Comic relief for the hard violence comes from Oh Daesu's buffoonery and his scientific pursuit of revenge. The light tone is helped by crosscuts of frozen tableaus, staring at the camera, punchline narration and voice overs slapped onto still faces and other characters, joking at Oh Daesu's expense.

What's that smell?" - Oh Daesu "I said I want something alive." - Mido "Long time no see." Oh Daesu "This is my first time." Mido "Maybe not?" Oh Daesu "But she looks familiar."

I'm sort of a scholar, and my major is you. A scholar studying Oh Daesu, an expert on Oh Daesu. Who I am isn't important. Why is important. Think it over. Review your whole lifetime.

- Lee Woojin “Oh Daesu, you see, talks too much.” Oh Daesu “Have you heard this voice before?” Joo Hwan “I don’t know all the 260 names of your women’s husbands” - Oh Daesu “Joo Hwan, did I really talk too much?” Joo Hwan “My friend, I’d like for you to find that criminal among people you’re close to.” - Oh Daesu “You lead a complete stranger to your place. Who are you?” - Oh Daesu “I’m not doing fine, within life in a bigger prison.” - Lee Woojin in Oh Daesu’s voice “Evergreen, who are you? You meant to ask this right? You must find out on your own. Come on, it’s a game. First who? Then, why? If you figure it out come see me anytime. I’ll raise your score. You have until July 5th. Oh no, only five days left. Too short? Hang in there. If you succeed I’ll kill myself and not Mido. That’s right, Mido. I’m going to kill every woman you love until you die.” - Lee Woojin “Wow you are strong Mr. Monster. Yes, you are the very monster I created. But you won’t find out the “why?” if you do this. Fifteen years of being curious would go to waste. So is that okay with you?” - Lee Woojin “Do you seek revenge or do you find the truth? Oh you’re in a tough spot. I have been watching you for fifteen years. I fared well thanks to you. I wasn’t bored or lonely.” - Lee Woojin “Seeking revenge is the best cure for someone who got hurt. Try it. The loss of fifteen years, the pain of losing your wife and child, you can forget all this. Once again, revenge is good for your health.” - Lee Woojin “But… what happens after you’ve revenged yourself? I bet that hidden pain will probably come back again. Are you there Oh Daesu? Oh Daesu, long time no see.” - Lee Woojin “Hasn’t she been tied up for too long? I think you also left the door open.” - Park “You see, they say that people shrivel up because they have an imagination. So do not imagine. You’ll become brave.” - Park “Yes? You know I’m glad you told me about this place. But I haven’t even started. What? Let’s go.” - Oh Daesu “I’m going to cut off your hand, because you touched Mido.” Park “Then what about my tongue?”

- Mr. Han “You should get some rest today.” Lee Woojin “I can’t evensleep, since I am forlorn.” - Lee Woojin “Mr. Han, do you really think Mido has fallen in love with Oh Daesu, already?” - Oh Daesu “Do you worry about the future. Don’t imagine anything.” - Oh Daesu “I feel like thanking all those fifteen years in prison. If I wasn’t there, could Mido have liked me still?” - Mido “You know, maybe he freed you, because he has fun watching you run wild seeking revenge. And never tell you why, so he can toy with you forever.”

- Mido “What shall I pray?” Oh Daesu “Dear Lord, please let me find a younger man next time.” Mido “Please let Lee Woojin, bow next to Oh Daesu and make him beg for forgiveness.” - Oh Daesu “You slept with your sister.” Lee Woojin “… (stares at Mr. Han)… Let’s go up and talk.” - Oh Daesu “You slept with your sister.” Lee Woojin “I feel so refreshed.” Oh Daesu “You slept with your sister, and I started the rumours, that’s why your sister died.” - Lee Woojin “Looking through the mirror reminds me of that day, doesn’t it?” Oh Daesu “Erasing my memory and telling me to find the truth was unfair. I won, so die like you promised.” Lee Woojin “You think you forgot that day because you were hypnotized? Are you sure? Do you know the real reason why you can’t remember? Let me tell you. You just, forgot.” - Lee Woojin “Isn’t it funny? One word gets you pregnant, one word gets you in love.” - Lee Woojin “Your gravest mistake wasn’t failing to find the answer. You can’t find the right answer if you ask the wrong questions. It’s not “Why did Lee Woojin imprison me?” It’s “Why did he release me?” Once again, why did Lee Woojin release Oh Daesu after fifteen years?”

- Oh Daesu “I beg you, please don’t tell Mido. What has she done wrong? You know it was all my fault. I have committed a terrible sin to your sister. And I was very wrong to you. I’m really sorry. So what I am saying is, so please leave Mido alone, okay? If Mido finds out the truth, you asshole, I’ll rip your whole body apart and no one will be able to find your body anywhere. Why? Because I’m going to chew it all down. Woojin! Woojin, I made a mistake. Please forget what I said. Sir! Boss! Woojin! We’re Evergreen Old Boys. Remember? With the energy from a green pine tree the Great Sangnok High… I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll do anything. I beg you. Woojin, if you want me to be a dog, I will! I’m Woojin’s dog from now on! I’m your puppy! Woof woof woof woof. Look, I’m wagging my tail. I’m a dog. I’ll guard the house. I’ll be your slave dog.” - Lee Woojin “Now, what joy will I live for?” - Lee Woojin “My sister and I loved each other, even though we knew everything. Could it be the same for you two?” - Mido “I love you Oh Daesu.”
