Sometimes I wish I didn't know the language so well. If I didn't I wouldn't object to someone saying "less than a fraction" on the radio yesterday, and I wouldn't have been troubled by Oldboy's big quote "Even though I'm no worse than a beast - don't I, too, have the right to live?".

Now in Korean, I am sure this made sense, but whoever translated it, obviously missed something.
