Answer (답):

One’s plan or scheme has been discovered and/or thwarted; one’s game, trick, or deception is at an end. A variant of the much more common phrase “the jig is up.“

Sample sentence (샘플 문장):

 Your jig is up, Senator Marten! Your tax evasion has been found out, and the police are here to escort you to prison.
