SCENARIO: I was late for school again. While I was thinking of a way to get away with the punishment, my classmate Seri grabbed me to the side and suggested that we climb the wall at the back of the school.

내가 올라가서 너 잡아줄 테니까 빨리 엎드려봐.
I’m going to climb up first and help pull you up after, so get on your knees.

*I did as she said.

야! 고개 들지마! 
Hey, don’t look up.

*고개 들다 means to raise the head or look upward

내가? 너무 무겁잖아.
You think I would do that? You are so heavy.

*She made it to the top and offered her hand to pull me up.

잡아줄 테니까 올라와! 
Come. I’ll help you up.

*The wall was not too high for me to climb so I jumped to the other side by myself. She was flustered. She seemed pissed that I ignored her so she turned down my help to get down the wall. I didn’t insist. I knew she couldn’t get down on her own. After ten seconds, she called me back. Our bodies touched and she was embarrassed. She walked off without even saying thank you so…


정세리! 지퍼 열렸다.
Seri! Your zipper is open.

뭐야! 아닌데.
What? It’s not.

가방 지퍼 말이야!
I am talking about your bag.
