, when Kara and Clark were getting off the elevator, and Clark had a clumsy moment where he ran into someone and knocked all their things to the ground. After he apologized and helped the person pick up their things, Kara asked him “wow, you really have the whole clumsy thing down, don’t you?” “Oh no, that was real.” Key word here is thing. As in, I have a routine I go through to distract people and to seem harmless. And this is just the tip of the iceberg, of routines and acts Kara must go through to make herself seem human. Kara Danvers is real, but part of that identity is a persona she constantly embodies–clumsy, absentminded, horrible at math and science, cute but not drop dead gorgeous, a bit quirky always happy, harmless, invisible, human.

And so it’s not surprising that all of these people are figuring out her identity, but that’s not really what Kara’s held close to her chest, not like Clark. Kara’s anger and loss and just general alienness–that is her secret. This is what she’d confide, this is what she’d have to truly trust someone to reveal. This is what the culmination of trust would look like, trust in Cat or Lena or Maggie (or hell even Barry, who sure knows Kara is an alien but. He doesn’t really seem to grasp the implications of that–oh i didn’t realize Kara got mad).

For 10 years, Kara kept herself hidden, keep herself secret. But Kara’s secret isn’t that she’s Supergirl, a human with powers. Kara’s secret is that she is angry and mad and hurting. But most of all, Kara’s secret is that she is not human.

i can’t decide between quoting lucky i’m in love with my best friend and lucky we’re in love in every way from this song that resonates with this picture, and my feelings, perfectly

Today is special.


Because today is the 4th anniversary of a group of boys who started from the bottom and climb, and are still climbing as high as they can.

These boys are Bangtan Boys also known as BTS.

For me BTS is one of the most special groups to exist.

Because not many groups are willing to tell their stories.

BTS does not have to rely on buying song after song after song. After all, they have the freedom to produce, experiment, write and create the art they want to create. It is amazing to see a group of people who write in an industry where many companies opt out of letting their idols write and create and instead choose to mostly buy songs, giving their artists minimal freedom in many cases. BTS, however, does have that freedom and uses it to their full advantage.

Look at the solo songs or any of their solo work as an example.

Rap monster tackles society, Illness, pressures and so much more in his songs. He shows worry for the new generations and generations to come faced with injustice, anxiety and depression. He worries about his members and shows understanding and compassion. In fact, he uses lyrics as an expression of his inner struggle and philosophical thoughts and in turn opens conversations that are very much needed in society. He works hard to communicate with all the fans and in general, he works hard to communicate with people. He does not just show interest in his fans but in society as a whole.

Suga too wanted his voice to be heard. He said it himself, he was not content with just rapping. He wanted people to listen to what he has to say too. And definitely, Yoongi has a lot to say. At first, he seemed like such a closed person, but his mixtape gave everyone such an amazing insight into his mind. From the depression, to self hate, to allusions to suicide and social anxiety he bears his soul to all, in turn trying to help others realise that they are not the only ones going through a hard time. And if he continues to recover(because I believe that even if one gets better, some demons still remain and always have to be fought)  then hopefully so can we. And also, how can one not love a man who reveals a song called ‘first love’ only to reveal that his first love was his piano, when that is such a beautiful and sincere confession.

J-Hope’s mixtape is one I definitely cannot wait to hear. Because I feel like he is a member who also has a lot he wants to say without any constraints. Hoseok ’s song ‘mama’ just showed how amazing he is as a person. He had a solo song in the Wings album, like all the members and he chose t write a loving and sincere song thanking his mum for all that she has ever done for him. For how she loves and supports him in this difficult path. He seems to struggle with feeling like he is not good enough. As a member or son. I hope that’s not true. He also shows his emotion through his dance.

Not these three members show us the most of what they are feeling through writing and producing. However, the other 4 are also working hard on developing as writers, amazing sure to develop and also express themselves.

Taehyung showed his inner turmoils and  guilt over an unknown action or feeling in stigma as he apologise see to his brother and sister and even worked with Namjoon to produce a new song, showing a different side of him, as well as a different singing technique deciding to tell different stories with his voice and songs. Taehyung is also proving himself to be a very good actor, telling more than than just his story.

Jungkook, in my opinion, seems to struggle most with expressing himself. And I believe that that is normal. After all from a young age he has been a trainee with means that most things kids get to experience such as relationships, getting in trouble, love, sex and more this teen was not allowed to have. He was too busy being 'manufactured p’, as some may say, to be the perfect idol. However, since he grew up in the public eye for quite a long time we see how his story is his progress as he tries to gain confidence and express himself asking Namjoon for help with his songs 'Begin’ as well as by releasing amazing covers.

Originally posted by jeonity

Jimin, like Hoseok shows his emotions through dance but also has shown us how he can communicate through his vocal colour and his emotional expression. He worked on 'LIE’ showed confusion, loss and heartbreak as he is 'caught in a lie’ and while we do not know the reason for these emotions we can appreciate them better and can relate them to us and our situations.

Originally posted by jikookfantasy

Lastly, Jin is the member, who I believed was the least able to express himself, not because he doesn’t want to but because he doesn’t have the opportunity to showcase his stories as much. However, his solo song 'Awake’ is a true gift. It tells the story of a boy, not a man but a boy, who comes to the heartbreaking belief that yes, he may never be able to reach the top like others but he will continue to work just as hard and give his all to be better and better and better. It shows his loyalty and passion and that is what I love about Jin. But I would really love to see Jin tell other, different stories through acting.
