혹형

이곳은 특이한 술을 만들어 죄수들에게 준다. 도수가 약한 황주(黃酒)와 요즘의 배갈인 백주(白酒)를 한데 섞은 것. 이 술이 묘하다. 한국식으로 이름하자면 ‘폭탄주’에 해당하는데, 술을 마시면 죄수들은 괜히 히죽거리며 웃는다고 했다. 술을 마신 뒤 그릇을 던져 깨는 관행이 이어져 술집 이름이 그렇게 붙여졌다.

On their way from the prison to the execution ground, prisoners would be taken by a tavern. This tavern would offer them a special drink, a mixture of weak and strong liquors similar to Korea’s poktangju, or “boilermakers,” of today. It is said that after drinking the cocktail, the prisoners smiled for some reason. It was a custom to smash the glass after the drink.

Writing Tip
ⓐ the → their
ⓑ liquor → drink 바로 뒤에, 도수가 약하고 강한 술(liquor)을 섞어 만든 음료를 나타내고 있으므로, 중복을 피하기 위해 ‘drink’로 수정
ⓒ liquor → liquors 본문에서 ‘liquor’가 다양한 술의 종류를 의미하고 있으므로 복수형으로 수정. 참고로 ‘liquor’가 액체로 된 술 자체를 의미할 경우에는 셀 수 없는 명사로 취급
ⓓ prisoners → the prisoners 앞에 언급된 prisoners를 이야기하고 있으므로 the삽입
ⓔ throw and break → smash ‘(던져서) 깨뜨린다’는 의미의 한 단어 ‘smash’로 수정


일전에 미국 관타나모 수용소의 포로 고문 방식이 한국전쟁 때 중국 인민해방군이 사용했던 것이라는 미국 신문의 보도가 나왔다. 고문을 폭로한 기사이기는 하지만 그 방식이 ‘메이드 인 차이나’라는 점을 강조했다. 달리 교재가 필요 없을 텐데. 고문과 혹형은 동·서 구분 없는 과거 유물이다. 아직 사용된다는 것이 불행이다.

A U.S. newspaper reported recently that torture methods used in the U.S. Guantanamo Bay detention camp ⓐwas the same as those used by the People’s Liberation Army of China during the Korean War. The article emphasized that the torture methods were “made in China.” But it is doubtful that they had to refer to another country’s textbook to torture prisoners there. They must have had their own methods. Torture and severe punishment is a legacy from the past ⓑboth in ⓒEast and West. It is unfortunate that they are used today as well.

Torture and severe punishment is a legacy from the past in both the East and the West. It is unfortunate that they are still used today as well.

Writing Tip

ⓐ was → were 주어 ‘methods’가 복수이므로 동사도 복수형 ’were’로 수정
ⓑ both in → in both 자연스러운 어순으로 수정
ⓒ East and West → the East and the West 동양과 서양이라는 특정 문화(지역)를 나타내므로 the삽입
