    Subject: Re: i think someone needs to TELL ME SOMETHING!
    Date: Oct 1, 2003
    Sender: DarkkonPrevious | Next

    Ok i watched this show with English subtitles, so my explanation is purely based on what the subtitles said.

    1. Beginning of show: Kid went into Su Yeon's butcher house, got caught, and Su Yeon grabbed one of his unique buttons while trying to catch him, but he fell to his death anyway.

    2. Detective came to crime scene, took the other button. Since this is a set, the fact that Su Yeon has the other button shows she was at the house, and therefore, either was the murderer or an accomplice.

    3. The majority of the plot are as what is stated: Sung Min is the childhood tomboy, her lesbian lover being Sung Min, they were accomplices in crime, etc.

    4. The scary part: Back at the house where the painting and floating body was. Notice the painting shows a woman in water? That's because the body in the water IS a woman. And taking a closer look, the face shown in the painting is of a different shade of colour compared to the body? I think it signifies exactly that:the murderer went through surgery to look like Su Yeon; the floating body IS the original Su Yeon!

    5. Why the photo? I think the murderer is the one who took the picture. That explains why they need to kill the rest of the men (other than the possibly hatred for men) who were all ex-boyfriends of Su Yeon: Because they all know who the murderer is should Su Yeon's body be found.

    6. So who's the murderer? You'll never know! From the subtitles, the last scene of Su Yeon (clone) in the plane, the guy sitted next to her asked her if it was her first time to Paris, and she answered 'Yes', meaning she can't be the real Su Yeon who went to France for years. My guess is that she might be a sister of Sung Min (in a forgettable scene a detective colleague told the starring detective that the owner of the burnt down house had 6 daughters, the youngest being Sung Min, so i guess it might be any of Sung Min's 5 elder sisters. Explains why Sung Min wanted to protect her too).

    i think someone needs to TELL ME SOMETHING!

    I have just finished watching TELL ME SOMETHING and I have spent the last 2 hours looking up info on this movie to figure out what the heck happened! soo frustrating!! but from what ppl have posted and from my own guesses, i'm going to say that su yeon is the killer and sung min was her accomplice...they were both lovers and old childhood neighbors. sung min knew that su yeon was being raped by her dad, so she helped her kill him. he is the first victim, and also the body that floats in the shower at the end of the movie. i think that sung min was really in love with su yeon, but so yeon didn't feel as strongly as sung min did--so su yeon used sung min as an accomplice in the murders under the farce of being sung min's lover. the reason that sung min splatters the blood all over the shower stall and wants to meet su yeon at the media store to kill her is to keep people believing that she (sung min) is the killer. she wants to kill su yeon b/c this keeps su yeon as an innocent b/c she loved her so much. and also i think there is some anger on sung min's part b/c she might have realized that su yeon is using her as a murder accomplice and doesn't really love her. but then what really confuses me is WHAT DOES THAT KID FALLING OUT THE OF WINDOW HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING? WHATS THE DEAL WITH THE BUTTONS? WHAT DID SUNG MIN'S CAR PICTURE AND TICKET HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING? AND WHY DID THAT HAPPY PICTURE OF SU YEON, SUNG MIN, AND ALL THOSE MURDERED GUYS TIP OH OFF TO THE TRUTH? anyone have any answers?!?!
