Question: When Mido was trying to come up with a screen name for Oh Dae-Su early in the movie, why was Dae-Su so interested/startled by the mention of "The Count of Monte Cristo"?
Chosen answer: Perhaps because in the movie/book "The Count of Monte Cristo" that's what happened to him. In the book/movie the hero Edmund Dantes is renamed "the Count" in order to disguise that fact that he is Dantes after having broken out of jail. This way he is free to seek revenge on the ones that put him in jail under false charges.

When Dae-su enters the room of one of his nemesis, his computer screen shows information about the stock exchange. The Internet address on the screen is: C:/DocumentsandSettings/[.]/OldBoy/[.], which would be a link to a folder on that computer, not an Internet address.
