오늘의 표현은 it’s written all over your face입니다.

Today we are going to learn a fun expression – it’s written all over your face. Before we find out what that means, let’s listen to today’s conversation. Listen carefully. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘it’s written all over your face’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

It’s written all over your face!
Jason: Hey Jen, it looks like you’re upset about something. What’s wrong?
Jen: It’s nothing. I’m not upset about anything.
Jason: Come on, it’s written all over your face.
Jen: Is it really written all over my face?
Jason: Yes it is, so don’t try to hide it. Just tell me.
Jen: Okay, fine

본문에서 Jason이 제게 “Hey Jen, it looks like you’re upset about something. What’s wrong? 잰, 너 화나 보이는데, 무슨 일 이라도 있는 거니?”라고 묻습니다. 그러자 제가 “It’s nothing. I’m not upset about anything. 아무 일도 아니야. 화 안 났어.”라고 합니다. 하지만 Jason 이 “Come on, it’s written all over your face. 에이, 네 얼굴에 다 써있는데 뭐.”라고 하자 제가 “Is it really written all over my face? 그래? 내 얼굴에 다 써있어?”라며 놀랍니다. 그러자 Jason이 “Yes it is, so don’t try to hide it. Just tell me. 그래, 그러니까 숨기려고 하지 말고, 그냥 말해 봐.”라고 합니다. 그제서야 저는 “Okay fine. 알았어.”라고 답합니다.

Today’s expression is it’s written all over your face. If you say to someone, “it’s written all over your face”, you are saying that their expression on their face is clearly revealing their true feelings or thoughts. It’s written all over your face는 ‘얼굴에 다 써있다’는 뜻입니다. 그러니까 감정이나 표정을 숨길 수 없을 때 쓸 수 있는 표현이죠. 오늘 본문에서 제가 화가 많이 나있다는 걸 Jason이 바로 알아봅니다. Jason이 저의 드러난 표정을 읽고 추측한 거죠. “Come on, it’s written all over your face.”라고요. 예를 들어서 저는 제 여동생이 무슨 생각을 하고 있는지 말하지 않아도, 얼굴만 봐도 압니다. 동생의 들어나는 표정 때문에 슬픈지, 기쁜지 또는 화가 나있는지 다 알 수 있습니다. 이럴 때 ‘it’s written all over your face’라는 영어 표현을 쓸 수 있다는 걸 잘 알아두세요.

그럼 예문을 통해 오늘 표현을 좀 더 자세히 알아보겠습니다. “You ate the last slice of pizza didn’t you? It’s written all over your face!”는 “마지막 피자 조각 네가 먹었지? 얼굴에 다 써있어.”라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example. “Don’t try to lie because it will be written all over your face.”, 이 문장에도 오늘 배운 표현이 들어있는데요. “거짓말 할 생각은 하지도 마. 네 얼굴에 다 써 있을 테니까.” 로 해석할 수 있습니다. ‘It’s written all over your face’ 이 표현 잘 기억하시고요. 마지막으로 오늘의 대화를 다시 한 번 들어보겠습니다.
