    Subject: I think I've got some clues
    Date: Jan 2, 2003
    Sender: LeoPrevious | Next

    The two girls have been working together to murder those 4 victims. And the medicial student killed the detective while So-Yeon is staying with the liutenant. And finally when the police is suspecting the medical student, she wants to put all the blames on So-Yeon. She mentioned to the police before that So-Yeon has tendency of committing suicide. So this time she spill the blood all over their room (as So-Yeon is going back to stay with her), and plan to kill So-Yeon there (under the cover of suicide) and clean herself. And So-Yeon of course senses the danger too, so she acts first to kill the medical student (under the cover of self-defense).

    The photo might give the police some clues that the two girls have been knowing and staying with each other for long, while So-Yeon has been lying to the police that the "boy" has been dead in the fire accident long time ago.

    Why the two girls murder those men? The logical explanation is that after the dark tragedy in their youth, they hate men (at least those men that have sexual relations with So-Yeon, including her own father). I don't think that So-Yeon kills only to conceal the secret that she has been sexually abused by her father, as she told that secret to the police officier but without killing him (as they have no sexual relationship yet).

    what the?!?

    I thought i had the movie figured out until the final plot twist. But the most confusing thing to me is the picture found by detective Cho depicting the 4 slayed boyfriends along with Suyeon and her roomate. Somehow this reveiled everything to him but not to me. why are they all together? who took the picture? why are they all holding the bottle of fish that suyeon gave cho before she left? there is so many theories that can be created from the tiny clues left throughout the film. I enjoy a "thinker" film but not an impossible one. if anyone has any insite please email me. thanks.
