n.— «Adding or using the English gerund suffix “-ing” (or “-ting”) is quite common in Korean/Konglish, from “sogaeting” to “phone-ting” to “meeting” (group blind date). It just makes more sense logically when referring to activities.» —“[KS] re: “Chousenshi kenkyuukai ronbunshuu,” no. 41 (2003)” by J. Scott Burgeson  Koreanstudies maling list Dec. 28, 2003.
