    Is it "Bastard" in Japan or "Yarou"?

    • God, I just realized that the original point of this thread was never addressed? Here I go:

      The Korean title for Bastard is "후레자식," which doesn't actually strictly mean "bastard." If you drop it into Google Translate, all it'll give you is the word "cunt," which really isn't accurate either. I asked my parents about the exact meaning according to them, "후레자식" is a harsh and pretty specific insult regarding one's parents. Something like, "your parents failed in raising you." The explanation they give in EP24 is pretty much it. ("Kids who don't listen to their parents and rebel against them")

      That's not really what the word "bastard" means, though. "Bastard" refers to children born out of wedlock. It's also a really generic insult. The translators probably went for it because both "bastard" and "후레자식" are parent-related insults. I'd agree that the best English equivalent for "후레자식" is "bastard," but it still falls short and it doesn't work all that well. It also really sucks because a lot of Korean insults can translate easily to "bastard," but because you want to avoid dropping the title in insignificant places when translating, you have to find alternatives. In the Korean release, the title is only dropped twice (in EP24 and in a later chapter). The English release ends up dropping it more than it should because it went with "Bastard" as a title, and "bastard" is used much more often as an English insult than "후레자식" is used as a Korean insult.

      Not sure if I made enough sense :'D but I hope that helped!
