I don’t buy it


Hi everyone, this is Jennifer Yoo with ENGLISH WITH YOO! 안녕하세요 English with Yoo!의 Jennifer Yoo입니다.

오늘의 표현은 I don’t buy it 입니다.


If you say you don’t buy it, does that mean you’re not purchasing something? Before we find out what it means, let’s listen to today’s conversation. 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘I don’t buy it’이 무슨 뜻인지 알아 보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요.

I don’t buy it

Jen: Guess what! I bought a flight ticket from New York to Korea for only $400!

Jason: What? $400? No, I don’t buy it. That’s impossible! The airfare has got to be at least $800 and up! I’ve never heard of anyone buying a ticket that cheap.

Jen: Well, you’d better believe what I’m saying.

Jason: No, I still don’t buy it.

본문에서 저는 친구 Jason에게 미국 뉴욕에서 한국까지 가는 항공권을 $400에 샀다고 자랑합니다. “Guess what! I bought a flight ticket from New York to Korea for only $400!” 그러자Jason이 “What? $400? No, I don’t buy it. That’s impossible! 뭐? $400 샀다고? 에이, 난 못 믿겠어. The airfare has got to be at least $800 and up! I’ve never heard of anyone buying a ticket that cheap. 그런 항공권은 아무리 싸도 800달러는 넘는데, 너처럼 싸게 샀다는 얘기는 들어본 적이 없어.”라고 말합니다. 이어서 제가 “Well, you’d better believe what I’m saying. 내 말을 믿는 게 좋을 걸.”이라고 거듭 말했지만, Jason은 여전히 “No, I still don’t buy it. 아니, 그래도 못 믿겠어.”라고 합니다. Now keep today’s expression, ‘I don’t buy it’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

Jen: Guess what! I bought a flight ticket from New York to Korea for only $400!

Jason: What? $400? No, I don’t buy it. That’s impossible! The airfare has got to be at least $800 and up! I’ve never heard of anyone buying a ticket that cheap.

Jen: Well, you’d better believe what I’m saying.

Jason: No, I still don’t buy it.

Today’s expression is I don’t buy it. If you don’t buy it, it simply means that you don’t believe it. I don’t buy it을 직역하면, ‘난 그것을 사지 않겠다’, 즉 ‘그 말을 믿을 수 없다’는 뜻이 됩니다. 어떤 물건을 살 때 그 물건에 대한 믿음이나 신뢰가 있으니까 사는 거잖아요? 그래서 무언 가를 사지 않겠다는 'I don't buy it' 이라는 표현은, 어떤 얘기를 믿지 못하겠다는 의미로 사용하는 겁니다.

In today’s conversation I was so excited to share with Jason that I had purchased an airline ticket from New York to Korea for only $400. 오늘 본문에서 제가 Jason에게 뉴욕에서 한국까지 가는 항공권을 $400에 샀다고 자랑하자, Jason은 믿지 못하겠다고 합니다. “What? $400? No, I don’t buy it. That’s impossible!”라고요.

Now let’s go over some example sentences using today’s expression. 그럼 예문을 통해 오늘 표현을 더 자세히 알아보겠습니다. “What! Kyle was late? He’s never late! I don’t buy it.”라는 문장이 있습니다. 해석하면 “뭐? Kyle이 늦었다고? 에이, 그는 절대 지각하는 법이 없어, 난 그 말 못 믿겠어.”라는 말입니다. Here is another example. “I told Gloria that the item is sold out, but I don’t think she buys it.”라는 문장은 “내가 Gloria한테 그 물건이 다 팔렸다고 알려줬는데도, 안 믿는 것 같아.”는 뜻이 되겠죠. ‘I don’t buy it’이라는 표현 잘 기억하시고요. 마지막으로 오늘의 대화를 들어보겠습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.

I don’t buy it

Jen: Guess what! I bought a flight ticket from New York to Korea for only $400!

Jason: What? $400? No, I don’t buy it. That’s impossible! The airfare has got to be at least $800 and up! I’ve never heard of anyone buying a ticket that cheap.

Jen: Well, you’d better believe what I’m saying.

Jason: No, I still don’t buy it.

Let’s review what we have learned today. If you don’t buy it, it means that you simply don’t believe it. I DON’T BUY IT. Now try using this expression on your own. 지금까지 ENGLISH WITH YOO에 Jennifer Yoo입니다. Until next time, bye bye!
