기사 요약: 평창올림픽에 최신 로봇들이 동원된다. 공항에서 길을 안내하는 로봇부터 음료를 서빙하는 로봇까지, 평창올림픽에서 만날 수 있는 로봇들에 대해 알아본다.



Korean robots to add high-tech spin to Olympic Winter Games

[1] Athletes, staff and spectators making their way to PyeongChang this winter will have plenty to see in between the Olympic Games, with the latest robots from South Korea roaming the grounds to offer guidance, travel support and entertainment.

* plenty: 많은
* latest: 최신
* roam: 돌아다니다

* deployed: 배치되다

* humanoid: 인간과 비슷한

2. 성적 착취 논란, 아직은 조용한 한국 연예계

기사요약: 미국에서 시작된 #MeToo 운동을 비롯한 여러 움직임들이 전세계로 확산되고 있지만, 아직 한국 연예계는 성적 착취와 성희롱에 대한 논의를 하는 것을 꺼리고 있다.

Korean celebrities find it difficult to break silence on sexual exploitation

[1] American movements against pervasive sexual harassment -- #MeToo and Time’s Up -- have led to a slew of allegations against some of the world’s most powerful men.


* pervasive: 만연한
* a slew of: 대량 (flood, mountain)
* allegations: 혐의

[2] What started out as a tweet from a Hollywood actress encouraging those who have been victims of sexual harassment to use the hashtag #MeToo soon evolved into a global movement, starting with the downfall of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

* What started out as~: ~로 시작한 것
* evolve: 진화하다 (developed)
* downfall: 몰락, 파멸
* mogul: 중요인물, 거물

[3] However, the movement has gained little traction in South Korea, with only a handful of revelations receiving slight public attention.

* gain traction: 견인력을 얻다 (pick up steam, gain momentum)
* handful: 한 줌, 한 움큼
* revelations: 폭로

[4] As for the celebrities who one would think would have the power to get their stories heard, it appears it is still just as hard as before to go public.

* as for ~: ~의 경우
* it appears ~: ~로 보인다
* as ~ as before: 예전만큼이나 ~하다
