The Handmaiden (2016) Poster

Min-hee Kim: Lady Hideko



  • Lady Hideko : My saviour who came to ruin my life. My Tamako, my Sookee.

  • Lady Hideko : You can even curse at me or steal things from me. But please don't lie to me. Understand?

  • Lady Hideko : [whispering]  What does a man really want?

    Sook-Hee : What?

    Lady Hideko : What I mean is... the weeding night. How would I know? I grew up without a mother to teach me. I have no idea about any of this.


    Lady Hideko : Probably kissing first?

    Sook-Hee : [thinking]  Alright. Let's try to put her to sleep. So adorable. In a foreign country and without a mother. Alone in this giant mansion. Reading useless books. And learning nothing of value.

    Lady Hideko : [thinking]  Why did the taste change? Sour and bitter. Within the bitterness changes to sweetness. Sweet with a nice scent.

    Lady Hideko : How do you know? Have you done this before?

    Sook-Hee : Nope, not at all, my friend showed me this.

    Lady Hideko : Showed you? By describing?

    Sook-Hee : Yes, by describing.

    Lady Hideko : So this is the felling!

    Sook-Hee : This is what the Count wants!

    Lady Hideko : Really?

    Sook-Hee : The Count...

    Lady Hideko : Would it be like being with a corpse? You know, my hands and legs cold?

    Sook-Hee : Is that so?

    Lady Hideko : Do you want to feel it?

    Sook-Hee : I just feel relieved!

    Lady Hideko : Relief? Do it to me. I want to personally know if it's relieving.

    Sook-Hee : The Count will want to do this too. And also... So cute! If the Count sees this...

    Lady Hideko : Will he be as gentle as you?

    Sook-Hee : Of course! The Count will also... also...

    Lady Hideko : Continue! Just like that! As if the Count was doing it!

    Sook-Hee : After that, he would say "How soft and warm." So... so wet. Your beauty leaves me breathless!

  • Lady Hideko : Men are disgusting. Why do you always think of those things?

    Count Fujiwara : You're asking me about how I think? You think that all I'm interested in is your body? Is that so? You definitely have been reading too many of those erotic writings! If there's anything I do want from you it's not your eyes, hands, or ass, but your money. You having the first is money. Talking and teasing an aristocrat like you is so fun!

  • Lady Hideko : It would have been better if I was never born. To have never taken a breath and live.

  • Lady Hideko : Love. A conman like you knows what love is?

  • Lady Hideko : But, for sending me Sookee out of all the girls in the world, I feel 'slightly' grateful.

  • Lady Hideko : Is it stupid to love someone being someone like you?

  • Lady Hideko : [narrating]  At that moment, a drop of insanity could cause one to go completely mad. If I could drive Sasaki mad as well, then life would've been more fun.
