Lines 

Tae-woo: 혹시 그 사고에 대해서 목격하신 거나 들으신 게 있습니까?

Have you witnessed anything or heard anything about the accident?

Jae-hoon: 승합차가 추락했다... 관리인한테 그 정도만 들었어요.

I just heard from the manager that a van went down.

Tae-woo: 직접 보신 건 없구요?

You didn’t see anything?

Jae-hoon: 아니, 제가 한번 잠이 들면요, 누가 업어가도 모르는 스타일이라서.

어떡해요, 죄송해요. 제가 좀 도움을 드리고 싶은데, 미안합니다.

I’m the type of person who sleeps like a log. I don’t know what to say. I’m sorry. I wish I could be of help. 

Tae-woo: 아뇨. 괜찮습니다. 실례가 많았습니다.

That’s okay. Sorry for bothering you. 

Jae-hoon: 네.

No problem.
