Does anybody speak Korean.....I've got to know what he said.
I have a cousin by marriage who's from South Korea. ;)  But she doesn't watch Lost.  Sorry.


I loved that scene; it was just so funny.  And the way Jin told the story was perfect-- he was good at just making it sound scary even though no one there knew what the heck he was saying.  ;D


Hurley know some words the same way Jin knows english, They spent 82 days together. It's bound to rub off a little.
Or he mistook something Jin said.  Either way it's still funny.

I wonder what ghost story has a bird in it...  Maybe a popular Korean ghost story?

Jins ghost story was about a dragon, since dragons are from Korea. Another intresting thing that might tie this in is the 4-toe statue. In Korea and the orient dragons have 4 toes. Not to say that Jins funny campfire story might not have been about the man with a hook for a hand. But maybe we can see a bit further into this. The "bird" that everyone keeps mentioning is actually a dragon possibly. The Koreans myth on dragons actually talk of a small green dragon that can speak.
Just a thought......

If somebody could get me a youtube of it or something I could try and have a Korean friend/friend who lives in Korea translate it.

Hi, I'm new here, and I'm Korean. I translated Jin's story as best I could. Here it is:

(little girl's voice) “Thank God. I was frightened you’d left because I double-crossed you.”
(Jin narrating) After hearing this, the man smiled and said,
(man's voice) “Don’t worry, dear girl. You should know that I have… A HOOK FOR A HAND!!!”

Also, we hear Jin finishing up the story but I did not hear anything about the bird which Hurley mentions. Perhaps the bird was mentioned earlier on and they just didn't show that part. I'm sure Hurley is right about a bird being part of the story.

The Korean word for bird is seh. Pronunced with an "s" sound then switching to "heh". "s-heh". To say it properly you shouldn't pause between "s" and "heh", just say it all together like one word.

I agree, it does seem strange. First, why would the girl be glad to see someone she deceived? And if she knew him well enough to feel that way about him why wouldn't she know he had a hook for a hand? But... that's what he said.  :D

Ya, the story is contrived....obviously meant to be an egg.  (Remember in the Man From Tallahassee, the television show before Locke in his apartment was Expose and the dialogue was similar to the whispers....he's one of us, i can get him).

The reference of a girl being glad to see someone whom she had deceived is an allusion to Sun's relationship with Jin.  There has been a deception there yet they remain together.  It might also foreshadow a deception that is coming....Juliet, Naomi, etc.

The line regarding a hook for a hand obviously means that the one armed Dharma scientist is going to make an appearance soon!

This is what Jin's ghost story was about.

"And the girl turned to the man who saved her and said , 'Thank God. I was afraid you were the Hook Man.' And the man looked at the girl with a smile and said, 'Don't worry, little girl. My hook is....STILL IN YOUR FATHER'S HEAD!"

Pretty cool........     ;D

Yeah, I entered that into Lostpedia the other day. What's odd about that translation is that Jin never says this part: "And the girl turned to the man who saved her and said,". Also, I don't hear her referring to the man as the "Hook Man". I need to listen to Jin again to double-check my translation as I may be wrong about the part with the father's head. I do think the version you posted is pretty cool.
