호이가 계속되면 그게 둘리인 줄 안다

Idiom

Pronunciation

hoyga gyesokdaemyeon guegae doolyinjool anda

Definition (meaning)

Literally, this sentence means “If you say 'hoy' over and over again, people think you are as Dooly”. Dooly is the famous character of Korean cartoon and he says 'hoy' very often.

Actually, real meaning of this sentence is not important at all. This sentence is a parody of “호의가 계속되면 그게 권리인 줄 안다.”. Both sentences sound very similar and it's just a kind of pun,

e.g. 호이가 계속되면 둘리인 줄 안다더니, 이 자식이 날 공룡으로 보는구나?

Definition in other languages (意思 / significado / परिभाषा / 意味 / Bedeutung / définition / 뜻)

이 문장은 “호의가 계속되면 그게 권리인 줄 안다”를 패러디한 문장이다. 양 문장의 발음이 비슷하다는 것에 착안한 말장난의 일종이다. (Korean)
