The DBO Timeline...Again

Postby TheDevilsCorpse » Sat Jan 12, 2013 2:45 pm

After Herms was kind enough to translate the Japanese Google Translate version of the Korean DBO timeline I provided into English, I made a new friend who actually speaks Korean. Herms had some issues with certain entries and words thanks to the text being shuffled across multiple languages, so I asked her to help with deciphering the portions we were having issues with. Seemingly true to her personality over the past few months, instead of just translating those muddied portions, she decided to retranslate the whole timeline to compare against the English version we have now.

This was probably a good decision on her part. She said Herms' translations are pretty accurate overall, but looking over the two versions, there are some slight differences and extra tidbits we didn't even realize were lost at first. So, moving forward, she said to use Herms' work as a base and then then integrate any important changes or missing information into the entries. So, that's pretty much what I did.

Also, since she was going back over the timeline, I figured I could browse through the original DBO trailer to see what information I could grab from the history book. Back when the trailer was first released, it was horrible in quality. Now, we can rip the video directly from the game in HD, so the entries are generally a lot clearer. Some of the previous information gathered from the book was inaccurate, so I've included new versions of those in here as well. The only one I couldn't figure out was the entry about meteors, but I'll document it below anyway.

AGE 85X
    Meteors fell down...due to the island gas...
    [Ref: DBO Trailer #1's history book.]
We never get the last number in the year, and we never get a good look at the full text either. So I've provided both what I can decipher and an image containing the highest quality shot of the page as it turned, frame by frame, in the video. It can't really be solved, but I just felt it should be noted: http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/2346/meteors.png

AGE 991
The Tenkaichi Budokai becomes more and more popular.
    Due to increasing interest in the martial arts, the Tenkaichi Budokai continues into the present era. In order to allow more young warriors to participate, the current tournament is divided up into “youth” and “adult” divisions once more, and there are both “single battles” and “team battles”. However, even after the passage of centuries, the basic rules of the tournament haven’t changed, and contestants still lose if they touch anywhere outside the ring.
    [Ref: ???]
This specific entry wasn't in the timeline pages of the DBO guidebook I provided my translator, and I can no longer find the Korean text version that we were trying to pop into Google translate. We were originally taking it from DongHyun's website, but it's now been made private unless you have an account with so many permission points or something. BUT, since it wasn't on the original version of the timeline, I also can't vouch for where it actually came from...


Now, on to the timeline itself. As with Herms' original topic, here is a little be of context; the official DB timeline places Goku and Bulma’s first meeting in AGE 749, and Goku taking off with Uub during the 28th Tenkaichi Budokai in AGE 784. With the first entry at AGE 779, the timeline starts right between the defeat of Buu and end of the manga, roughly five years both ways. As with some of Herms' timelines, a couple of changes have been made to a couple of years where math doesn't add up between entries, but the original years are still noted in the reference portion of the entry.

-------------------------

AGE 779
Lunch successfully breaks out of prison for the 100th time.
    [Ref: From DBO Trailer #1's history book ]

AGE 780
Pilaf makes another attempt to conquer the world, but fails…again.
    [Ref: From DBO Trailer #1's history book]

AGE 787
May 7th, Age 787
The 29th Tenkaichi Budokai. Winner: Mister Satan. Runner-up: Mister Buu
    Mister Satan's spectacular displays tremendously raise world-wide interest in the martial arts. The Tenkaichi Budokai becomes an even more popular sport, immortalizing Mister Satan and Mister Buu as stars.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

Dende resolves to deactivate the Dragon Balls.
    The Elder Kaioshin had already expressed his disapproval of the Dragon Balls—considering them to go against the natural order of the universe, and with the world now at peace, Dende worried having active Dragon Balls around may mean putting the Earth at risk.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 790
May 7th, Age 790
The 30th Tenkaichi Budokai. Winner: Mister Satan. Runner-up: Mister Buu
    As always, the pair continues to rig the tournament with phony battles.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

Mister Buu vows to take a lover. He splits himself in order to create a female Buu.
    Mister Buu becomes increasingly envious as he observes the intimacy of the human lovers around him. One day, in Mister Satan’s study, he came across the novel “Bob and Margaret’s Forbidden Games”, a classic of erotic fiction. Due to its influence, creates his ideal, female Buu.
    [Ref: From DBO Trailer #1's history book and the DBO timeline.]

