오늘의 표현은 hands down입니다.

The phrase ‘hands down’ means ‘unquestionably, very easily’. ‘Hands down’은 ‘아주 쉽게’라는 뜻입니다. So basically if someone wins somebody very easily, we can say that he or she won ‘hands down’. 누군가가 상대를 아주 쉽게 이길 때 이 표현을 쓸 수 있습니다. ‘Hands down’ is derived from horse racing. ‘Hands down’은 원래 경마에서 온 말인데요. ‘Hands’는 ‘손’, down’은 ‘아래로’라는 뜻이니까 손을 아래로 내리다라는 의미가 되죠. If a jockey found himself far ahead of the competition, the rider might choose to relax his hold and lower his hands, being confident that victory was only a few gallops away. 경마에서 승리를 눈앞에 둔 기수는 더는 말을 다그칠 필요가 없겠죠. 그래서 고삐 잡은 손에 힘을 빼며 느긋하게 아래로 내려 놓습니다. 어차피 다 이긴 경기니까요. 이런 상황에서 이 표현이 생긴 것이죠. 오늘의 표현, ‘hands down’ 꼭 기억하시고요. Now we’ll listen to this conversation for the last time.
