* The one who likes you will walk [to your wedding]
And the one who dislikes you will tell you he didn't know
* Sand is not to be made into dough and thorns are not to step on
And a secret is not to be told to all people
* The friend who you like and have hopes for
Put some pressure on him and you will find his bad side
* O, loved ones, how are you?
We are the same, but you have changed
