Ending
Oh Dae-su is kidnapped off the street and imprisoned in a hotel room for 15 years without explanation, during that time Oh's wife is killed (and the cops name him as the suspect). At the end of the 15 years, Oh is released without knowing why (it wasn't a criminal type of jail), and is released with new clothes (he's locked in a trunk however). Outside a store, he's given a mobile phone and wallet from a stranger. He goes to a restaurant and finds Mido, whom he is drawn to from a dream, and as he eats (a live squid), the phone rings and he's asked if he likes the clothes. Oh behinds a mission of revenge to find out why he was imprisoned, and by whom. He does a lot of beating people up, and meets Woo-jin, who tells him he has five days to sort it out; if he can solve the mystery, Oh will kill himself. If Oh cannot, he will kill Mido. A bit later, Oh and Mido had the hot lovin'. Through a few flashbacks and other details, it seems Woo-jin was having the hot lovin' with his sister, and Oh saw it and started that rumor going, which evolved into the sister, Soo-ah being pregnant; she tossed herself off a dam after arguing about it with Woo-jin. Oh begins to grovel and cuts out his tongue at Woo-jin's feet (begging to not tell Mido the truth) after Woo-jin tells Mido that the reason he was kept captive for 15 years was he began raising Mido when she was three years old -- Mido is his daughter. (That's the core of Woo-jin's revenge, to pay back Oh's exposure of his relationship in a like way.) Woo-jin then kills himself in the elevator, true to his word. (Getting Mido and Oh together was done through hypnosis.) In the last scene, Oh is in the forest, in the snow with the hypnotist, who helps him work through a bit of the stuff in Woo-jin's apartment. Oh wakes up, still in the snowy forest, and Mido hugs him and says she loves him. Moving film reel
