After being kidnapped and imprisoned for fifteen years, Oh Dae-Su is released, only to find that he must find his captor in five days.
In the flashback scene where Dae-su Oh first speaks to Lee Soo-ah, Lee Soo-ah is shown reading a book by Sylvia Plath, an American poet who committed suicide.
Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and you weep alone.
Despite having been imprisoned and isolated from the outside world for 15 years, Oh Dae-Su is shown to be familiar with the operation of a modern cell phone, something that would have been very rare (and completely different from the flip-top handset Dae-Su has) in South Korea when he was imprisoned in the late 80s. However, Dae-Su watched television for 15 years and it is highly likely that at some point he saw a modern cell phone being used.
