사탕 발린 위로를 영어로?

'Eating your feelings'이랑 좀 비슷하느 것 같아요. 'To eat one's feelings'은 슬퍼서 케이크나 아이스크림을 먹어서 스스로를 위로하는 뜻을 해요. 여자분들이 이걸 많이 하는 것 같아요. 하지만 미국인 남자들은 이걸 잘 안 해요. 여성스럽게 보일까 봐 무서워서요.

    The word "사탕(이) 발린 위로(의 말을 하다)" literally means "words of consolation covered with candy(or sugar)".

    This word may mean two meanings according to the context. It may mean either "to coax or soothe with sweet and honeyed words for consolation" or "to pretend to say words of consolation with a fake".
