Explanation:
This is pretty self-explanatory. It's one of those rare times when Korean and English expressions actually match up. It makes me wonder whether the Korean expression might have originated as a translation of the English one.

agree  Kortrans: I didn't know about this phrase, but I confirmed it with my other friend. The answer is correct, but I don't think the Korean word 짜집기 originates from English. One more thing - the spelling of 짜집기 is not correct. Its correct spelling is 짜깁기.
