Is this phrase an idiom?



South Korea

"hide behind the bush"


This is from this sentence, "Literally a 7 year old child; after hiding behind the bush, asking “are you gay?”, asked that question to one of my mates."

I think the expression you are thinking of is "beat around the bush." To beat around the bush means to not say something directly. Sometimes people "beat around the bush" because they are scared or embarrassed to say what they really mean.


Thanks for your question!
