Synopsis

A firefight occurs at the “Bridge of No Return” in the DMZ (De-Militarized Zone), and two North Korean soldiers are killed.

    Actors Lee Je-hoon, left, and Goh Soo in a scene from the Korean War (1950-53) film "The Front Line" By Lee Hyo-won It's another Korean War (1950-53) film, made on a hefty budget - at least for local standards - and featuring an A-list cast. The viewer, already having seen such action-packed, homespun tearjerkers celebrating humanist values as "Taegukgi" and "71-Into the Fire" or any one of those Hollywood World War II blockbusters, can easily doubt whether Jang Hoon's upcoming "The Front Line" could bring something new,...More

just watched this movie. It's not only about a war. For me, it's all about friendship. This is my best line: "if war really broke out, would we have to shoot each other too?"
Definitely a Masterpiece !

Where can I download this movie? It seems a very brilliant movie. I think it has a strong plot with Lee Byeong Heon as the main cast.
Man! she can not throw darts to save her life. hahaha ;)
