In today’s blog post, we will be learning the phrase 달려요.
달려요 comes from the basic form of run ‘달리다, and means “to run”. Despite the literal meaning of running (action), 달려요 / 달린다 can also mean figuratively to ‘go on’, ‘work’ or to ‘depend on’.
Whereas, 뛰어요 will be the literal action of jumping/running and cannot be used figuratively.
계속 달려요 = Keep going!
올해 더 열심히 달려요! = Let’s work harder this year
내가 갈지 안 갈지 오빠에게 달린다 = It will depend on oppa if I’m going or not.
누나가 마라톤에 뛰어요! = Sister is running in the marathon!
After our explanation below, you now know that BTS’s popular variety show ‘Run BTS’ or ‘달려라 방탄” does not literally mean for them to run, but to go forward/do something for a long time.
