https://i.imgur.com/eUuo9gS.jpg I came across this dialogue from a Korean drama where adari was quoted as from Japanese with a translator's note explaining the meaning as "it just happened this way coincidentally". However, I can't seem to look up anything about adari or the meaning of it from my searches online. Can someone help me out with this?

    adari じゃなくて atari「[当]{あ}たり」じゃないんですかね – Chocolate Sep 22 '17 at 7:58
  • You should first verify if Korean and English subtitles match. – macraf Sep 22 '17 at 8:07
  • 詳しくはないんですが韓国語では清音と濁音の区別がない らしく,韓国語経由で音写された結果 d になったのかも – Yosh Sep 23 '17 at 2:31
  • @Chocolateさんはそういうのは可能性があるね。 韓国語に、「아다리」(adari)が言ったら、「あたり」みたいな音がするんだそうだ – psosuna Sep 26 '17 at 23:13
