Hello this is Korean Unnie that makes learning Korean fun and easy.

In this episode of Korean Unnie, you will learn another Korean idiom. It is important to learn and memorize the idioms of a foreign language because it is hard to know the meaning by just literally translating them.

The idiom that we are going to learn today is 굴뚝같다.
굴뚝 같다
굴 뚝 같 다
굴뚝같다

굴뚝 means a chimney
같다 means “it is like”
so 굴뚝같다 means “it is like a chimney”

Usually this idiom is used often with 마음
마음이 굴뚝같다
마음 means heart or mind

so 마음이 굴뚝같다 would literally mean “My mind is like a chimney”.

What could this possibly mean?
