Our noble heroes follow up something heroic with something stupid, because they're idiots who put too much stock in appearance. The second twist barely even qualifies as a twist at all.

"When I first saw the synopsis I felt greatly pressured, because my character had three personalities including Jang Cheol, Doctor K, and Jang Cheol's mother. The PD advised me to watch some psycho killer movies so I watched up to three or four movies up to the day we started filming. I watched "Memories of Murder" and even "Dexter".
