Trivia

The climactic battle in the movie was a part of the Battle of P'ohang-Dong, from August 5-20, 1950. Savage fighting broke out as the North Koreans attacked the U.N. forces, consisting of American and South Korean soldiers, in an attempt to take the town of P'ohang-Dong on the northeast corner of the Pusan perimeter. Despite being pushed back initially, the U.N. forces regrouped and eventually defeated the North Koreans, forcing their retreat. It was a turning point in that it effectively broke the back of the North Korean offensive, which was beginning to suffer from superior U.N. support and a lack of manpower and supplies. See more »

Goofs

The film gives the impression that the student-soldier volunteers are the only force protecting P'ohang. In real life, a large force of South Korean troops from two divisions and other independent units were assigned to that area and positioned on the town, and were involved in heavy fighting, eventually being forced back by the North Koreans.

hey
6 September 2010 | by llbenwardSee all my reviews

hey, let me fix something from last comments

it was 1950s north Korean didn't know how to fight either. that's why they just jumped in and got killed. and the movie wasn't over reacting because there were actually 2500 north Korean against 71 students. and the students fought with them for 11 hours overall. oh i guess i have to write more to submit...OK this movie was OK but it's based on true story and talks how sad it is it's not just an action movie. and when the student(top) killed the north Korean, look how afraid he is. so it's not like just an action war movie. but i thought Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War was better :)
