Sympathy for Lady Vengeance

They say she's a real live angel

Everyone in there calls her

"Kind-hearted" Geum-ja

One, two, three, four!

My path is ridden with...

...high walls and deep pitfalls

Who will aid me across these

dark obstacles?

The Lord's breath lifts me over

these walls

The Lord's hands bridge my steps

safely over these pitfalls

...safely over these pitfalls

What about the winter clothes I sent you?

It's been hard, hasn't it?

I'm so proud of you

Won-mo and I were playing marbles

here that day, and I lost

Won-mo won the biggest marble

Then he ran off to go home

The investigating authorities...

...confirmed the details with a woman

who confessed to the crime

Lee Geum-ja was first introduced to

the public... the criminal who abducted and

killed Park Won-mo, a little boy...

She was nineteen at the time

The whole nation was shocked

by her youth, her ruthless methods...

...and by her unabashed naivety

My state of mind...

This is where the alleged perpetrator

had confined young Park Won-mo

She claims she only wanted to stop

his crying with a pillow...

But what shocked us more were her

beautiful looks

Clamouring tabloids compared her to

Olivia Hussey...

A tactless director announced plans for

a Lee Geum-ja movie...

...creating a backlash from the press

That fall, polka-dot dresses became

the trend

I saw you on TV

Behind that wicked witch's face of yours

I saw the presence of an angel

An angel... Could that be true?

Do you really think an angel resides

in me?

If so, where was that angel...

...when I was committing such an

evil act?

I always wondered about this

after hearing what the preacher said

And then, I realized...

...that the angel inside me only reveals

itself when I invoke it

Where are you? Please, come out

I'm right here

This act of invoking an angel...

This is what we call prayer

Actually, prison is an ideal place to

learn to pray


...we know that we are all sinners

in here

Thank you

Testimonials of Faith Day for Inmates

It's tradition to eat tofu on release... that you'll live white and never

sin again

Why don't you go screw yourself?

Lee Geum-ja Time served 1991-2004

Kim Yang-hee Time served 1998-2002

Meet your new cellmate

I'm Kim Yang-hee. I got 5 years

They said there was someone at

Kyoungju Women's Prison...

...whose face would shine

You were a whore, weren't you?

I heard her nickname was "the Witch"

Come on in

You don't usually wear ties

It's mandatory here

We have lots of VIPs visiting

Shit, it's too tight. Loosen it up a bit

He was my pimp

It felt so good when I was strangling him

- I should've killed myself instead

- Then, die

And be born again. Over and over

if you need to

Prayer is like a scrubbing towel

Scrub off all your sins

Then your skin will become as new as

a baby's ass. Right?

Geum-ja taught me how to lament

my past lives

It's a little noisy, being under the stairs...

But this place brings good luck

Look at me. Three years of giving

unlicensed haircuts...

And now I have a real shop of my own

So set your hopes high

These were mine, but they'll have to do

for now

You know I wanted to get you better

things, right?

Don't you have any high heels?

You never really loved me, did you?

You were just pretending, right?

You've changed a lot

You used to be so sweet...

...and talk so kindly

Are you starting the plan already?

'No. The plan was already started Geum-ja murmured to herself
