Translation:In what year?

I agree. I have mistranslated this several times now to things that mean the same thing depending on context, and "In what year?" never comes to mind because that, too, requires a specific context. "What year is that?" or "What year is it" that you are talking about? This one requires the right frame of mind, or sheer memorization, to translate right without some context.
The direct translation without a question would be "In a few years." Apparently when you form it into a question maybe it is asking in which year, but you are implying it's a few years in the future, you're just not sure how many. A native Korean speaker might be able to shed some light on whether this implies "in a few years in the future, but which one?" It's just a possibility.
