Sorry that post that says
"Piece of cake (really easy)" should read in Korean:

Here are a few extra lines you might find uesful, I do.

1-Hang in there (don't give up/ stay positive).
끝까지 버텨

2-Let's hit the road (Let's be off/ Let's get going)
자, 출발하자!

3-It's not the end of the world!
세상이끝난건 아니다!

4-All's well that ends well.
끝이좋으면, 만사좋다.

5-Hunger is the best sauce.
quem deus perdere vult, primus dementat

not "낙자" (which Jo Sungkab tells me is an interesting combination of Chinese and German words, handed down from colonial Japanese usage and therefore offensive to many Koreans), but "로프 떠러져요" or just "로프!"


Rock Climbing (Face)

Ridge Climbing

Not feeling good today
아이 시 오늘 컨디션이 안좋다

I give up (e.g. on a hard climb)

I really give up (e.g. on my nemesis)
두손 다 드렀어

Summit booze

Do you know whose rope this is?
이거 누구 자율인지 아십니까?

You're out of your league compared to others here.
뻔대기 앞에서 주름잡지 마!

Please give me a tasty nutritious snack.
아줌마, 뻔대기 주세요.

Okay, the last one aint right. couldn't resist : )

The big blue Road Map to Korean is great at explaining Chinese influence on Korean (in English, using Chinese and Korean only to illustrate what the book is explaining!) which definitely brings new insight. When so far from my teacher, I find websites good as they "pronounce" better than a book. I don't remember the name of the book I was using with my teacher, but I'll get it as I think it's good in some ways. . .
"If you can't do something well, you might as well learn to enjoy doing it poorly." -- from a de-motivational poster, but I find it oddly liberating!
