    Subject: close, but still not getting it...
    Date: Aug 19, 2004
    Sender: confusedPrevious | Next

    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...

    My explanation and it works.

    *MAJOR SPOILERS*


    I'm posting this at many places because I love my explanation.

    There are three killers. The person who killed the first three men is Kim the stalker guy. He ordered the conservant on the Internet then proceeded to kill the three men. Su-Yeon was with him for the second murder. The boy who was a thief climbed up the window but Su-Yeon stopped him. She wasn't dressed up in surgical garb because Kim did the dicing. Later, the big cop brings the other kid to that appartement and the little boy pick the lock showing that both were thieves.

    After then, the girls fearing that Kim may talk now that's he's a suspect kill him. Su-Yeon did because there were traces of fusain on the body and she used these to draw.

    Both Kim and her studied anatomy in France.

    After that since all the men are dead and Kim too they decide to stop now. Seungmin goes to pick up all the stuff at app 202 but sees the cop there so she kills him. That same night the radar picks up her car since she was speeding after the killing.

    After she sees the cops in the hospital she frames herself since she loves Su-Yeon and don't want her to get arrested but ends up getting killed.

    The detective sees the pictures of all the men with Su-Yeon and Seungmin Oh in front of the wall where they hid the father's corpse so he races there.

    Kim loved Su-Yeon and got used by her. Seungmin loved Su-Yeon and got used and the same thing happened to Cho.
