Is the Korean written on the side of this van in an episode of The Office referring to some sort of Church? Or, what is it saying?enter image description here credit: Office

Oddly, we already have this question on the SE network:


They've translated it as "Hallelujah Church of Scranton", although the word-for-word translation is "Scranton Hallelujah Church".

Scranton = 스크랜턴
Hallelujah= 할렐루야
Church = 교회 (only partially visible in the picture)

The Korean alphabet is phonetic, and the first two words are just transliterations of the English (or Hebrew, in the second case). '교회' is the normal Korean word for church.
