Japanese to English translations [PRO] Art/Literary - Poetry & Literature
Japanese term or phrase:破顔
Original Sentence: 男は破顔した.
Obtained from a fiction novel.
I can't find this word in many dictionaries and even then the context doesn't make much sense; the meanings I have found vary from "destroying face" to "broad" to "broad smile," so I'm a bit confused.
