Can we trust everything we see in Killing Stalking?

I think the reason why I find Sangwoo to be more likable compared to other serial killers would be the fact that he seems so human even in the depths of his insanity: he clothed and showered Yoonbum, he fed him porridge in the beginning, he gave him medicine because of his crying, and we’ve seen him take Yoonbum up to the room to take care of him even when Yoonbum tried to poison the food. We’ve seen Sangwoo panic, we’ve seen him pretend and lie, got to know his honest and dark humorous side, was shown an inch of his tragic childhood, we understood he’s just not right in the head. Rather than being downright terrified of this guy, there’s a sense of charm and appeal we’re drawn to with just a little hint of fear and this kind of stumped me. Is Koogi making this a known fact by purposely making sure Sangwoo seems to do a least a little bit of good? A serial killer is manipulative and I wonder if we, the readers, are being manipulated as well…

But how? Then I went into thinking - how much can we trust ANYTHING in this manhwa? I mean, two of these characters aren’t completely mentally sane after all.

Let’s take a look towards my baby Yoonbum - 

Koogi made sure right off the bat, at the VERY beginning (even when we didn’t know about his certain hobby) that he wasn’t normal as well. He had this obsession with Sangwoo that lead to stalking tendencies such as finding out Sangwoo’s house and his combination, and we’ve known he held this torch for a very long time. Right, now then I realized most the chapters we read is in Yoonbum’s perspective and since we understood that Yoonbum’s not completely right in the head, so why should we trust anything we see of Sangwoo? 

BUT JAYNIA, ISN’T THIS A BIT FAR-FETCHED? YOONBUM DIDN’T VIEW SANGWOO LIKE THE GUY OF HIS DREAMS, SANGWOO WAS STILL SHOWN AS THE MONSTER THROUGHOUT ALL THE PRESENT CHAPTERS JUST LIKE HE SHOULD BE.

Yeah, you’re right. Even though Yoonbum isn’t normal, he’s also not as twisted as our muscle bunny, Sangwoo. However, Yoonbum’s imagination of Sangwoo had to be shattered mainly for the character development and plot drive and thus we can see how unreliable Yoonbum’s perspective can be because further along he shows hints of Stockholm syndrome and other characteristics of an abused victim - from Sangwoo’s image turning into something scary, to gentle, to loving, then vice versa. 

To further emphasize my point let’s bring in a supporting character that is no way involved with the relationship between Yoonbum and Sangwoo.

SEUNGBAE!

Why I find him to be more reliable in terms of perspective is that we got to know a bit more of his background as well and the most important one was that he used to be a detective. And as we know, detectives are usually keen to nonverbal cues such as face expressions and body language. Through Seungbae’s eyes, let’s see what Sangwoo looked like: 

They say the eyes are the window to the soul. Kind of creepy, right? In Seungbae’s mind, we are given a suspicious and less-desirable Sangwoo. Is it because Seungbae’s experience as a detective has honed his skills in detecting something we couldn’t see through Yoonbum’s eyes? However, Seungbae too cannot be trusted as much.

Why? Because we were also shown in his background that despite being a detective, he was demoted to a regular patrol cop. This can be like a double-edged sword - maybe Seungbae is trying to see the evil in people to redeem his worth back up, after all, we have seen an emotional scene with a picture of Seungbae and an older man (dad?) in a picture that was crumbled in Seungbae’s fist. His arc is directed towards being a hero and from my previous readings, heroes can turn towards a thorny path even with good intentions - think of Light from Death Note. 

So what can I tell you in summary? 

Take everything with a pinch of salt. We’ve seen unreliable narration with Lolita, The Great Gatsby, Othello, etc. so I’m not surprised that in a psychological manhwa like KS we are also being pushed and pulled in a direction that we do not have control of. There are also some truths embedded in KS but the best convincing lies always have a bit of truth in them. 

I guess we’ll see in further chapters but this was just my two cents.

  • Erik & Lyle Menendez’s defense. 

After being charged with first-degree murder in the Aug. 20, 1989, for the killings of their father, defense lawyers say they acted out of fear for their lives. Three days after Lyle Menendez had threatened to disclose years of sexual abuse by his father. They say Jose Menendez sexually molested his older son from the ages of 6 to 8 and his younger son from the ages of 6 to 18.The brothers are claiming self-defense in the same manner that battered wives have successfully argued that killings of abusive husbands are justified even at a moment when they are not under physical attack.

  • Some Serial killers + High IQs 

The average serial killer has an IQ 94.7. Although various tests measure IQ, a score of 90 to 110 is usually considered “average” intelligence. A serial killer with average IQ is also the most likely to strangle or shoot their victims. Serial killers who have used bombs show, on average, higher IQs, while those who used poison exhibited the lowest.

The Childhood of Aileen Wuornos

(Photo: Aileen Wuornos, age 4)


Female serial killer Aileen Carol Wuornos had an appalling childhood, to say the least. She endured abuse, degrading sexual events, and other horrifying circumstances. The childhood of Aileen Wuornos was nowhere near normal, and it certainly wasn’t easy. 


Born Aileen Carol Pittman on February 29, 1956, in Rochester, Michigan, Aileen was the child of Diane Wuornos and Leo Dale Pittman. Diane was just 14 years old when she married Leo Pittman, and they had divorced after less than two years of marriage (approximately two months before Aileen was born). The pair had one child before Aileen; Keith, who was born on March 14, 1955. The children had never met their father as he was incarcerated at the time of Aileen’s birth. Leo Pittman was a diagnosed schizophrenic and had been convicted of sex crimes against children. On January 30, 1969, Leo hanged himself in prison. 


Diane Wuornos soon gave up her children, sending them to live with their maternal grandparents, Lauri and Britta Wuornos. They adopted Aileen and Keith on March 18, 1960. Life with the grandparents was chaotic at best. Lauri, the grandfather, was physically and sexually abusive to the children. To make matters worse, Britta was additionally an abusive alcoholic. Aileen claimed that when she was a child, her grandfather would force her to strip naked before subsequently beating her. Aileen also confessed to engaging in sexual acts with her brother. 


By the young age of only 11 years old, Aileen was participating in sexual acts at school. She would offer blowjobs and other sexual actions in exchange for various items, such as food, cigarettes, and drugs. When Aileen was 12, she found out that Lauri and Britta were actually her and Keith’s grandparents, rather than their parents. This had been kept a dark secret, and discovering this did not make Aileen’s situation any better. 


At the age of 14, in 1970, Aileen became pregnant. This pregnancy was the result of rape, allegedly by either a local pedophile or an accomplice of Aileen’s grandfather. On March 23, 1971, Aileen gave birth to a baby boy at a home for unwed mothers. The child was immediately placed for adoption. Not long after childbirth, Aileen dropped out of school. It was around this time that Britta, Aileen’s grandmother, passed away. She died of liver failure. 


When Aileen Wuornos was only 15 years old, her grandfather kicked her out of the house. Aileen then had to support herself, and she chose to do so by prostitution. She was forced to live in the woods down the road by her old home. Staying at hotels during prostitution jobs was the only way for Aileen to shower and have a warm place to sleep. When forced to sleep outdoors in the woods, she would build makeshift forts. 


These were the main aspects of the beginning of Aileen Wuornos’ life; abandonment, physical and sexual abuse, demeaning sexual acts, young pregnancy, and strenuous survival. From here on out Aileen’s struggle continued, and would later turn into unspeakable violence.

Why I never like your new boyfriends~
Yes they are the sweetest girlfriends and love each other madly thank you.

6 Fun Facts About Edmund Kemper.
