Learn Korean with KoreanClass101.com! You broke your roommate's prized beer mug, so when he comes home, you tell him in Korean, "I'm so sorry, but I broke your mug." He looks at you and asks in Korean, "Did you do it on purpose?" You reply, "No, of course not." He asks in Korean, "Then why are you smiling while you're apologizing? Is there some kind of joke?" You tell your roommate in Korean, "No, I'm not joking. I'm really serious. I'm sorry." He tells you in Korean, "Well, I still don't understand why you're so happy about it. That mug meant a lot to me! Maybe I should find something valuable of yours to break!"
