01.Β Interesting Korean expression of rice cakes

The word 'tteok' has idiomatic meaning of 'good things'. "What kind of rice cake is this?" Or there's a funny Korean expression like, "If you listen to me, you'll get rice cakes even in your sleep." In short, it means, "What a windfall!" and "If you listen to me well, you will get lucky even in your sleep."
