(HQ 2.4):   Actually, [qon] is the word translated in TKD as the verb record, meaning to make a record of something (whether this record be written or a digital recording or an old-fashioned wax cylinder or anything).

(qepHom 2017 p.20):  {SuS} [blow (into wind instrument) to produce sound] ... can also be used for blowing out a candle.  With {SuS} you're blowing into/onto/at something, but the air gets out of the thing (or never goes in it).
