Synopsis
In 1951 ceasefire is declared, but two remaining armies fought their final battle on the front line
Towards the end of the Korean War, a South Korean battalion is fiercely battling over a hill on the front line border against the North in order to capture a strategic point that would determine the new border between two nations. The ownership of this small patch of land would swap multiple times each day. Kang is dispatched to the front line in order to investigate the tacit case that’s been happening there. But he gets spiraled into the war that’s more terrifying than death itself when he meets his friend Kim, who has transformed into a war machine, and his unit. As the countdown for ceasefire begins, both sides become more vicious, resulting in deaths of countless lives until the last man could claim the land.

  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Leafie, A Hen Into The Wild"

    2013/10/05,
    In the Spotlight this Week: "Leafie, A Hen Into The Wild" (2011) by Oh Seong-yoon Before 2011 no Korean animation had attracted more than a million admissions. It's a number that, according to director Oh Seong-yoon, has "symbolic meaning", a figure that his first feature animation "Leafie, A Hen Into The Wild" eventually more than doubled. "Leafie" spent seven weeks in the top ten last summer, never rising higher than fourth or claiming more than 250,433 admissions at a time. It lingered for weeks and was supported by a steady flow of curious filmgoers, all while competing with the likes of "Arrow, The Ultimate Weapon" (7.4M), "The Front Line" (2.9M), "Quick" (3.1M), and many others that were on show during its impressive spell. This popular adaptation went on to entertain more than 2.2 million filmgoers, making it the most commercially successful Korean animation in history. "Leafie" was a polished, beautiful story that was well voiced, and unashamedly touched on the selfless trials of modern motherhood,...More

  • The most important 72 minutes

    2013/03/10, Source,
    The 72-minute rule is hot topic once again. The issue about making all mini-series broadcasted in the three broadcasting stations started in 2008. The main 3 stations gathered in January last year and emphasized the 72-minute rule. However, this is just a gentlemen's agreement which has no legal force. It's like glass that can break at any time. The 72-minute rule was mentioned again with the start of KBS 2TV "IRIS 2", MBC "7th Grade Civil Servant" and SBS "That Winter, the Wind Blows",...More
