    Subject: HUH?!?!??!??!??!?!??!
    Date: Oct 6, 2003
    Sender: kATEPrevious | Next

    Umm...okay i'm back and i'm officially even more confused...

    1. that body in the shower at the end is a man's body isn't it? or was that me seeing an imaginary male genital?!!!

    2. where was the HEAD of the body??? does su yeon still have it laying around somewhere???

    3. i understand that there must be some significance of the painting of the woman in the water (ophelia from hamlet committing suicide) b/c they kept showing it and i couldn't really figure out what it meant...but does that necessarily mean the body in the shower is a woman? maybe its just artsy cinemotography? :)

    4. then what happened to su yeon's dad? do we ever find out?

    5. just b/c su yeon said she had never been to france on the plane with that guy doesn't really mean she hadn't been there, right? it could just be that she wanted to start her killing sprees out fresh and wanted to lie about visiting france before...or maybe it does mean she hasn't really been there b/c shes a fake su yeon...i dont know, i am so confused~but then why would this mystery murderer go thru all the trouble of getting plastic surgery to look like su yeon and killing everyone su yeon knows? it seems a little weird...but then again killing a whole bunch of guys and leaving their body parts in black garbage bags is a little weird too...hahaha~

    6. its a cool hypothesis of having the murderer as the oerson who is TAKING the photograph instead of someone IN the photograph. b/c if you think about it...what the heck does a happy photograph with su yeon, sung min and all of su yeon's boyfriends tell detective Oh who the killer is? honestly it tells them nothing, just that they all knew each other beforehand...which i think we all pretty much guessed anyways...

    i have come to the conclusion that there is no conclusion...i am the type of person who needs to know EXACTLY what happens at the end of the movie or else i obsess over it, which i am doing right now...does anyone have the director's address? i gotta figure this out!!!!!! and yes, i am a dork that has too much time on her hands!~ =P

    Response to this comment:
    Re: i think someone needs to TELL ME SOMETHING!

    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).
