Some Noun/Verb Combos in Korean

Idk what to title this but I just wanted to post a short list of different verbs that are paired with nouns differently than in English.

For example: in english we ‘take a nap’ but in korean you ‘sleep a nap’

Essentially

But here’s a few combos that I picked up recently:

낮잠을 자다

Take a nap

Literal: sleep a nap

신발 신다

To wear shoes

신다 = to wear/put on

안경/모자 쓰다

To wear a hat/to wear glasses

쓰다 = to use

피아노 치다

To play a piano

치다 = to hit

댓글을 달다

To write a comment

달다 = to be sweet / to hang
