  Sook : It's very nice of you to say so.
  Kyu   : I mean it. You look like an angel.
  Sook : Thank you. I'm very flattered.  〔듣기 좋은 칭찬을 하다, 추켜세우다〕 
            Kyu, I really want to talk with you more, but I think I must go now.  
            I have a couple of things to do before the wedding.

  Kyu   : What's the matter with you, Sook?  You look upset.
  Sook : I just found out the result of the midterm[중간고사] and it was awful. [지독한(very bad)]
  Kyu   : I'm sorry to hear that.
  Sook : I should have studied harder.  What should I do now? 
            My mother will be really disappointed.
  Kyu   : Don't take it so hard.  I'm sure you'll do better next time.
  Sook : Well, I'm not sure.  Studying is not my cup of tea. [내 취향이 아니야]
  Kyu   : Cheer up.  And feel free to ask me, if you need any help.
  Sook : All right.  It's very good of you to say so.
