#Drama Lines l 2022-04-04


동호 : 제가 사과는 언제쯤 하시나 기다렸는데, 오늘도 그냥 가시네?

왜? 내가 뭐 틀린 말 했어? 

아니 사람 하나 잘못 들여서 학교 위상이 이게 뭐냐고. 

아, 둘인가?

Dong-ho: I was waiting for an apology, but I’m not getting one even today.

What? Am I wrong? 

We let one inadequate person in, and look what happens to the school’s image.

Oh, was it two?

동만 : 그러게요. 근본도 없는 것들이 굴러들어와서 사고나 치고. 

Dong-man: 죄송하게 됐습니다. 

You’re right. Those things with no roots have caused nothing but trouble. 

I apologize.
