V1+다가 V2 ~ V2 occurs while V1 is still happening

We can use this expression to say that the action V2 starts before V1 is finished.

Examples
공부하다가 잤어요
I fell asleep while studying

집에 가다가 천화할 거예요
I will call while I’m on my way home

신문을 읽다가 버스를 놓쳤어요
I was reading the newspaper when I missed the bus
