Korean to English: B사감과 러브레터 (Housemistress B and the Love Letters)
General field: Art/Literary
Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - Korean
이 B 여사가 질겁을 하다시피 싫어하고 미워하는 것은 소위 ‘러브 레터’였다. 여학교 기숙사라면 의례히 그런 편지가 많이 오는 것이지만 학교로도유명하고 또 아름다운 여학생이 많은 탓인지 모르되 하로에도 몇 장씩 죽느니 사느니 하는 사랑 타령이 날아들어 왔었다. 기숙생에게 오는 사신을 일일이 검사하는 터이니까 그 따위 편지도 물론 B 여사의 손에 떨어진다. 달착지근한 사연을 보는 족족 그는 더할 수 없이 흥분되어서 얼굴이 붉으락푸르락 편지든 손이 발발 떨리도록 성을 낸다.
Translation - English
What this woman (we’ll call her B) truly hated and despised were the so-called “love letters.” Such things were a common sight in the dorms of all-girl schools, but perhaps because this school was a prestigious one with many beautiful girls, countless desperate outpourings of love poured in every single day. B was in charge of inspecting every single communication that was addressed to a student of the school; of course it fell to her to check such despicable items as well. Every time the candied words of some male student fell out of an envelope, she fell into such a rage that her face turned a bright red and her hands trembled.

미진 (받으며) 예 오빠...
중호 어디야.
미진 미안해요. 몸이 너무 안 좋아서요. 오빠 오늘 하루만 쉴께요.
중호 어디가 안 좋은데?
미진 감기 같아요. 열도 나고...
중호 감기. 한여름에 감기에 걸렸다고. (한숨) 남자랑 같이 있냐?
미진 아녜요.
중호 그럼 너도 그년들처럼 도망가는 중이야?
미진 왜 그래요, 오빠.
중호 좋은 말할 때 일 나가. 욕 처먹고 나서 질질 짜지 말고. 어?
미진 (흘낏 은지를 본다)
중호 왜 대답이 없냐?
미진 오빠...
Translation - English
Mi-jin: (Picking up the phone) Yes, Joong-ho...
Joong-ho: Where are you.
Mi-jin: I’m sorry, I’m very ill. Let me just take the day off.
Joong-ho: How are you ill?
Mi-jin: I think I have a cold. I’m running a fever as well...
Joong-ho: A cold. In the middle of summer. (Sighs) Are you with a man?
Mi-jin: No.
Joong-ho: Then are you running away like the others?
Mi-jin: Don’t be like that.
Joong-ho: Get to work before I get angry. I know you’re going to cry again when you get browbeaten. Hm?
Mi-jin: (Glances at Eun-ji)
Joong-ho: Hello?
Mi-jin: Look...
