“Customer Service” translation

April 10, 2009

This is a pretty lame post. It’s essentially just to feed my curiosity ^^;;

I’m trying to get a solid translation of Epik High’s “Customer Service” skit, because it cracks me up with what little knowledge I have of Korean, and I would love to pinpoint more specifically what they’re saying with some help. I have no idea if there is a translation for it or not in the book because I don’t have it yet… still trying to get the money for my non-iTunes copy. I found a summarized translation of it on mapthesoul.com (which answered some questions about a few words I wasn’t positive about), but that’s it. Anyone want to help clean this up?

As as side note, I heard that the guy is supposed to be saying, “Hello,” in Chinese (Cantonese?), so that’s what I put it as. I’m not 100% on it though, so let me know what you think.

Translation so far:

Edit: Thanks to Sevnrock for some help with translation! Items with “*” are courtesy of this lovely person.
