    I saw it last night, great movie!
    But, some parts were just too frustrating to watch... some of the actions that the characters took were just too hard to believe, and sometimes it seemed a bit dorky. I mean, don't get me wrong, those negatives was just a little part of the movie. But I guess I feel this way because of the difference in cultures, i'm sure it has to do alot with Korean mentality that I know nothing about.
    Anyways, i'm sure many of you have seen it , if not, please do, its an awsome war movie!
    Btw, who is the girl in the beginning of the movie, she plays the granddaughter of Jin-Seok... God, she's fvcking gorgeous! Any other good movies that she's in that I can watch? :)

    Dont mean to sound cold but you wont be seeing her in anything new.

    She committed suicide about three months ago for reasons still unclear.

    No joke...sorry. Her mom is a gambling addict. Spent every thing she made in the movies.

    Forgot her name. Somebody here will probably chime in with it though.

    That was the Jin-Seok's love interest too by the way...not the direct grandaughter.

    Nah, that's someone else. The one who committed suicide is Lee Eun-Joo, and the one perutyu is talking about is Jo (Cho) Yun-Hee, if I remember correctly. Unless Jo also committed suicide a couple of months ago, which I could've missed.

    i saw this movie six months ago and i thought it was pretty good. the granddaughter in the beginning is really hot. but like peruytu said, i thought there were some goofy parts in the movie. the look of the movie and special effects were really good, but i couldnt get over all the overacting in the movie. specially the fat soldier who eats with rice all over his face was really annoying. he just way over did his part. and some parts of the storyline i thought were a little too far fetched. too many coincidences for it to be convinceable.

    Does any Korean movie ends in happy ending? All the ones I've watched were heartbreakers: Taeguki, Failan, Silmido, etc.. I am addicted to being happy all the time and these Korean movies are making me watch 007 movies to recover from these tear jerkers.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I loved this movie.

    I think we all knew that this was gonna have a sad ending even before we sat down in the theater. It's a war movie. Of course it's gonna be sad. I'm sure all of the regular posters here know someone who experienced a lot of the things that happened in this movie.

    Perutyu,

    I thought this movie was over-rated. If you want good Korean cinema, check out Old Boy (or Silmido if you like that war-related action flick).

    Amusing how powerful that movie was. That flick single-handedly defined the symbol and epitome of what all Korean males want in a female (from attitude to looks and even hair style) by casting Jeon Ji-hyeon. And she still carries that exact same image. Even to this day.

    Well, she is changing her image somewhat though, seeing from her latest ads.

    Thanks for the heads up! I'll mark it down in my "to watch" list.

    Personaly, I don't think the movie is over rated, then again, this is probably the only 3rd Korean movie i've ever watched... so I can't compare it to others. I'm an open minded person, so when I heard about this movie I was instantly attracted at the fact that it was a war movie and the special effects were "a la Saving Private Ryan" (i'm a war movie buff). As i've mentioned before, this movie did have its dorky parts, but overall it is a good "war movie." But now that you mention Silmido, i'll definately check that out. Thanks!

    I really liked and was impressed by JSA as well. Definitely a movie worth checking out - but the impact maybe less for a non-Korean, I concede.

    My Sassy girl have got to be the scariest movie ever. I couldn't even look at a Korean girl for few days after watching that movie. That girl in that movie was scary (but good acting i guess). :mad:

    Old Boy is really good movie. I forgot that old actor's name but man, he was really good. I like the beginning of the movie when he was in the police station, cursing out the police officers and going nuts. :D

    I also forgot the title of this movie, but it's a movie about wrestling. This guy who works in a bank, gets fired. So he starts to take wrestling lessons, hoping he can become a wrestler. That fat popular comedian guy is also in that movie. Anyone know the title of the movie i'm talking about?

    I have got to watch Taeguki, i still haven't watched it yet.
