Personality

Park Chang-yi, the Bad, is arguably the most feared hitman in Manchuria and leader of a gang of brutal cutthroats. An extremely proud and psychopathically violent killer.

While Yoon Tae-goo values material value and Park Do-Won values principles, Park Chang-yi values his own pride and immense individual power above all else. Park Chang-yi relishes the fear he inspires and the fact that he is almost always most deadly man in the room. He seems to desire to be the most deadly man in the world. Evidence of such is the offense he takes when his employer describes him as the best in Manchuria; not the best in the continent and world beyond. Also, Park Chang-yi will hunt anyone who he recognises as warriors of comparable skill, such as Park Do-Won, even if he lacks a personal vendetta aganist them.

Park Chang-yi will never forget a defeat. He is so sensitive to one that he killed a member of his own gang, and later an informent; both were slain for the offense of reminding him of such a defeat. Along with a burning need to avenge his lost finger, it is for this reason that Park Chang-yi hunts Yoon Tae-goo; the only known man who defeated him. Park Chang-yi's need to be the best would never allow him to forget nor spare a man who defeated him.

This is not to say that Park Chang-yi does not value material wealth and the power that his subordinates add to his own. He pursued the treasure before learning of Yoon Tae-goo's involvement and expressed remorse that his gang of killers all died in the pursuit of the treasure and Yoon Tae-goo. He described losing his gang as losing all that he had, though even this loss barely distracted him when the prey he had chased was directly in front of him.

Park Chang yi appears to have a the slightest bit of care for his subordinates in a twisted way. After he killed in a duel a subordinate who offended him, Park Chang yi buried is victim neatly and poured a shot of liquor on his grave. This was among the few signs of respect he made in the film. Later, in the chase after Yoon Tae go and fleeing the Japanese Army, Park Chang yi executed a subordinate for his horse and killed many of his subordinates for fleeing after many more had been shelled by artillery. What little respect Park Chang yi gives to his followers is nothing when compaired to his willingness to kill them all.

To Park Chang-yi, money will always be less valuable than his reputation. In the mexican stand off between the three, Park Chang-yi tossed a small fortune into the ring to sweeten the pot for the winner to take all. Park Chang-yi primarily did this to entice Yoon Tae-goo to duel, the money itself was an afterthought for Park Chang-yi himself.

To say that Park Chang-yi is the most violent and cruel of the three is a gross understatement; which is saying a lot when refering to three killers. Park Chang-yi has a psychotic personality and a high propensity for treachery and violence. So much so that everyone who has the misfortune of being in his presence is in constant mortal danger or one erant step from it. This fact gives Park Chang-yi a highly disarming presence around both civilians and criminals who possess more common sensibilities. Examples of Park Chang-yi's evil behavior include killing 5 of Yoon Tae-goo's men to prove himself top killer, betraying and murdering his employer for reasons unknown, slaying his subordintates for fleeling, and forcing subordinate to duel with him to the death after the subordinant mentioned the rumor that Yoon Tae-goo had defeated Park Chang-yi. Park Chang-yi has no qualms about killing bystanders, including women.

When killing, Park Chang-yi is exceptionally capable of inflicting instant death with his guns though he favors slower work with his knife. A master knife fighter, Park Chang-yi will smile as he slowly cuts his victims to pieces, one slice at a time. Arguably for the sake of proving himself the true "Finger Craver," Park Chang-yi will often slice off a victim's finger. This is especially true if the victim is an associate of Yoon Tae-goo.

As a lifelong killer, Park Chang-yi finds humor in death and is amused by how people live as though they will never die, despite its inevitability. Park Chang-yi seems to truly understand this as he is willing to risk death to solidify his legend, even when dueling a foe who had defeated him in the past. Of all the three warriors, Park Chang-yi was the most dangerous person to be in the presense of.