AGE 791
Mister Buu and Missus Buu conceive a child through “booby-booby”. This marks the birth of the Majin race.
    Buu and his wife remember the term “booby-booby” from reading “Bob and Margaret’s Forbidden Games”. They tear off many pieces from various parts of their body and mix them together in “booby-booby”. By firing a Love-Love Beam, they birth life into the dumpling-shaped pieces. From that moment on, Buu’s descendants were recognized world-wide as the "Majin" race.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 793
Mister Satan announces his retirement from the world of martial arts.
    His official reason for retiring is to “give the next generation a chance”. However, the truth is that his partner, Mister Buu, had since lost interest in the Tenkaichi Budokai and it became impossible to continue rigging the tournament.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

Mister Satan starts the “Telecommunicated Satan-style Martial Arts Course”.
    The courses were an attempt to make money—but the videos were just overpriced rip-offs that featured flashy fight scenes enhanced through special effects.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 794
The “Telecommunicated Satan-style Martial Arts Course” is rebranded as the “Pan Fighting Network”, with Pan as the instructor.
    With customer claims that the “Telecommunicated Satan-style Martial Arts Course” is worthless rapidly spreading, disgruntled costumers flood Satan’s house, prompting Pan (age 15) to subdue them. The event becomes a big scandal and the “Telecommunicated Satan-style Martial Arts Course” is rebranded under Pan's tutelage. Afterwards, Pan asked Bulma tp help her develop a system for people to battle each other across long distances so that she could create a “Telecommunicated Martial Arts Dojo”. From this point on, the sports-like fighting course became very popular, especially among young people.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 796
The film “The Legend of Satan”, starring Mister Satan, is released.
    Those influenced by the film began studying how to control their “ki” from Pan, forming the origin of the present “Martial Artist” class.

    Mister Satan ends up being very active as a movie star. Appearing in all sorts of films, he played the role of various types of characters in everything from romance films to action flicks. “The Legend of Satan” used special effects to emulate Goku and company’s techniques in order to fight against the movie’s antagonists. Overall, it was a refreshing movie, but didn’t do well in at the box office; nevertheless, it solicited a cult-like popularity among different parts of the world.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 801
Son Goku disappears
    Realizing his death is imminent, Goku, who wanted to settle their rivalry, left the Earth with Vegeta. Years later, a supernova explosion was detected; perhaps caused by Son Goku and Vegeta’s battle.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 804
Gohan begins researching the martial arts of the past, organizing them in “The Science of Ki-Control”
    The death of his father causes Gohan to reflect on the power he wields, and so he devoted himself to scholarly research on the source of that strength—“ki”. “The Science of Ki-Control”, the book in which Gohan organized the results of his research, quietly gains popularity. One of the articles, “Katchin Can be Cut!”, has an immense influence in the birth of the "Swordsman" class.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 805
Trunks and Goten develop Kikokenjutsu (Ki-Control Swordsmanship), becoming the origin of the present “Swordsman” class.
    The “Katchin Can be Cut!” article in Gohan's “The Science of Ki-Control” book had a large impact on practitioners all across the world. Trunks and Goten were aware of this phenomenon; “Swordmanship’s cool—isn’t it. Let’s set up an awesome school all by ourselves!” The two became enthralled by this motivation. Via intense training, the two were able to develop their natural potential and establish a Kikokenjutsu school.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 820
Mister Satan dies. Earth's King honors him with a national funeral.
    The cause is…?
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

To avenge their fallen leaders, the remnants of Freeza’s solders invade Earth raining destruction and wreaking havoc throughout the world.
    After losing their leaders, Freeza’s army collapsed. However, the guard troops that served under Freeza and his father’s direct command remained persistent in their hopes to avenge them and waited for a chance to invade Earth.

