Sun gives Jin the notebook. ("Exodus, Part 1")

Before Jin's departure on the raft, Sun gave him a notebook that listed several phonetically spelled English words in Korean (at least five words are written on the first page). This was to help Jin communicate with Sawyer and Michael. Sun's actions in preparing the notebook for her husband made him realize how much she still cared for him, and gave him further reason to leave on the raft; Jin wanted to get rescued to save Sun. ("Exodus, Part 1")

While on the raft during "Exodus, Part 2", Jin can be seen reading or at least holding the notebook while looking toward the horizon, as if trying to memorize some of the words.

The notebook itself seems to be made from various different pieces of paper encased in a plastic ringed booklet, which seems to have a latch to open and close it, possibly all fashioned with parts of the Flight 815 wreckage by Sun.

It was presumably destroyed when the Others blew up the raft.


Confirmed words listed in notebook

  • Starboard - First word spoken when the notebook is initially handed to him.

Jin confirms he knows at least five words from the notebook when Michael asks him what words are in the book:

  • Starboard
  • Aft
  • Port
  • Sail
  • Eat

Possible words listed in notebook

These are words Jin appears to know and understand; however, that may be attributed to the initial raft building processes with Michael, as it was stated they were beginning to understand each other.

  • Rudder – Begins shouting "Rudder!" before anybody else does. We hear Michael mention the word rudder before Jin had the notebook when saying "We need to fix the rudder before we even start to think about that."
  • Rope – Appears to know what rope is, and repeats the word, when Michael asks for it.
  • Safe – Asked Sayid in English if it was safe to land on the Pala Ferry in "The Glass Ballerina".
