Did You Know?


The film takes place in September 1950. See more »


Onscreen text just before the credits tells the audience that "13 days after the successful landing operation of Incheon, on September 15, 1950, the UN Allied Forces reclaimed Seoul." However, the actual Battle of Inchon took place on September 19, 1950, and Seoul was not completely recaptured until September 25, 1950.

This is not entirely correct. UN forces began landing on September 15th. Still 2 days short of of the "13 days" claimed in the onscreen text, but not as off as claimed above. See more »

Operation Chromite: Inchon battle deserved a more instructive reconstruction…
3 February 2017 | by niutta-enricoSee all my reviews

Korean Entertainment Industry is a reality. It evolved over the years and now it may count on a wide choice of good Actors, Authors, Musicians, Producers and Technicians. The results are professional TV and Movie productions, with an overall good artistic level.

The present title is a War Movie that recalls of old American productions of the same genre. Just as in the 50s and the 60s, when World War II was too fresh a memory and war stories were rhetorical and unrealistic, this movie is biased by a mono dimensional description of the UN/US counter offensive in the Korean War (which easily may be too fresh a memory for people from ROK…).

This is a pity of course, because almost nothing is left of the real events (which by the way are much more interesting than the fictional ones) and the movie is not instructive at all. Unfortunately men are the same everywhere and Communists are not the only ones who cannot resist the charm of propaganda…
