** The scene where the family [[ImagineSpot imagines]] Hyun-seo is with them and they all feed herher.



** After the doctors in the gymnasium arrest Gang-du, who confessed to having the creature's blood sprayed on his face, Hee-bong is determined not to leave his son's side, even when he's zipped up inside a bag.



* SurprisinglySimilarCharacters: Park Gang-du and Park Dong-jin from ''Film/SympathyforMrVengeance''. Both men have had their wives leave them and are dysfunctional single parents having to raise their daughters by themselves. Both have had their daughters taken away from them and have gone out of their way to avenge them. The difference between them is, Dong-jin is terribly lost with his daughter gone, and he has no one else to go to for comfort, and since his adversaries are human, his actions paint him as no better than her kidnappers. What's more, Dong-jin is rich and LonelyAtTheTop. Gang-du, on the other hand, is poor and working class, [[spoiler: makes up for the death of his daughter by raising the orphan boy she protected]], has his father and siblings as emotional support, despite how much his brother and sister look down on him, and the fact that his enemy is a simple predator makes his actions much more heroic. Also, both are played by Song Kang-ho

* PuritySue: Wanderer; granted, she's not as egregious an example as [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Bella]], but still. She's honest, sweet-natured, and gentle to a fault, and toward the end she has quite a circle of admirers amongst the human clan. Those who do not admire her either don't know her, or, like Maggie and Sharon, are described as shrewish and hateful. At the end, she even ''looks'' the part, and Doc comes dangerously close to pronouncing her TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth.
** To be fair, though, the story is written from a first-person perspective. [[FridgeBrilliance Don't we all perceive people who are nice to us as better and more worthy of attention than people who aren't, regardless of circumstances?]]
** Which is why Melanie's perspective, for most of the story, is painfully overlooked. Maggie and Sharon are Melanie's aunt and cousin - maybe not as close family-wise as her brother, and definitely weird in some ways, but still family nonetheless. She knows much better than Wanda about their lives and personalities, and why they are bitter and hateful toward Souls. At the very least, she could have spoken up for them when Wanda made biased judgments about them. But Melanie hardly ever speaks up at all - and only when Jared is somehow involved. When somebody doesn't stick up for their own family in favor of the main character's point of view, there's a bit more than first-person bias going on.

Added DiffLines:

** Counts as a Heartwarming moment, but the desperate pleas of Hee-bong for Nam-il and Nam-joo to respect Gang-du more is quite heartbreaking.
** On that note, Gang-du's backstory. He used to seem really smart as a child, so smart that people would as him for directions, but the poor motherless boy, with a busy father, had to fend for himself and suffered from a lack of nutrition, which Hee-bong explains as to why Gang-du is slow-witted and falls asleep all the time.

* FunnyMoments:
** It ends up in tragedy, but the all too human moment of a normal man thrust into the thick of danger... who promptly realizes he miscounted just how many shotgun shells remain in his gun.
** Se-joo asks Hyun-seo what she'd want to drink..
-->"Beer. A cold beer."
** The chase scene, due to its [[SoundtrackDissonance unfitting]] orchestral BGM.
*** When the gang gets away in their getaway car, [[OhCrap they realize that Nam-joo isn't in the car]]. They then find her walking towards the car at a horrendously slow pace.
** During the monster's first attack, we see a girl playing with a bobby pin [[SoundtrackDissonance listening to orchestral music on her headphones]] completely oblivious to the mayhem around her. When someone runs by, she turns around only to promptly get taken out by the monster.
** The Park family's mourning session over Hyun-seo turns into an over-the-top farce when they start wrestling each other and end up writhing on the ground, drawing everyone's attention.
** While the Park family is sheltering in the gymnasium, Gang-du scratches his genitals in his sleep.
** The first time Gang-du wields a sign is both funny and awe-inspiring.
** A black comedy moment; a bunch of fleeing citizens run into a food trailer to hide from the monster, and lock out a woman who is seconds too late. The monster then barrels towards them... only to run right past the woman and smash straight into the food trailer. LaserGuidedKarma indeed.
** A moment that's funny and poignant at the same time: On the family's way to find Hyun-seo and escape the doctors, Gang-du gets out of the van, and he starts running into the fumes as it drives in front of him. Hee-bong explains that he's trying to disinfect himself so he doesn't pass tje virus to anyone, especially not Hyun-seo when he finds her.
** The way everyone cowers on the floor after Gang-du makes his second break out of quarantine, and threatens to spread the virus to everyone. The moment he squirts a syringe full of his blood the doctors duck for cover.