    Because they had not been present at the time of Freeza and his father’s death, the guard troops knew nothing of the existence of Son Goku, Trunks or the others. So, after they investigated the Earth, the soldiers assumed that the "Earth’s Strongest Man,” Mister Satan, had been the one who killed Freeza. Knowing they’d be unable to handle anyone strong enough to defeat Freeza, they decided to leave Earth alone so long as Mister Satan was around.

    After learning of Satan’s death, they proceed with their invasion of Earth. The Earth’s Royal Army attempted to counterattack, but all fail.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

The Earth is faced with a crisis due to chubby aliens.
    Having researched Earth ahead of time, Freeza’s remnants invade the planet with a chubby species of alien impervious to both guns and standard martial arts techniques. Martial artists fighting against these aliens are beaten back; they are saved by Goten and Trunks, who put their “Kikokenjutsu” fighting style into practice. With their influence, the “Swordsman” class is born.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

West City’s capsule-ization
    West City, the home of King Cold and Freeza’s killer, Trunks, becomes a main target. Realizing the danger, Bulma works out a way to store the entire city inside a capsule for safekeeping.

    At this time, Majins from all over the world who had lost their homes in the destruction were protected within the city. Some of them decided to stay, even after the battle, and started to develop their own unique, Majin culture in West City.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

With the Earth in crisis, the heroes of the past gather at Kame-sennin’s place in order to eradicate the remnants of Freeza’s soldiers.
    The ones who ultimately defeat the Freeza’s soldiers are Kuririn, Tenshinhan, and their comrades—the heroes of the past. In order to hide their identities, the warriors put on Saiyaman-like costumes, but their ki-based fighting style still becomes a hot topic and global interest in “ki” escalates.

    Tenshinhan (87), Kuririn (84), Gohan: (63), Trunks (54), Goten (53), Pan (41), etc.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 821
Kuririn, who defeated Freeza’s soldiers, creates the “New Turtle School” and becomes the forerunner of the present’s “Turtle Hermit” class.

    After Son Gohan published the “Science of Ki-Control", and in the midst of increasing enthusiasm in ki-based martial arts, the hope-filled words of many wishing for the establishment of a school began to reach even Kame-sennin's ears. However, citing his old age, the Turtle hermit refused to accommodate these requests—instead, he passes down that role to Kuririn and Tenshinhan.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

“What can you do as a warrior of Earth?”
    Based on their respective answers to the Turtle hermit’s question, the two created the “New Turtle School” and the “New Crane School.”

    For Kuririn, his experiences in past battles had left him overwhelmingly awed at the gap in power between Earthlings and those of tremendous physical capabilities, such as the Namekians. Thinking hard about what role human warriors could play, he decided on a supportive mindset. Even if he could not deliver a decisive blow to an opponent by himself, there were ways to use aspects of the battle to one’s advantage—such as waiting for an opportunity to reduce the enemy's speed or strengthen one’s ally. He persuades the new generation of warriors that it was absolutely crucial to have a person who could play such a supportive role, that such people are needed in these battle roles in order to fight against truly overwhelming opponents. He had acted in precisely this capacity during many of his battles with Goku and the others, and he is convinced that assistance was not a “lesser “role.

    Perhaps Kuririn's decision to establish his school in the town in where Goku had first demonstrated his strength was an expression of his competitive spirit. Such beliefs continue to be carried by the "Turtle Hermits", even after Kuririn’s death.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline. Still no clarification on where his dojo is...]

Tenshinhan, who had previously trained alone, makes the “New Crane School” official. His pupils are the “Crane Hermits”.
    Tenshinhan had been lost in apprehension. Through his experiences in past battles along side the Saiyans, Piccolo and others, he's come to acknowledge the gap in power between humans and aliens, but refuses to accept it. While continuing his training as he travels all over the world, Tenshinhan comes to the conclusion that instead of playing a supporting role, it was important to focus on perfecting ki based attacks. Tenshinhan remembered how Goku used a Super Genki Dama against Majin Buu during their battle; that was the first time he had sent him his energy. Even in the battle against the artificial humans, whose power greatly outclassed his own, an well timed Shin Kikoho—although it did not deliver serious damage—seemed to have potential. No matter how strong an opponent is, if one can push their ability to gather ki for attacks to the extreme, it would be a great advantage. This key point was never forgotten. Tenshinhan’s belief of attacking with concentrated ki blasts at precise moments is carried on by subsequent “Crane Hermits”.

