'~아/어 가다 [a/eo gada]' is a Korean grammar form that is used to express the continuity or duration of an action. It gives the implication that the action keeps ongoing without a specific end, much like 'go on doing something' in English. This form indicates that the action is done steadily or continuously, perhaps even despite difficulties.
