머리부터 발끝까지 (from head to toe)

머리 – head
부터 – from
발끝 – end of the foot, tip of the toe
까지 – to

>> often used to refer to a person as a whole, not just the person’s physical aspects

>> [~부터 ~까지] can be used in many different situations
ex. 월요일부터 금요일까지
from Monday to Friday
ex. 서울부터 부산까지
from Seoul to Busan
ex. 1층부터 7층까지
from the first floor to the 7th floor

>> depending on the context, [발끝] could either mean “the toes” or “the heel”
