They would leave her by herself in her room and come over. So I would ask them ‘what are you going to do if Jung In gets hurt’ to which they responded that she played well by herself. They claimed that she would just fall asleep if she got tired.

  • “Let’s hope she gets the death sentence. We can’t just leave her like that.”

  • “Let’s do a public execution.”
  • “If you’re going to be crazy, at least be a good crazy.”
