Oh no they didn't. Well, maybe the Korean community's persecution complex seems more legitimate. I can't believe that the NYT just posted a front page photo comparing Cho's photo with a still from the film "Old Boy." And this is based on a professor's hunch? And this is reporting? "The poses in the two images are similar, and the plot of the movie, “Oldboy,” seems dark enough to merit at least some further study."

Dark enough indeed.The film has nothing to do with a mass-murdering spree. In fact, the film critiques the lust for vengeance as an ultimately empty gesture. And though violent, it's a violence that bears no resemblance to the shootings. The director Park Chan Wook must be reeling right now (bet you they'll be pulling the American remake of that film).
