Eliza Why is there no mention of the actress Jang Ja-yeon who plays one of many women who the doctor Min-Suk sleeps around with but who is very much in love with him.there is the mention of the detective who knocks at the door, he must have been in the film for about 1 minute..disgraceful. It was unfortunate that she took her own life 07 March 2009 she had been physically abused by her own manager on a regular basis. An alleged suicide note left by Jang describes how she was beaten and forced to entertain and have sex with several program directors, CEOs and media executives, causing considerable debate about relations in the entertainment industry. RIP Jang Ja-yeon you were on the verge of a really good career and a fine actress from what I have seen. Please change this and pay a decent tribute to a young woman who died too young. Such a waste of a young life.

akks This was a great movie. It was a total mindfuck ^^

sko I think this was a very clever movie and as Mo said, it had style. A lot of style. Balancing between reality and illusion, the movie succeeded in making my mind almost explode at some points. Very catchy they way the plot and truth are unfolded. And beautifully directed.

Farah i don't know exactly what the film want to tell about this film is so confusing the character play by Jang Hyuk was so bored and the plot so bad!! i just want to say Jang HYuk is wasting his talent by playing this movie!

Mo Hi, I am from canada. I have to say Korean movies have style. This certainly has style. Good movie.

RamenLover Joh Producer: there isn't a mention anywhere in the article that states it is an adaptation.

joh producer The movie "Searching for the Elephant" is NOT an adaptation. It is an original screenplay written by S.K. Jhung. Please make the correction.
