Yeong's treatment of Gyoo-nam is physically abusive, but more symbolically characterized like that of a dog to it's master. The first scene of the film opens with Gyoo-nam meeting Yeong in a boiler room. In this scene Yeong puts a dog leash on Gyoo-nam and beats him while referring to him as "bitch" and referring to himself as "master" or "daddy" creating himself in the image of dominance using Gyoo-nam as the image of sub ordinance.
