The following season reveal spoilers for Lookism Episodes 370-372, by Taejun Park, are available on WEBTOON.
Lookism is a WEBTOON series that excels at portraying strange character transformations, in which Jiho Park undergoes some of the most striking changes. Jiho has gone from being a cowardly and selfish, but generally kind-hearted guy, to a terrifying presence capable of changing Lookism’s balance of power. That’s why some readers were shocked by his breaking, somewhat objectionable. However, there may be a darker secret hidden behind his death.
Jiho’s original purpose was to counterbalance the boy Daniel, as they clearly have similarities, not only in appearance but also in the way they are bullied. Although Jiho’s home life is much more affluent than Daniel’s, he represents a potential path Daniel could have taken if he hadn’t realized the mistake in his approach. If he only blames others for his failures and ignores his mother’s sacrifice. In a way, Jiho is the perfect cautionary tale for Daniel.
Jiho’s growth in looks (or lack thereof)
Jiho’s prison transformation also occurs at the same time as Daniel’s main abilities and purposes, begin to emerge. The Juvenile Prison arc remains one of the most disturbing yet poignant parts in Lookism. And, up until this point, Jiho still seems to be a suitable opponent for Daniel, and arguably a more terrifying villain than many others. That’s because he didn’t start out like that, and he learned to become stronger, not because he was strong or smart but because he was more ruthless. Jiho’s dark growth also offsets Daniel’s more positive evolution.
But in the latest installment, we learn that Jiho hasn’t really grown, at least not in the sense that Daniel did. Sure, he lied and cheated to get out of prison, but his selfishness and unwillingness to take responsibility—his two fundamental weaknesses still didn’t go away. These urges fueled something even more dangerous and made him irreplaceable. Unfortunately, his mental illness only exacerbated these problems and eventually led him down a path of no return.
Jiho’s signs of mental illness begin in Chapter 185, at the end of Juvenile Prison when Jiho hallucinates that he is talking to other people in solitary confinement. In the end, it is revealed that he was simply saying goodbye to his weaker old self. But at the time, this seemed like an artistic expression of Jiho’s maturity, rather than an actual mental illness.
Jiho’s death in Lookism Resembles That of Olly Wang
These delusions only become apparent when the three school bullies Jiho defeats in Chapter 355 seem to have no memory of the event in Chapter 370. Also, the scene in Chapter 355 in which Jiho comes to meet Jake, copied almost frame by frame in Chapter 370 (see image above), and one of Jake’s underlings, whom Jiho stabbed with a cigarette in Chapter 355, also did not recognize Jiho at all in Chapter 370. However, he has an eye patch, which may be the source of Jiho’s delusions. These developments make one wonder what percentage of Jiho’s supposed “maturity” and “dominance” in prison is actually real, and how much of it is imaginary.
Most importantly, Jiho’s death bears a suspicious resemblance to Olly Wang’s, and these are the only major deaths to date in Lookism. Both fell from a high-rise building and both seemed to have suffered some kind of mental trauma before falling to the ground dead. The similarities are either extreme laziness or some carefully planned connections by Lookism creator Taejun Pak, and he doesn’t seem to be the lazy type.
Jiho’s death could be random
The fact that the end of Jiho’s part in Chapter 371 cuts immediately to the scene where Yoojin from The Laborer lamented the death of a friend suggests he may be involved in Jiho’s death, or at least know. Jiho. Readers learn that Olly is taking some mysterious drug to treat her condition and that the drug is related to the cult that Johan Seong’s mother joins. Since Jiho’s mental illness was diagnosed in prison, he might as well use drugs, and the only organization that supplies drugs (that we know of) is the Workers.
Olly Wang is a threat to Worker’s dominance as he is a smart businessman and is increasing his influence, but Jiho’s death may have been coincidental. However, it is not too difficult to find a connection between the two deaths, not only because of how similar they look but also because Jiho’s untimely death seems a bit too trivial unless it is established for something bigger.
