Trivia: Old Boy
  • Lost in Translation - Played in two ways. When Oh Dae-Su is released from his prison, he talks to the gang of kids and they act like they don't understand him. The movie was set in a time period when the Korean language had drastically changed over those fifteen years and Oh Dae-Su is speaking a very different dialect than the modern one. Unfortunately, this was lost in the English subtitles.
