Old lover : 야, 최지훈! 

Hey, Choi Ji-hoon! 

Jung Hae-ra:아 어떻게. 

Oh, no. 

Old lover : 야 네가 어떻게 나한테 이럴 수 있어?

내가 널 얼마나 사랑했는데. 내 돈 8천 내놔. 이 나쁜 새끼야. 아 왜 이래요. 진짜.

How could you do this to me? I loved you so much. Give me back my money you bastard. Let go of me!

Jung Hae-ra:자기야. 이게 다 무슨 일이야.

Honey, what’s going on?

Old lover :  뭐야? 이렇게 빈티 나는 여자 돈까지 뜯은 거야?

이 사람 백수예요. 검사 아니라고.

What, you took money from this poor looking girl, too?

This guy’s jobless. He’s not a prosecutor.
