Red Shoes (7) 꿈 깨요



태길: 둘로 깔끔하게 갈라지면 그땐...그땐 우리 

Tae-gil: If this splits into two evenly, then… then we’ll… 

수연: 그땐 뭐요. (마음) 사귀자구? 

Soo-yeon: Then what? (thinks) He’s asking me out? 

태길: 뽀뽀하는 겁니다. 어때요? 

Tae-gil: We’ll kiss. What do you think?

수연: !! (마음) 미쳤나봐!!! 무슨 진도를 마구마구 건너 뛰어?! 아우 진짜. 

Soo-yeon: !! (thinks) He’s crazy! Why is he skipping bases like that! Oh my. 

수연: 아우 몰라! 나 배고파요. 빨리 줘요. 

Soo-yeon: I don’t know. I’m hungry. Hurry and give it to me. 

태길: 그럼 오케이죠? 

Tae-gil: Is that a yes? 

수연: 칫! 꿈 깨요. 어차피 그거, 불량이라 백퍼 부러져요. 

Soo-yeon: Humph! In your dreams. That’s faulty, so it’s going to break anyways.
