She later attempted to talk Sun out of leaving and she eventually gave in to Sun’s intentions, and decided to help her.

She promised to look after Sun’s dog once she had gone, and gave Sun a fake passport and documentation. She had also arranged her escape. She forced Sun to repeat the time of the escape over and over “11:15”. (“House of the Rising Sun”)


Originally in Korean:

DECORATOR: Your husband told me that money is no object to redecorate this place. You’re a very lucky wife.

JIN: Move the dog.

SUN: Let’s look at the apartment from the bedroom, shall we?

DECORATOR: Are you sure about this?

SUN: Yes.

DECORATOR: You’ve taken your lessons?

SUN: Yes.

DECORATOR: Do you realize that your husband and your father will do everything they can to find you? Are you sure you and your husband can’t reconcile?

SUN: When I’m gone will you care for my dog?

DECORATOR (Hands Sun a Passport): During your trip, at the airport, at 11:15. . . You make an excuse and walk out of the airport. Bring nothing! A car will be waiting. For the first week your family will assume you’ve been kidnapped. You will stay out of sight until they come to think you are dead. After that you will be free to move wherever you want. Now, tell me when.

SUN: The airport, 11:15.


SUN: 11:15. 11:15. 11:15.

Wiki Info

Arethusa means “the waterer”. In Greek mythology, she was a nymph and daughter of Nereus (making her a Nereid), and later became a fountain on the island of Ortygia in Syracuse, Sicily.

The myth of her transformation begins when she came across a clear stream and began bathing, not knowing it was the river god Alpheus. He fell in love during their encounter, but she fled after discovering his presence and intentions, as she wished to remain a chaste attendant of Artemis. After a long chase, she prayed to her goddess to ask for protection. Artemis hid her in a cloud, but Alpheus was persistent. She began to perspire profusely from fear, and soon transformed into a stream. Artemis then broke the ground allowing Arethusa another attempt to flee. Her stream traveled under the earth to the island of Ortygia, but Alpheus flowed through the sea to reach her and mingle with her waters.

During Demeter’s search for her daughter Persephone, Arethusa entreated Demeter to discontinue her punishment of Sicily for her daughter’s disappearance. She told the goddess that while traveling in her stream below the earth, she saw her daughter looking sad as the queen of Hades.

Arethusa occasionally appeared on coins as a young girl with a net in her hair and dolphins around her head. These coins were common around Ortygia, the location in which she ends up after fleeing from Alpheus.

The Roman writer Ovid called Arethusa by the name “Alpheias”, because her stream was believed to have a subterranean communication with the river Alpheius, in Peloponnesus.
