This movie have many named female characters. As a non Korean speaker, i could not transcript most of the names but i am sure the following characters are named: Su-an (the daughter), Sunk-Kyng (the pregnant woman), Jin Hee (the cheerleader), the two old sisters, the grand mother of Su-an.

Do they talk about something besides a man ? Su-an the 8 years old girl talk with every other woman in the movie. She spend about half of the movie with Sunk Kyng and talk about candy, the expected baby and the main threat of movie. Jin Hee, Sunk Kyng and Su-an hide in a the toilet of the train during 15 minutes. The two old sisters talk about altruism and other subjects.
I am not really sure but i thing Su-An and the grand mother talk over the phone.

Definitely pass the test and the movie is a solid 7/10.
