Flashback: Jin-Soo Kwon

Goofs: When Michael thinks Jin has set fire to his raft, he punches him in the face a couple of times. When Jin is leaving Sun later on, his face is miraculously unmarked. There is no sign of any swelling or bruising. He doesn't look like a guy who's just been punched in the face.

  • When Jin is packing to leave the cave, his backpack is wide open and unzipped when he swings it onto his right shoulder and then carries the fishing net. After a brief cut to Sun shouting in English, Jin is walking away carrying the net, and the backpack is still on his shoulder, only now it is zipped closed.
  • When Shannon is talking to Locke about Boone staying out of her business, her hair changes between each shot. It is very noticeable, she goes from having no hair on her face, to having a lot hanging down the side of her face.
  • When Shannon is looking for Boone but instead finds his "jungle pal" Locke, he is gutting his dinner and gets blood on his face. The blood on Locke's face repeatedly changes, such as in one shot there's a small clot of blood beside his eye, and in another shot the blood is lower and larger.
  • When Hurley talkes to Jin on the golf-course you see a house in the left corner of the background.
  • When Shannon is talking to Locke in the jungle, there's a bloodstain on the left of his face. Between shots it changes from running horizontal to vertical on his face.
