I hope to the high heavens Jae Lee is not the father. I mean wheres the mystery, wheres the suspence. I hope it was Jin or someone along those lines. Anyway I hope its not him. --08:01, 15 September 2006 (PDT)
Jae is the father. In The Whole Truth, Jae tells Sun she can't run away from her life, after she has been continuing english lessons with Jae even though she is fluent. Sun asks if Jin is her life, and Jae replies, "I'm not saying you should stay for Jin..." while they look in each others eyes. She hides the pregnancy from Jin, and it is clearly noticeable that Sun looks guilty EVER SINGLE TIME she is hugging Jin after they talk about the baby. This is hard evidence. And the kicker: the episode name is the WHOLE truth. Jack tells Sun she should tell Jin the whole truth. When Sun says she's never been with another man, she says "It's the truth" and looks guilty. She didn't tell him the WHOLE truth. Why would she hide her pregnancy in the first place? Let me know your thoughts.--Strayrooster 08:54, 15 September 2006 (PDT)
- Thats a thorey. The ponits you have stated could still mean anyone. Except the "I'm not saying you should stay for Jin..." becuase that could be just shes feed up of him coming home covered in blood and such. -- 09:06, 15 September 2006 (PDT)
Jae Lee can't be the father, because they have been on the island for 10 weeks, so she must be in at least her 10th+ week and yet she has no belly what so ever. - turkleton
Thats true she is still in the first trimester of the pregnancy in any situation. If A) Jae was the father her 10 weeks on the island would have begun to show enlarged breasts and enlarged uterus. (no tummy on Sun) B) Sun and Jin did the horizontal dance on the island and she hasn't begun to show it yet. She still would be in the first trimester though.
And even in the end when the baby is born ,in the zombie season, there will be no way of knowing unless: Micheal was the father. Or by that point we have paternity tests on the island. Which at the rate the show is going now, wouldn't surprise me. Bhold1 18:52, 12 October 2006 (PDT)
When did Jae Lee die?
The article theorized that Jae can't be the father of Sun's child because it would have been "long ago". But do we really have any idea how long before the plane crash Jae died? Jae comments that Sun's english is very good, which implies it's on the later side and probably close to her plan to escape from Jin. --Minderbinder 13:55, 12 October 2006 (PDT) Thats all possible especially if the events of the glass balletrina's flashbacks were all in one day minus the sun as a child one. So this may have even have been as close to her last day in Korea. Bhold1 18:36, 12 October 2006 (PDT)
Jae and Kate?
I know its a reall out there theory but it's possible. Remember when Kate and Sawyer played "I never" we learn Kate was married. For a short time she says. Then when we see Jae for the first time Jae says he has someone in America waiting for him. Then when he comes back and is teaching Sun English, he says a line like "Who am I to talk about love." Insinuating the relationship he had in America was over.
Now I know it's a strange theory with a few holes: like why would Kate marry a rich guy if she was on the run it would just bring unwanted attention to her. Yet it could have been before she was running.
What do you think? I didn't want to put it in just yet as it's such an out there theory. Bhold1 16:50, 12 October 2006 (PDT)
- But Jae Lee's relationship with Kate may have been before she killed her father and went on the run, simple. --Andyroo316 19:56, 12 October 2006 (PDT)
Isn't the whole Jae Lee Is David theory a bit ridiculous since JL's name isn't David? --Minderbinder 06:32, 13 October 2006 (PDT)
Was it really a lie for Paik to say that Jae was "stealing" from him? Paik thought (as viewers were led to believe) that Jae had slept with Sun. In Paik's traditionalist and mafiaesque view, this could easily be considered "stealing" his daughter. We know that Paik is very posessive and controlling of his daughter, to the point that Jin has to sell his soul to Paik for permission to marry Sun. - GoodRom 10:40, 4 December 2006 (PST)
Maybe Sun Killed Jae Lee?
It never clearly indicated that Jae jumped from his room to kill himself, if fact, he looked as though he was already dead when he hit Jin's car. Also the fact that Jae was still clutching a pearl necklace in his hand is intriguing. Why would he deliberately go and get the necklace just to kill himself, that is, if Sun never took the necklace in the first place.
Maybe she was wearing them and he grabbed onto them as she pushed him out the window?
Sun's whereabouts were unknown during the time that Jin went out to deliver the message, she may have even followed him there. It's possible that she was so adament about Jin not finding out about the baby that she thought killing him was the only way to ensure silence.
Or she could have been concerned that if her father found out that Jin did not finish Jae off that he would kill or hurt Jin or tell Jin or something bad like that and finishing Jin off was a way to make sure her father was satisfied.
One more sick thought that I had was that if Sun did kill Jae to make sure Jin never found out about the affair, she was asking her father at the funeral if he would ever tell Jin because if he were going to, she may have begun planning her own father's assasination to keep the secret.
- It has been confirmed by podcasts that Sun had NO influence in Jae Lee's suicide. Sun never accpeted his gift of a pearl necklace. Sun is a very nice lady and I don't think she would push her ex out of a window or kill her dad. If she did kill her dad I'm sure his henchmen would have something to say about it. : -) --THE MONSTER
Names at funeral service
At Jae's funeral, why does a banner over the large bouquet on the left say 박종호 (Park Jong-Ho)? Perhaps that's who gave those flowers? And the banner on the right shows 조 (Jo), presumably part of another name. I ask this in partial ignorance: I am not Korean, but I can read the script and I have some knowledge of names. And, just out of curiosity, I don't suppose there is any mention of Jae's full Korean name, is there? I expect he had a third name, 이재__, but just didn't use it when speaking English.