    Could it be that the reason Tenshinhan decided to open his dojo at the Mountain of Refreshing Scenery (formally Mount Frypan) was in order to not forget about the Turtle Hermit’s teachings?
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 825
The theme park “Booby World” opens in South City. The majority of the staff consists of Majins.
    Booby World’s owner is the millionaire Mister Bii-- the blind boy who Majin Buu healed in the past. To keep himself from forgetting his gratitude towards Buu for restoring his eyesight, he gave himself the name “Bii” and worked hard to amass a large fortune. Although Bii desired to express his gratitude to Buu, he was a big star who was always busy at the Tenkaichi Budokai, so he never got the opportunity.

    Mr. Satan's death and the onslaught of the Freeza's remnant soldiers left the people in desolate spirits. Mister Bii, who wanted to restore smiles to the people’s faces, planned the construction of a gigantic theme park. Just as he had received help from Buu in the past, he believed that it was his time to return the favor to everyone and leaves Mini-star Buu in charge of the production of the theme park. This was done in hopes that the Majin race's power to bring people joy would manifest once again.

    Booby World's construction begins; with “tasty” and “fun” as the themes, the park is divided into the “Tasty Zone” and “Fun Zone”. Many Majin are hired as employees and work on honing their skills.
    Among them, those who exhibit significant skills are known as “Dai-Majin”.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 826
    Yajirobe descends Karin Tower and begins cultivating Senzu beans on the surface.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 834
Majin Mani Mani protects people from Freeza’s remnants and dies in battle. His death leaves a huge impact on many Majins.
    The Majins influenced by Mani Mani become active throughout the world. They become the foundation for the present “Ulti-Ma”, “Gran-Ma”, "Plas-Ma" and “Kar-Ma” classes.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline. Added in the "Plas-ma" just "because" since it isn't mentioned anywhere else.]


AGE 851
New Namek is destroyed from an ambush by Mira and his army. Great Elder Muri and hundreds of Namekians emigrate to Earth.
    Following this, Namekians take up residence on Earth. Dende warns the Earth’s King about Mira’s army, but this information is kept secret from the average citizen in fear that it would cause a panic. Initially, the Namekians were protected in West City. Later, they moved to Porunga rocks and Yunzabit heights, though some remained in West City and developed their own culture.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 853
In order to atone for losing their home planet, the Namekians who relocated to Earth begin training to defend themselves. This results in the foundations for the modern “Shadow Warrior”, “Dark Warrior”, “Denden Priest”, and “Poko Priest” classes are established.
    Some of the monsters that Piccolo Daimao had spawned long ago still survive on Earth. Some were secretly incubated in places such as Pilaf’s castle, and others that had bred naturally in the wild. Piccolo became aware of their existence, but determined he could not resolve the situation on his own, and so he accepted it.

    A while after the Namekians had emigrated to Earth, at Great Elder Muri’s suggestion, Piccolo and a few other Namekians capture these monsters and keep them secured. In the midst of this, some Dragon clansmen started to research the monsters and were able to master handling them. This knowledge leads to the birth of “Poko Priest” class.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 891
The 100th anniversary of the birth of the Majin race.
    In celebration of the 100th anniversary, a reconstruction of Buu’s house. the "Majin Buu Memorial", is built.

    Due to a popular belief that Mr. Satan should be reevaluated, “The Legend of Satan” was screened again. With the use of the newest CGI techniques, even more exciting action scenes were added. As a result, a “Satan-style” branch reemerges from the “Pan Fighting Network”.

    The world adopts a new child-rearing policy: “Troublemaker Education", wherein children are removed from the loving care of their parents and live independently in nature. “Kokkara Village” and “Pear Village” are established.

    Dende advocates this policy to the Earth’s King as a way of finding a “savior”.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 988
    Kinoko Rocks suffers from a massive felling by Paella’s gang. (They cut down the stone mushrooms.)

