    Hi guys, you’re doing a great job 🙂 ! I love this segment.
    Small remark : in this blog post, before the first video in which you were talking about “번지수를 잘못 찾다” you’ve written an expression that you’ve explained previously : “병 주고 약 주다” .
    우리 좋은 선생님들 화이팅하세요 ^^ !!

    On the phrase, “말을 돌리다 “, I think an interesting although somewhat outdated Americanism is “spin” as in “spin doctor”. It’s not really the same, since to “spin” something means to put the most advantageous meaning on something. What do you guys think? Is there a Korean phrase like that?

    • Hi Dan,
      Oh, I didn’t know that the word “spin” has that meaning! Well, we use an expression “죽인다” which literally means “it is killing me” when we saw something really cool.
