film genre meme: [1/5] mystery/thriller
oldboy (2003)

You really are the very monster I created, aren’t you? But you won’t find out the “why” of this if you kill me. Fifteen years of being curious would go to waste.

"Everyone make mistakes. But if you committed a sin, you have to make an atonement for that sin. Atonement, do you know what that means? Big Atonement for big sins. Small Atonement for small sins."

Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (친절한 금자씨)
Park Chan-wook, 2005

A Tale Of Two Sisters: Deleted Scenes

After Su-mi opens her wardrobe and there are dozens of the same clothes, she hears Su-yeon screaming. So she goes to Su-yeons room. You already know this if you watched the film. The day that the accident happened, Su-mi didn’t go to Su-yeons room. Because of this Su-mi hears hallucinatory sounds. The screams. She gets obsessive. That’s why we’ve included this and the mysterious wardrobe. What’s wrong with the wardrobe? She keeps talking about the wardrobe. This is where it gets introduced but was too emphasized in this scene. It was overdone. That’s why it was deleted.  - Kim Ji woon

In a direct reference to the original fairytale of Rose Flower and Red Lotus, Su-mi find a bloody package containing fish entrails in the fridge; a gory package which is clearly an allusion to the skinned dead rat in the original fairytale [x]

A Tale Of Two Sisters: Deleted Ending

After Eun-ju sees Su-yeon’s ghost, this scene follows. This was going to be the ending. It was in the script. Su-yeon’s ghost appears in front of Eun-ju because she also did nothing to save Su-yeon from the accident. Su-mi senses this and commits suicide. The film was suppose to end with Su-mi’s death. It is a sad ending, but too typical. So we deleted it. - Kim Ji Woon
