I love the use of the Korean alphabet to emphasize the thoughts about the menu item... 8)

Not that great

So I was staring at the phrase 총계로, and while my Korean isn't fluent my Korean slang is pretty good, and I had no idea what it meant. So I looked it up and it meant "the total." It wasn't until I asked my husband for help that he suggested that maybe you were trying to say "Totally." So I plugged that into Babelfish to see if that's what you were trying to do, and sure enough, Jin was supposed to be saying, "Totally." :o Unfortunately, that is a phrase that only works through the magic of Babelfish (try translating anything into Chinese or Korean and then back into English and you will see what I mean about Babelfish's "magic"). I would suggest 진자, meaning "really," which actually IS a phrase used in Korean. :grumble:
