The film is inspired by a Joseon Dynasty folktale entitled ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Janghwa_Hongryeon_jeon Janghwa Hongryeon jeon]]'', which has been adapted to film several times. [[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.

The ghost who attacks Eun-ju is not real. Notice in this scene that the wardrobe is in Su-yeon's room. It shouldn't be there. It is downstairs now in the same room as the medicine cabinet. It really is downstairs, as the father is seen viewing it after Su-mi's stabs her hand. He must have moved it from her room after the accident.
* BolivianArmyEnding / DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Su-mi, whose condition has only got worse ever since coming home, is committed once again to a psychiatric hospital, and it is uncertain when or if she will get better. Also, the presence of a ghost turns out to be RealAfterAll and attacks Eun-ju, with the latter's ultimate fate unclear.]]

** During the first dinner, Eun-ju explains how the uncle will come over for a visit [[spoiler: to see the girls. The father freezes for a second, then finishes eating and leaves without saying anything to that.]]

* TheReveal: Three, and they're all equally as unexpected and shocking as each other. The first is when it is revealed that [[spoiler:Su-yeon has actually been dead all along, having died prior to the events of the film, and her presence is most likely a figment of Su-mi's imagination]] (although it can also be interpreted that [[spoiler:her presence is a non-malevolent ghost who doesn't even realise that she's dead]], but that depends on how you view the film). The second is when it is revealed that [[spoiler:Su-mi was imagining herself to be Eun-ju, due to a severe case of multiple personality disorder, and Eun-ju was never in the house throughout the events of the film to begin with - the real Eun-ju only shows up at the end, to help return Su-mi to the mental institution]]. Third, [[spoiler: Eun-ju turns out to have knowingly allowed Su-yeon to die before marrying her father]]. And fourth, [[spoiler: the reveal of Su-mi's psychosis essentially means 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]]. Oh, and let's not forget that [[spoiler: [[RealAfterAll there actually IS a ghost in the house]], though exactly how much influence it had on events prior to its literal last-minute appearance is unclear]].
