He Looks Young for his Age.
Sook : Who is that man standing over there?
kyu : Oh, he is Mr. Carter, our new manager.
Sook : He is quite good-looking. Do you know how old he is?
Kyu : I'm not sure. Probably in his early 30's.
Sook : Really? He looks really young for his age.
kyu : I think so, too. You know, every girl in our company is crazy about him.
Sook : I can imagine.
kyu : But it's not just because of his good looks.
He is a really nice person, considerate and understanding.
Sook : You are lucky to have a manager like him.
Kyu : I think so.
Kyu : You don't seem to be eating at all. Aren't you hungry?
Sook : Well, I'm on a diet.
Kyu : But why? You are not fat at all.
Sook : Thank you for saying so, but I really have to lose some weight.
You know, the summer is just around the corner and I want to get into shape before the summer comes.
Kyu : Do you exercise regularly?
Sook : I used to go swimming two or three times a week, but not any more.
I don't have time for it. How about you?
Kyu : I go jogging every day and play basketball on weekends.
Sook : Wow. I'm impressed. Now I can see why you are so fit.
Kyu : If you really want to get into shape, you'd better do regular exercise instead of going on a diet.
Sook : Thank you for the advice. I'll keep that in mind.
