V/A+ 겠거니 하다


누구의 에스엔에스(SNS)인데 그렇게 열심히 보고 있어?
Who’s SNS(Social Network Service) is it that you are watching it so hard?
응, 내가 좋아하는 가수 거야. 그 가수가 요즘 너무 바빠서 게시물을 못 올리겠거니 했는데 날마다 올라오네.
Ah, it’s my favorite singer. I had thought he couldn’t do posting since he is so busy these days, but it’s coming up every day.
요즘 연예인들은 공연하랴, 에스엔에스(SNS) 관리하랴 정말 몸이 두 개라도 모자라겠어.
Performing, and managing their SNS, I think even two bodies would not be enough for celebrities these days.
맞아. 에스엔에스(SNS)가 팬들과 소통하는 중요한 공간이니까 소홀히 할 수 없지.
That’s right. They can’t neglect SNS because it’s an important space to communicate with their fans.
어떤 사람들에게 에스엔에스(SNS)는 더 이상 사적인 영역이 아닌 공식적인 공간이 된 것 같아.
For some people, SNS seems like an official space, not a private area anymore.
그렇지. 자신의 정치적 신념을 전하는 정치인들은 물론이고 일반인이 자기를 알리려고 할 때도 에스엔에스(SNS)를 이용하니까.
Yeah. Not only politicians who deliver their political beliefs, but common people also use SNS to make themselves known.
