#1: 전화를 끊을 때: hang up(X) --> 오해의 소지가 적은 go
Well, I gotta go 또는 I have to go now 등.
hang up: 전화를 끊는 걸 직설적으로 표현하는 hang up은 말투에 따라 무례하게 들릴 수 있어요.
*Collins 사전: if you hang up, you end a phone call.
if you hang up on someone you are speaking to on the phone, you end the phone call suddenly and unexpectedly.
A: Charlotte, I'm hanging up.
B: Don't you dare hang up and..
더 이상 통화하고 싶지 않을 때 hang up 사용
I'm hanging up.
대화 중 뚝 끊었을 때
Did you just hang up on Bloomberg?
hang up보다 오해의 소지가 적은 go
Well, I gotta go 또는 I have t ogo now 등.
Listen, you probably need to get back to work.
I know I do. I should go.
조금 더 부드럽게.
I'm gonna let you go now.
