I’m not a sports fan. I rarely watch games and I can’t remember when was the last time I actually played a real sport. Thus I always struggle with sports related Korean vocabulary. I have the tendency to keep forgetting them.
A few days ago, I attempted to translate a part of the script of Kim Sun Ah’s latest movie – Fighting Spirit. It’s a family-sports drama – about baseball to be specific.
Aside from the fact that my Korean is still very lousy, I also had a difficult time translating (and understanding) words and phrases about baseball. There are some vocabulary that I know, and there are some that I searched in the dictionary, but I still can’t figure some of them out because I have no idea how baseball is played.
So, despite some pending tasks, I’m in the mood for some baseball movies this weekend. Any recommendations?
흑! I almost forgot that the drama I’m currently watching, 9 Ends 2 Outs, is all about baseball! ㅎㅎㅎ And I remember complaining that the baseball parts bores me to death! And now I’m looking for baseball movies. >.<
