  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "2009 Lost Memories"

    Sakamoto (played by Jang Don-gun) is an ethnically Korean investigator working for the Japanese government in an alternative reality where Japan won World War II.

This resulted in Japan joining the Allies and Russia allying with the Axis. It should come as little surprise that in this timeline America entered the war a lot earlier. Goodness knows we hated Communists a lot more than we did the Nazis,...More
