** In ''The Uninvited'', [[spoiler:Rachel (the Eun-ju equivalent) ''was'' around the whole film. The reason Anna (Su-mi) intially cracked was that she witnessed her father cheating on her mother with Rachel and decided to burn the house down. A trail of gasoline and a knocked-over candle result in her mother and Alex (Su-yeon) burning alive in the second house before Anna can reach the main house. Guilt drives her insane.]]



** ''The Uninvited'' had a suitably freaky one as well [[spoiler: and it's confirmed to ''be'' the girls' mother.]]

** And, possibly, [[spoiler: the reveal of Su-mi's psychosis might mean that Eun-ju didn't really allow Su-yeon to die, as it was most likely Su-mi or her budding Eun-ju split personality who did it, and her mental illness and/or guilt makes her rationalize the events differently as a [[SanitySlippage futile attempt]] to cope]].

This ''may'' be supported by the intense gaze of the father and doctors to Eun-ju before she sees Su-mi when she is being committed for the second time. If this is the angle the viewer chooses to take, it can lead to another interpretation of the ending scene (of the supposed ghost attack): The catatonic state seen at the first scene is because the Su-mi persona is "locked" in a white room, since she can't face the reality. The Su-yeon persona will shatter and disappear, for she can only exist while the Su-mi persona believes in it. The Eun-ju persona (which wanted to be the dominating one) was then destroyed by the "ghost" of Su-yeon (the scene played not in reality, but in the mind plane of the girl)]].

* FauxHorrorFilm: Arguably, unless you take into account the supernatural elements that may or may not be actually happening. [[spoiler: [[RealAfterAll The last minute twist]] being a terrifying subversion of the trope.]]
** And there's also the fact that [[SanitySlippage growing progressively less sane]] until your delusions become your reality [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness is a horror trope all its own]].

[[ForeignRemake An American remake]] titled ''Film/TheUninvited'' was released in 2009 not to be confused with a completely different Korean horror film from 2003 also titled ''The Uninvited'', nor the 1944 American film of that name.
