Complete crap, unfortunately
24 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I normally like to watch this series. However, this episode was completely awful. The problem was that the people who filmed it did not appear to know anything about Korea nor did they bother to even try to find out. First of all, the geography for Korea seemed to be wrong from the start, it appeared to place Korea in Southeast Asia. I thought I had heard it wrong, but, the landscape they had for Korea was completely wrong - there are no palm trees except some in the very south in Busan or in Jeju Island, but none otherwise on the peninsula except these very southern locations, and definitely not anywhere near the demilitarised zone where the events were portrayed to take place. Otherwise, too, I've actually been in the DMZ myself, and definitely it does not look like anything shown in the episode. Secondly, the Korean baddies spoke awful Korean, the accent was hardly understandable and mangled. In addition, these guys were crossing the world's possibly most heavily guarded border at will - this would be absolutely impossible in real life, not to mention of launching rockets in the area just like that with impunity. Maybe the filmmakers have seen too much MASH from the 70s or old Vietnam war movies from which they have drawn. It's just awful, and I presume "the budget did not allow" to film in Korea, and perhaps they actually could not get any real Korean speakers to act in this episode due to all this. I can't understand how Danie Dae Kim and Grace Park, too, would have been able to put up with this, even granted that they are not first generation ethnic Koreans. It's all incredible...
