1 In Korean learning journey (:

열 번 찍어 안 넘어 가는 나무 없다

Been studying some of Korea’s most popular adages and metaphors and I particularly like this one.

열 번 찍어 안 넘어 가는 나무 없다

(There is no tree that won’t fall if you chop it 10 times –> Keep trying until you succeed)

What’s life if there is no ups and downs? (: The most important point is to keep trying.

나무 꼭 넘어요. 걱정하지 마! ^^

    Nice proverb, but your point is even better. I second it as I’ve been there too. 😀
