    You know what, 6 years later...and my explanation kind of makes no sense haha. Rewatched the film again recently and while perhaps Kim the stalker had something to do with the preservative he had nothing to do with the murders.

    A body made of cut-up body parts facing a painting of the woman who probably killed all those men. I still wonder why these guys...Did they reminds her of dad? Did the detective get a reprieve when he trusted her? Fascinating movie,really.

    Response to this comment:
    close, but still not getting it...

    ok, my sister and I watched this movie with the greatest confusion and after reading all the comments and interesting theories we're still not ready to move on with our lives...
    About the photo: we think that the thing that Cho saw in the corner of the photo is a reflection from glass, and since there are no windows in that wall, the only obvious conclusion must be that there is a massive, secret aquarium containing a sewn together, headless dead guy! (Those Korean police guys are quite clever).
    Even though some of the theories explain something there are still a few unanswered questions...
    - what is it with that painting
    - why does Seungmin splatter donor blood all over the place?
    - and most important: WHY IS IT RAINING ON THE CAR WHEN THEY'RE PARKED IN THE INDOOR CARPARK???

    Apart from the fact that we had no idea what was going on, we quite liked the movie, so please keep the theories coming - we're not sure we'll stop thinking about this movie before the director actually gives a public explanation...
