Hey Colin,



Oh now I get it!haha


사곤합니다 is the shortened version of 사고는 합니다 which is one of ways to mean the frequent behavior.


-하고는 합니다 can also be used in terms of 'buying' or even 'going to the gym' as in 가끔씩 운동을 가곤합니다.


Does that make sense to you?:)




Thank you

Hi Colin,


We are genuinely sorry about the typo on the script..! We apologize and thank you for telling us on such issue. We've fixed "E-Mart" on the PDF.

We will definitely take that seriously so we won't make any more mistakes.


I am not sure if I am catching you on 사곤합니다.. Did you see this on script as well?


Maybe you have meant 피곤합니다? ,as in I am tired?


Thank you

The script says E-Mark, when it should be E-Mart (이마트).


I believe Gina was given a copy of the same script, because she pronounces "E-Mart" as "E-Mark" in the audio. This time, I don't think it was her speaking Korean with an English accent, I think it was seriously a typo.


Eeps. 어쩔수없었죠?
