in one ear and out the other

does not listen
(한귀로 듣고 한귀로 흘린다 )

I’ve told him a hundred times not to go out without his coat on, but what I say just goes in one ear and out the other.
(그에게 겉옷 입고 나가라고 수백번이나 얘기했지만 그냥 한귀로 듣고 한귀로 흘린다.)

Why don’t you let in one ear and out the other?(왜 한 귀로 듣고 한 귀로 흘리지 그러세요?)

Conversation 1
Wife to her husband.

A: Hi there.
B: God, you’re home early, I wasn’t expecting you so soon.
A: Did you put the washing out on the line for me?
B: No, you didn’t tell me to.
A: Yes I did, I told you before I went out. I said that it was really important because I need to get the clothes dry.
B: I don’t remember that, was I awake?
A: Yes you were, I swear everything I say just goes in one ear and out the other.
Do I have to write everything down for you?
B; That would probably be a good idea.

부인이 남편에게
A: 다녀왔어요.
B: 어머, 일찍왔네요. 이렇게 빨리 올줄은 몰랐어요.
A: 내 세탁물 널었어?
B: 아니요, 그런말 안했잖아요?
A: 아냐, 했어. 나가기 전에 말했잖아. 옷 꼭 말려야 한다고 그랬잖아.
B: 그런 기억없는데, 나 깨있었어요?
A: 깨있었어. 당신은 내가 하는 말은 그냥 다 한귀로 듣고 한귀로 흘리는 구만?
전부 적어줘야해?
B; 그거 좋은 생각이네요.

Conversation 2
Two women discussing their partners

A: Why is it that they never do what you ask them to?
B: I don’t know, it’s like they are deaf half the time.
A: Yeah, but they are only deaf when you ask them to do something.
B: I know, everything that I say that he doesn’t want to hear just seems to go in one ear and out the other. For example, last week I reminded him about his sister’s birthday, I even bought him a card, and then on her birthday I asked him if he had sent it. He hadn’t! The card was still on the table where I had left it. It drives me crazy!
A: But if it is something that they want to do then they never forget.
B: Of course.

두명의 여가자 자신들의 파트너에 대해 이야기하고 있다.

A; 왜 그남자들은 말을 안듣지?
B: 모르겠어, 거의 귀를 막고있는 것 같애.
A: 맞아, 뭐 해달라고 할 때만 안듣고 있지.
B: 알아. 내가 한말 중에 듣기 싫은 말은 그냥 한귀로 듣고 한귀로 흘리는 것 같애. 예를 들면 지난주에 그사람 누나 생일이라고 카드까지 사주었는데, 생일날 보냈냐고 물어보니까, 안한거있지. 내가 놔둔자리에 카드가 그래로 있는거야. 얼마나 화가나는지.
A: 근데 자기들이 하고 싶은 거는 절대로 안잊어버리지.
B: 물론이야.
