Han Dong-hee:야, 특별전형 노리는 애들 내신 성적 다 거기서 거기야.

그리고 공부 못하는 애들 모인 학교에서 내신 성적 1등급.  이거 아무 경쟁력 없어. 

Hey, the grades of students who are aiming for special admission are all about the same. Ranking among the top tier at a school full of students who aren’t very academic doesn’t really give you an edge. 

Kim Ji-eun:알고 있는데요.

I know.
