1. Weddings again under threat as ‘unfair’ Level 4 rules allow only up to 49 guests

요약: 결혼식 하객 49인 제한을 두고 정부 탁상행정 비판하는 예비부부들

[1] Wedding ceremonies in South Korea face another round of cancellations and disappointment, as restrictive virus rules limit the number of guests and force organizers to pivot from their game plans.

*restrictive: 제한하는
*pivot: (축을 중심으로) 회전하다

[2] At the moment, Seoul, Incheon and Gyeonggi Province are under Level 4 social distancing rules, limiting the number of guests at weddings there to 49. The rule is not likely to be relaxed anytime soon, which has drawn immense anger from to-be-married couples and wedding venues alike.

*at the moment: 지금, 그때
*immense: 엄청난

[3] Officials and experts have estimated the worst may be yet to come, with some speculating the current rules will remain in place at least until the end of the Chuseok holiday period in late September.

*speculate: 추측, 짐작하다
*remain: 계속 ~ 이다, 남다

[4] With little chance of rules being relaxed in sight, some couples have been postponing their weddings, while others have no choice but to hold their ceremonies as scheduled with empty seats, incurring financial damages from the still-running buffets.

*in sight: 시야 안에
*postpone: 연기하다, 미루다
*incur: (좋지 못한 상황을) 초래하다, (비용을) 물게 되다
