** 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.

* 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

--->'''Hee-bong''' ''(to Nam-il and Nam-joo, who have already fallen asleep from the lecture)'': I really need to say this to you. Be as nice to Gang-du as you can. Don't scold him, okay?

** Gang-du. Loses his daughter, blamed by his siblings, and targeted for carrying an imaginary virus... even his [[spoiler:victory over the creature costs him something big.]] Is it any wonder he cries every 20 onscreen minutes?
