Today’s Korean proverb: “The bowl leaks inside the house also leaks outside the house"
집에서 새는 바가지 밖에서도 샌다
.
.
.
I heard of this saying for the first time from my mom. My mom told me off for being naughty, which I don’t remember what exactly it was😜, so I told her confidently “Don’t worry, I only do this at home. I behave well front of others”. Then when my mom said this old saying. I asked her what does it mean, then she explained that it means my bad habits will eventually ‘leak’ front of people, so it’s important to act(talking/thinking/behaving) right even when no one is watching me.
.
.
.
.
Similar english saying would be … I couldn’t found. Maybe something similar is “What’s learned in the cradle is carried to the grave”, but korean one is more about “being secretive will not work”. (Scary!😱)

🐾Some korean old saying is so cute and insightful, so I decided to illustrate them.🐾

Today’s Mysterious Korean proverb: “You will know 10-gil* under the water, but you won’t know 1-gil under the person"
열길 물속은 알아도 한길 사람속은 모른다
.
.
.
I love this old saying that how it’s describing our mind as something measurable. Gil* is an old measurement in Korea, it’s about a height of a man(about 6ft). 10-gil is about 20 yards. It’s typically hard to know what’s under the water (even when it’s 20 yards down), and minds are even harder to read. This saying helps me not to determine what other people might be thinking.

Similar english saying would be “Man and melons are hard to know”.
