In Drinking Savio Leel승인2010.05.04l수정2015.05.11 11:09l298호 3면






Your friend, Chan broke up with his girlfriend. So you brought him to a bar
that is open 24/7. When you asked him how he felt, he looked okay with parting. But a song named ‘I miss you’ sung by Bum-Soo Kim surrounded the atmosphere. He started to think of her and memories they had together. He even
began to cry although he did not drink at all. When you saw his tears in his eyes, you made your mind to drink all night with him even though you have a 9AM class tomorrow morning. How would you express that “죽을만큼 마셔보자.”
in English?

Chan: I miss her. And I am so sorry even though she dumped me.
You: But you told me you are fine with that.
Chan: I know but... you don’t know how I feel.
You: Well, let’s go all the way!
Chan: Thank you. But don’t you have a class tomorrow morning?
You: Come on, what are friends for?

You had a party yesterday in celebration for a new semester. You met your
friends and you were excited because you haven’t seen them for ages. There
were a lot of freshmen you didn’t know; all of them looking young and cute to
you. After drinking, there was one person in the crowd that looked special. So
you approached him and talked to him. And when you two were drunk, you
kissed him. Today, you see him and want to pretend not to remember anything.
How would you express that “필름이 끊겼어.” in English?

The man: Hello, Boram! Did you go back home well yesterday?
You: Well... yes.
The man: Do you remember yesterday... we...kissed...
You: I got blacked out yesterday! I drank too much Soju and beer.
The man: ...
You: I have to go. See you later.
