#Drama Lines l 2022-07-04


건욱: 커피, 아이스로 줘요, 따뜻한 걸로 줘요? 

Geon-wook: Do you want iced coffee, or hot coffee? 

혜빈: 아무거나요. 아니 안 마셔요!

Hye-bin: It doesn’t matter. Actually, I don’t want any at all.

건욱: 비싼 것만 마시니까 뭐 우리 집 싸구려는 입에 맞겠어요? 잘 생각했어요.

Geon-wook: You only drink expensive stuff. Our cheap stuff probably wouldn’t suit your tastes. Good thinking. 

혜빈: 뭐야? 재수 없어! 

Hye-bin: What? You suck!
