오늘 영어표현은 such a drag입니다. If something or someone is described to be a drag, then that person or thing is boring, depressing, or is a problem for other people. Drag는 지루한 사람 , 지루한 것, 진력나게 하기라는 뜻이죠. SUCH는 명사를 강조하며 그처럼 … 한, 정말로 …한 이라는 뜻으로 쓰이고요. 그래서 such a drag 은 매우 귀찮고, 싫증 나며, 지루하게 하는 것이라는 뜻이 되는 겁니다. 예를 들어볼까요? “My weekend was such a drag.” 라고 하면 “지난 주말은 정말 지루했어.”라는 뜻이 되겠죠? 또 다른 예를 들어보겠습니다. “Clark is such a drag.” 하면 “어휴, 클라크는 정말 짜증 나는 친구야.” 라는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what it means for something or someone to be a drag right? Now let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.
