Storyline

Young Park Seol-Hee is eagerly planning her wedding to a young anti-Communist activist when the North Koreans invade. Her fiancé is forced to flee, leaving her behind with her family in their tiny, rural South Korean village. Rather than resist the North Korean regiment that comes to occupy the area, the townspeople (to Seol-Hee's dismay) decide to cooperate with them in order to ensure their own survival. The North Koreans, however, turn out not to be all that Seol-Hee expected. She soon realizes that there is a history between her family and that of the regiment's leader, Lieutenant Kim Jeong-woong. In between the hilarious day to day antics of Seol-Hee's eccentric family and the hard realities of war, the attachment between Seol-Hee and Jeong-woong grows. As the occupation continues, Jeong-woong becomes torn between trying to follow the increasingly harsh orders from his general and protecting the people that he has come to love and care for so much.

Better than "Welcome to Dongmakgol"
17 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this movie, especially since the beginning starts off pretty slow. But the build up is good enough to care for the characters in this movie. And that is what counts when it comes to a movie like this. So the plot is about the North Korean Army occupying a small village in the south and the bond between one of the village girl and the North Korean Lieutenant. The movie gets more touching as it progresses and is well developed and directed. I first thought this was going to be a movie that tries to be serious but isn't, mainly because of the way the characters are portrayed and the cinematography. As it turns out it's a movie that has a good dose of comedy and serious moments. The movie is over 2 hours but it didn't feel that long because I enjoyed spending time with the characters in the village and even when it came to the North Korean Lieutenant. This movie sort of reminded me of "Welcome to Dongmakgol" because it has to do with South and North Korean soldiers in a village full of naive people and the relationship and bonding amongst them. I liked this a bit more though since it has more humanistic and emotional aspect that draws the audience in a bit quicker. And since the characters seemed a bit more believable and likable and the comedy worked a bit better in this. In fact if both these movies came out at the same time this one might have been a bigger hit. Even if the message is sort of similar between the two films.

8/10
