여기가 어디지? (yeo-gi-ga eo-di-ji?)
Where am I?

실례합니다. (sil-lye-ham-ni-da.)
Excuse me.

저는 “고물” 마을을 찾고 있습니다. (jeo-neun go-mul ma-eu-reul chat-go it-seum-ni-da.)
I'm looking for Gomul Town.

쭉 가면 사거리가 있어요. (jjuk ga-myeon sa-geo-ri-ga i-seo-yo.)
If you go straight, there’s an intersection.

거기 오른쪽에 병원이 있어요. (geo-gi o-reun-jjo-ge byeong-won-i i-seo-yo.)
There’s a hospital to the right of there.

그 병원 앞에 “고물” 마을로 가는 버스가 있어요. (geu byeong-won a-pe go-mul ma-eul-lo ga-neun beo-seu-ga i-seo-yo.)
In front of the hospital there’s a bus that goes to Gomul Town.

110번 버스예요. (110beon beo-seu-ye-yo.)
It’s the 110 bus.

알겠습니다. 감사합니다. (al-get-seum-ni-da. gam-sa-ham-ni-da.)
I see. Thank you.

생각한 거랑 좀 다른데? (saeng-gak-an geo-rang jom da-reun-de?)
It’s kind of different than I thought.

왜 아무도 없지? (wae a-mu-do eop-ji?)
Why is nobody here?

괴물이다! 어떡해! (goe-mu-ri-da! eo-tteok-ae!)
It’s a monster! Oh no!

마을에 괴물이 너무 많아! (ma-eu-re goe-mu-ri neo-mu ma-na!)
There are too many monsters in this town!

이런! 여기는 “괴물” 마을이잖아! (i-reon! yeo-gi-neun goe-mul ma-eu-ri-ja-na!)
Dang! This is “Monster” Town!

버스를 잘못 탔나 봐. 어떻게 돌아가지? (beo-seu-reul jal-mot tan-na bwa. eo-tteo-ke do-ra-ga-ji?)
I guess I took the wrong bus. How do I go back?

도망가야겠다! 택시! 택시! (do-mang-ga-ya-get-da! taek-si! taek-si!)
I gotta get out of here! Taxi! Taxi!
