** 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.

* 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

* MisaimedFandom: The ending of the book and movie ends with [[spoiler:Wanda getting her own body and being able to finally be with Ian. Multiple reviewers make a point that Wanda's new body is relatively attractive, which makes the relationship with Ian and Wanda more based off physical appearances rather than genuine loving.]]

** 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?
