어떡하죠?: What Should I Do?

Today is the first day of work after a long weekend.  Living in a Christian-Catholic dominated country, holy week is strictly observed as national holiday for repentance and reflection.  I may have been a shameless Catholic for having enjoyed the long vacation that started last April 1 for I have spent 75% of this vacation doing marathon viewing of some dramas I missed.

Someone asked if 어떻가죠 (Etteohkajyo) means ‘what should I do?’ incidentally this is one of the Official Sound Track (OST) of the drama i just finished watching last weekend.  It’s actually spelled 어떡하죠 (Etteokhajyo).  This is one of the songs from the light Korean Drama 미남이시네요 (Minamishineyo).  It  literally means ‘you are handsome’ but it was released with an English title ‘You’re Beautiful’.  I am loving this song specifically the one rendered by 장근석 (Jang Geun Seok).

This post is so random.  As it is right now, I want to fly to Korea for no reasons at all.  Reality is I would have to wait until December to be back *sigh*

    1. yup =) this is the drama OST and the phrase has been often used in the drama. Someone asked about how it is spelled so made me remember the drama which i really loved watching.

  1. Hi Jan,
    It’s great to find this site~!
    Regard to the name of this drama, I think the actual meaning is “It’s Minam” or “I am Minam”.
    Minam means beautiful boy. And it refers to the name of the main charactor Ko-Mi-Nam. Thanks!

    1. yeah that is right minam means pretty boy or beautiful boy, you know Korean drama titles are sometimes translated differently in English. I think sometimes the word the actual translation does not appeal to audience or is unconventional (for lack of better term to something that is not usually said in English).

  2. Ah ah ahhh! I love 미남이시네요 !!!! 장근석 사랑해요!!! Rewatched that drama 3 times and wanted to watch more but had no time XD. Nice blog!