    The world’s peace deteriorates; villainous organizations emerge as a result of the turmoil surrounding the monstrous wild animals and demonic beasts roaming the Earth.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

    “Popo Stones”: With the future of those in training in mind, Dende requests help from Uranai Baba to install these stones in every region. They allow people to return to the area in which the stone is located after they faint during battle. If one wishes upon a Popo Stone, it will automatically summon their body to it before they die.

The Tenkaichi Budokai allows the use of weapons and armor in the "Ultimate Fighting" division.
    Thanks to Mister Satan, interest in the Tenkaichi Budokai is renewed and it rises in popularity again. Champion Morgan’s fight against 100 robots stirred discussion. Engineers rallied, claiming "robots are not that weak!" The Tenkaichi Budokai finally adds an “Ultimate Fighting” division, where participants can utilize weapons, armor and robots.

    Returning from his investigation, Piccolo informs Dende and company about Mira posing a threat to Earth. However, he realizes that at this time, no warrior who could face this threat exists.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

In hopes that a savior would appear among the Earthlings, Dende reactivates the Dragon Balls.
    Dende creates multiple sets of Dragon Balls, weaker than the originals, hoping that the young warriors will benefit from competing over them. The presence of multiple sets allows for warriors of diverse skill levels to have a realistic hope of gathering all seven. Afraid of them being exploited, Dende limits their power, restricting the wishes that can be made.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]

AGE 1000
    Many "new warriors” have emerged from the Earthling, Namekian, and Majin races. They continue to set out on adventures and undergo training in order to oppose the various threats facing the Earth.

I know, right? Just about all of this stuff is great, and too amazing to be wasted on just the game. I say 'wasted' not because I think the game is lowly or anything, but...this game just isn't hitting the big time, it hasn't even made it to Japan officially yet has it? I don't want to see this storyline just abandoned to a game that a majority of fans aren't ever going to get to play.

Great job on this, TheDevilsCorpse, I don't know how much of it is new to this version and how much of it I'm just forgetting, but this is great.

Real great stuff! I really like the part where Tien and the others dress up in saiyaman like costumes. That would be so great to see.

Awesome stuff. Should we expect the Back-story as well?

AGE 826
The theme park “Booby World” opens in South City. The majority of the staff consists of Majins.

Booby World’s owner is the millionaire Mister Bii-- the blind boy who Majin Buu healed in the past.

Just as he had received help from Buu in the past, he believed that it was his time to return the favor to everyone and leaves Mini-star Buu in charge of the production of the theme park. This was done in hopes that the Majin race's power to bring people joy would manifest once again.

Booby World's construction begins; with “tasty” and “fun” as the themes, the park is divided into the “Tasty Zone” and “Fun Zone”. Many Majin are hired as employees and work on honing their skills.
Among them, those who exhibit significant skills are known as “Dai-Majin”.

I say 'wasted' not because I think the game is lowly or anything, but...this game just isn't hitting the big time, it hasn't even made it to Japan officially yet has it? I don't want to see this storyline just abandoned to a game that a majority of fans aren't ever going to get to play.

Nope, just Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong. I know a lot of people complain because parts were crafted to fit the game, but I still like it all and I agree it's a waste if it just stays "lost" like this.

...we still don't know what's gonna happen in Battle of Gods with Pilaf, this could all fit together oh-so-snuggly.

There are some issues if it fits in at that time, namely Pan should already be born (and possibly Bra depending on which year they go with). But I guess the little girls could be with a nanny during the events instead of with their mothers, assuming the movie does fit and doesn't contradict anything else. xD

We'll see. She got part of it translated, most of the new stuff we don't know, but college is starting again. So, it might take longer than all of us, her included, would like for everything because of the courses she's tackling. :/

That I did. Proof-reading everything is a pain, every time I think I have it all fixed, I find another error. I decided I'd let you guys do that work. xD

I've never been in love with the Namekians, but between Dende, Piccolo, and "black Namekian Naraku" starting a "civil war," you've got a movie or special or mini-series comic drawn by Ooishi/Toyble right there.

Great work. The difference between Tenshinhan and Kuririn's training is still my favorite part. Love the new Dragon Sentai stuff too.

