A 2006 South Korean film by Creator/ParkChanWook, starring Su-jeong Lim and [[KoreanPopMusic pop sensation]] [[Series/TheColbertReport RAAAAAAIIIINNNN!]]

Best described as "a RomanticComedy that takes place in a mental institution and features a love story between a girl who believes she's a cyborg and a boy who believes he can steal other people's souls."

[[StunnedSilence ......]]

Sounds about right!

While critically acclaimed, the film had disappointing sales and box office numbers, possibly due to how [[LighterAndSofter completely different it is from the director's other works]].

* BerserkButton: Don't talk about mothers in front of Il-soon.
* BetaCouple: Kyu-suk and Eun-young.
* BungledSuicide: The very opening scene (although it wasn't actually intentional).
* CharacterTics: Considering their mental state, it's understandable the characters all have them.
** Young-goon talks to electric objects wearing dentures and attempts to shake hands with people (who she actually wants to shoot).
** Il-soon wears masks based on other people's faces, hops around like a rabbit and brushes his teeth when upset.
** One male patient walks backwards, says redundant and meaningless things and considers everything his fault.
** Eun-young dresses like Literature/{{Heidi}}, never looks away from her mirror, and practices singing.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: '''''All''''' of the patients.

* ConsummateLiar: Sul-mi, one of the patients in the institution, is a mythomaniac.
* CueTheSun: The final shot is of a beautiful sunrise [[spoiler:revealing that Young-goon and Il-soon survived the storm]].
* DidTheyOrDidntThey: It's implied, but never confirmed, that [[spoiler:Young-goon and Il-soon have sex]]. Considering they're both {{cloudcuckoolander}}s, anything could've happened.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The whole Rice Megatron scene.
* ElectricTorture: The shock therapy is portrayed as this. Sul-mi actually loses her memories every time she has it.
* EmotionlessGirl: Young-goon tries to be one.
* FatGirl: Gop-dan, who is the only overweight character around, and one of the most selfish, unsympathetic, and overall [[{{Pride}} vainest]].
* ForceFeeding: Young-goon is subject to this since she will not eat, with realistically horrible results.
* GadgeteerGenius: Mentally unstable or not, Il-soon shows off his creativity and skills, the Rice Megatron being the sum of all this. It's explained that he used to work as a technician.
* GoryDiscretionShot: When Young-goon slits her wrist.
* ImNotHungry: Young-goon refuses to eat, if only because she thinks she's a cyborg, and cyborgs don't ''need'' food.
* InelegantBlubbering: Everyone.
* LackOfEmpathy: Young-goon wants to get rid of her sympathy so she won't feel bad about murdering the doctors.
* LighterAndSofter: Compared to the director's other works.
* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Il-soon eventually becomes this for Young-goon.
* ManInWhite[=/=]WomanInWhite: Il-soon and Young-goon primarily, but virtually everyone wears white.
* MeaningfulEcho: "Just give up hope, and stay strong."
** "Why would a girl like you want to die? We must carry on living through thick and thin."
* MeetCute: As cute as you're gonna get at a mental hospital.
* MissingMom: Il-soon's mother not only abandoned them when he was 15, she also [[FelonyMisdemeanor took the whole family set of electric toothbrushes]].
* MyCard: Il-soon gives Young-goon a very convincing one he made himself, as a warranty for life.
* NoPeriodsPeriod: Averted. Young-goon tells her mother she's a cyborg, and her mother asks her if she's feeling ill because she missed a period.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Most of the patients display this.
* OneHeadTaller: Il-soon and Young-goon. This is played up during [[spoiler:their first kiss]], where they both try and solve the height difference.
* OnlySaneMan: The doctors, quite literally.
* ParentalNeglect: Young-goon's mother is too busy/ashamed to seek help for her, and Il-soon's parents ignored him so much he thought he could turn invisible.
** RaisedByGrandparents: Young-goon's mother states that her mother (Young-goon's granny) raised her while talking to the doctor in the beginning of the movie, explaining Young-goon's love for her granny.
* ReadingLips: Il-soon is shown to be quite good at this when interpreting a distraught Young-goon. [[ChekhovsSkill It comes in handy later]].
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Young-goon goes on an imaginary one against the "white-coats" for incarcerating her and her grandma. It may not be real but it's [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill pretty disturbing]] while it lasts.
* RuleOfFunny: See WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief below.
* ShirtlessScene: It's ''Rain!'' Would be a complete waste not to let him take his shirt off at least once.
* TheSociopath: Il-soon, who has [[FunnySchizophrenia schizophrenia]] and [[StickyFingers kleptomania]]. That is, until he [[spoiler:steals Young-goon's sympathy]]...
* SoundtrackDissonance: A light hearted waltz plays during Young-goon's bloody killing spree.
* StepfordSmiler: Doctor Seul-ki may be this. It's understandable that working in a mental hospital would take its toll on her.
* SurrealHumor
* TakeOffYourClothes: When Il-soon [[spoiler:pretends to install a device]] in Young-goon's back, he asks her to do this. Subverted as he's the only one who realises how awkward the request sounds.
* TinCanTelephone: Il-soon uses one to communicate with Young-goon while in solitary confinement. He then sings her a song about YodelLand.
* ToplessnessFromTheBack: Played with. When Young-goon takes her top off in front of Il-soon you'd certainly expect fanservice, however instead we get to see how incredibly thin she has become. Il-soon is clearly distressed by this, although he still caresses her back for good measure.
* TroubledFetalPosition
* UnusualEuphemism:
-->'''Young-goon:''' Anyway, let's just take off our wet socks.
-->'''Il-soon:''' More than our socks are wet...
* UnusualEyebrows: Young-goon's eyebrows are white for some reason.
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Young-goon is a cyborg, so she convinces herself she can't feel love and has difficulty returning Il-soon's feelings, although it's obvious she reciprocates.
* WhyAmITicking: Granny tells Young-goon that she is not a cyborg but [[spoiler:a nuke bomb, and her purpose it to blow up the world]]. Young-goon tries to go through with it.
* WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief: The director has openly admitted that the mental institution as depicted in the film is deliberately the antithesis of what a real one is like. This was done for narrative purposes.
