  • The concept of Little Hunger, Great Hunger was fascinating.
  • Jong Su was introduced as a sweet, unassuming guy that was longing for connection.
  • We talk about triggers. For Jong Su, it could have been his dad being sentencing as well as selling the calf. For Ben, Jong Su seemed to be his trigger.
  • How did Ben choose his victims. We have two theories
  • as per his greenhouse analogy, he deliberately and was cautious to select women that would not be missed and were ’empty’