An OVA starring the Namekians in that situation would be... glooorioussss.

Awesome stuff, been waiting for this for ages :D

There are a couple of entries that I notice are missing, when did the Yadratians get to Earth and why? Wasn't there an entry about Miira actually hailing from the 2000's?

And will you be including time quests?

Edit:
So I was researching the past timelines and realized that the dates relating to Yadratians are inconclusive and most seem to be relating to Namekians. The only remaining one is that one about the meteors...

    Age 800s: Planet Yardrat is destroyed, and its remains fall to Earth as meteors.
    Age 853: The people of Planet Yardrat establish a city on Earth.
    Age 900: The people of Planet Yardrat are put in charge of developing a time machine.

Edit: About the time quests, check it out! This motherfucker has already done most of the work, at least for the earlier ones:

I have no plans to include the various game missions/dungeons (UDs, TLQs, TMQs, etc.). This thread is only for the stuff before the events of the game, and then only the ones that can be properly sourced. I already provided detailed information for the TMQ's in the previous DBO timeline topic anyway, and it still stands.

I went back and looked through the huge DBO topic and stuff on various other forums for the game. The information about the Yardratians arriving on Earth stems from the poor video quality of the history book in the first game trailer, where they were confused for the blurry Engrish on the Namekian's entry, as a good portion of the stuff that was "deciphered" for that initial timeline was... inaccurate to say the least. The Meteor entry isn't able to be deciphered completely (and probably isn't about the Yardratians anyway), as I showed before the timeline.

Also, this is some bad news here... We also went back and dredged through Korean announcements of the game, and some of the subsequent interviews that were said to contain the information about Miira being and artificial beaing created in Makai, originating from the year 2000, etc. Well, we found nothing for that stuff. Most of the interviews seemed to have been translated via Google, which botched up a lot of information. So unless we missed something (which is entirely possible due to how poorly documented this game is), it seems we've been misled for a while now.

Here is a bit of a tidbit for you guys in exchange though. Apparently the DBO guidebook's "chronicle" section has this to say about him:
"미라의 정체는 미래의 지구인이라고"
Miira's identity is an Earthling from the future!

AGE 801
Son Goku disappears
    Realizing his death is imminent, Goku, who wanted to settle their rivalry, left the Earth with Vegeta. Years later, a supernova explosion was detected; perhaps caused by Son Goku and Vegeta’s battle.
    [Ref: From the DBO timeline.]


So it's definitely Goku who initiates it. Interesting. I can only imagine the inner conflict/turmoil Vegeta went through after being approached by him about this. X3 There's a lot of complications involved in that; Vegeta's family still being alive at this point in the story for starters.
Also agreeing on the theory that going ssj3 while alive messed Goku's lifespan up considering the age his body would be in 801.

Wah. That is certainly interesting.

Well that's fairly disappointing. He's basically an evil Trunks then. Though, it is nice to have a human bad guy again...hmm.

Assuming he's a human Earthling anyway, and not something different like the animal-headed people and so on.

My thanks to you and your friend for your hard work. It's great to finally have a full translation done by someone who actually knows Korean. And it's nice to know I wasn't too far off with my Google-reliant translation. This will also help with the process of making my giant super everything and the kitchen sink timeline a part of Kanzenshuu, since I wasn't going to let it go up without more confirmation for the DBO stuff.

Miira's identity is an Earthling from the future!

Speaking of Google translations, using Google to translate this from Korean to Japanese yields:
"ミイラの正体は未来の地球人と"

"Miira's identity is an Earthling from the future". Almost perfect except for an extraneous と at the end.

Meanwhile, Google translating it from Korean to English gets you:
"Mummy's identity is the future of the district."

...Yeah...

(Still, interesting that "Miira" apparently means "mummy" in Korean as well as Japanese.)

And translating it from Korean to Japanese, then Japanese to English gets you:
"Mummy's identity and future earthlings "


Translating from Korean to Chinese (because...uh, because):
“木乃伊的身份是未来的小区。"

"Mummy's identity is a district of the future."

So, it seems like the Korean word for "Earthling" must be close to the word for "district".
