Etymology[edit]

Ideophonic: reduplication of the root 두근 (dugeun) (whence also 두근거리다 (dugeun-georida, “to pound, to palpitate”)), which is possibly from the root 둥글다 (dunggeulda, “to be round”). Weaker form: 도근도근 (dogeundogeun). Compare 두그르르 (dugeureureu, “rolling, tumbling”).

Pronunciation[edit]
