무척 좋아하다

오늘의 영어 표현은: to be crazy about something

You know, my friend goes crazy when there is a huge sale going on at the mall and I have to admit that I do too. So we both decided to go to the mall during the weekend and shop.

주말에 백화점에서 할인 판매를 한다고 해서 저는 친구와 함께 가기로 했습니다. 할인 판매만 하면 괜히 신이 나거든요.

There is one jewelry store that I really like in particular, and they were also having a big sale too so I decided to go in and buy my sister a necklace.

There I met Caroline who was also picking out some necklaces for her nieces. She told me that last year she bought necklaces for her nieces. And they really really liked it. They went crazy for them. That's why she is back again this year to buy similar necklaces for her nieces.
