대박 나다 (be in explosive demand)

대박 나다 (be in explosive demand) 내용이 아주 좋고 (superb) 영어와 무관한 (have little/nothing to do with ~) 독자들에게도 실제적인 도움이 많이 돼서 대박 나겠네요.

On belatedly hearing that my mentor professor at Soongsil University had passed away, I was overwhelmed with a sense of guilt. For the last few years of his life I have failed to do what I had done: every New Year’s Day saw me making a call to him, who retired to his home in California, and asking after him. I had been so popular with students at Chonnam National University that there each semester my two classes of ‘NYT Editorials—English Composition and Discussion’ and ‘English Composition’ for English majors always filled up shortly after registration began, overflowing with a lot of students on waiting lists.
