* PeacefulInDeath: Played straight in a deleted scene. [[spoiler:After Su-yeon's ghost briefly visits Su-mi in her hospital room, finally getting her to respond, she returns to her former room to (presumably) kill Eun-ju in vengeance. Afterwards, Su-mi lies back in her bed with a small smile on her face. The alternate ending continues, showing a discarded and nearly empty pill bottle on the floor, and a brief shot of a lifeless Su-mi, who committed suicide, presumably to finally reunite with her mother and sister.]]

* JourneyToFindOneself: Su-mi. [[spoiler:After all of the trauma that she's been through following her brief return to her house, it's clear that she needs to find some kind of peace in her life after the death of her mother and sister, if she hopes to get better. Su-yeon's ghost is heard whistling in her room, implying that she will always be with her, followed by Su-yeon returning to her former room to (presumably) kill Eun-ju. It then cuts to Su-mi lying back in her bed with a small smile on her face, having finally found some form of peace.]]

* Forgiven,ButNotForgotten: Averted. [[spoiler:When Su-mi is readmitted into the hospital after her second mental breakdown, Eun-ju attempts to reconcile her relationship with her (which was dysfunctional to put it lightly) and finally make peace, by promising to visit her as often as she can. Su-mi completely rebuffs her advances, making it quite clear that not only will she never forgot about what happened to Su-yeon and her implied affair with Moo-hyeon, but it's obvious that she will never forgive her for it.]]

* MyGod,WhatHaveIDone?: Su-mi and Eun-ju.
** [[spoiler:Su-mi is quite clearly guilt ridden when she realizes that she inadvertently caused her sister's death by giving in to her rage and insulting Eun-ju. It's what eventually lead to her mental breakdown. You can hardly blame her even though she is completely innocent and had no way of knowing that her mother was dead and that her sister is dying literally in the next room from where she's standing.]]
** [[spoiler:When we finally meet the real Eun-ju in the third act, it's quite apparent that she feels immense guilt for letting Su-yeon die instead of helping her, once she sees how much it affected [[Didn'tThinkThisThrough Su-mi and Moo-hyeon emotionally]] but in her case, this guilt is well deserved.]]

* DramaticIrony: In the epilogue flashback, Eun-ju warns Su-mi that she "might regret this moment". Su-mi, very much unaware that [[spoiler:her mother is dead and Su-yeon is dying]], sneers back that [[RockBottom she cannot imagine anything worse TemptingFate than being right there in Eun-ju's presence]].

* DisproportionateRetribution: It is eventually revealed that [[spoiler: Eun-ju left Su-yeon to die under the wardrobe because of a confrontation she had with Su-mi, who was resentful of her due to [[YourCheatingHeart her affair with her father]]. It is also worth noting that Eun-ju [[Didn'tThinkThisThrough didn't quite think about how it also may have affected Moo-hyeon as well,]] by leaving her for dead.]]

** On a related note, if one believes that [[spoiler:Eun-ju is ultimately killed by Su-yeon's ghost in the end, and if one accepts the alternate ending where Su-mi commits suicide by overdosing on medication as canon, then that means that Moo-hyeon is all alone now with his entire family dead.]] Sure, he may have [[spoiler:indirectly caused the film's events when he [[YourCheatingHeart had an affair on his]] [[Jerkass terminally ill wife]] but starting a chain of events where it leads to his whole family dead? He had no way of knowing that would happen, and no one deserves such a cruel fate.]]
