Did You Know?


John H. Lee's first South Korean movie in six years. See more »


Capt. Jang and his men commandeer a North Korean Self-Propelled Gun (SPG) and use it to assault North Korean beach defenses at Wolmi-Do. However, its appearance does not resemble the actual North Korean SPG in service at the time, the SU-76. The real SU-76 had a thinner, longer gun on a rear-mounted casemate, while the one in the film has a front-mounted casemate housing a shorter, larger main gun. See more »

Operation Chromite: Inchon battle deserved a more instructive reconstruction…
3 February 2017 | by niutta-enricoSee all my reviews

Korean Entertainment Industry is a reality. It evolved over the years and now it may count on a wide choice of good Actors, Authors, Musicians, Producers and Technicians. The results are professional TV and Movie productions, with an overall good artistic level.

The present title is a War Movie that recalls of old American productions of the same genre. Just as in the 50s and the 60s, when World War II was too fresh a memory and war stories were rhetorical and unrealistic, this movie is biased by a mono dimensional description of the UN/US counter offensive in the Korean War (which easily may be too fresh a memory for people from ROK…).

This is a pity of course, because almost nothing is left of the real events (which by the way are much more interesting than the fictional ones) and the movie is not instructive at all. Unfortunately men are the same everywhere and Communists are not the only ones who cannot resist the charm of propaganda…
