- Eun-ju: Do know what's really scary? You want to forget something. Totally wipe it off your mind. But you never can. It can't go away, you see. And... and it follows you around like a ghost.
Eun-ju: As much as you hate it, I'm the only one in this world you can call mother, got it?
Eun-ju: There's something strange in this house.
Mi-hee: There was a girl under the kitchen sink.
Bae Soo-mi: Shall we kill them? Bae Soo-yeon: Let's set them free. Bae Soo-mi: She'll have a cow if we mess with her precious. I'd hate to see that.
- The movie is inspired by a famous Korean folk tale "Janghwa Heungryeonjeon."
In the original story, the sisters' names are Janghwa and Hongryeon (Rose Flower and Red Lotus). In the movie, they are Su-mi and Su-yeon (still mean Rose and Lotus).
Su-jeong Lim, who played Su-mi originally auditioned for the role of Su-yeon.
Ji-woon Kim originally wanted Gianna Jun to play Su-mi.
Gianna Jun refused the role of Su-mi because she thought the script was too scary. Ironically, her next project was another horror film, 4 Inyong shiktak (2003), which was translated into English as "The Uninvited." Ironically, "The Uninvited" is the title of the American remake of this film.
