Hi! Welcome come or welcome back to KoreanStudyJunkie. I’m Angel and in this blog post we are going to talk about 10 words that you’ll find in K-pop songs part 3. If you haven't read part 1, you can check it here, and click here for part 2. If you're curious about the reason why K-Pop can help you learn Korean, you can read the reason here.
It's a little bit different from the 2 part before, because I try to breakdown the line in the example. I'm really sorry if I made mistakes, you can tell me the correction in the comment down below😊

맘을 comes from the abbreviation of 마음 (heart) attached with 을 as an object particle
