YesAsia Editorial Description

Winner of Best Film at the 48th Daejong Film Awards, The Front Line brings audiences to the final battlefield of the Korean War, the mad scramble for a small scrap of land of strategic significance. Another critical and commercial success for Secret Reunion director Jang Hoon, the gritty war movie is scripted by JSA author Park Sang Yeon, and shares similar themes to JSA about camaraderie among enemies at the North-South border. As in his previous films, Jang Hoon again excels at bringing out brotherhood and humanity amid the harsh reality of war and survival. Popular actors Ko Su (White Night) and Shin Ha Kyun (Thirst) star as lieutenants on the front line, along with a cast of soldiers that includes Ryu Seung Ryong (Battlefield Heroes), Ko Chang Seok (Rough Cut), Lee Je Hoon (Bleak Night), Ryu Seung Soo (Second Half), David Lee (Poetry), and lone actress Kim Ok Bin (Thirst), who holds her own as a North Korean sniper.

A ceasefire has been declared in the final days of the Korean War, but this only marks the beginning of an endless battle to capture strategic points that will determine the future border between the two Koreas. On the front line, South and North Korean battalions fight relentlessly over a small hill that changes hands between the two sides practically everyday. In the midst of the battle, a South Korean commander is found dead, indicating there may be a mole in the company. Sent to the front to investigate the matter, intelligence officer Kang Eun Pyo (Shin Ha Kyun) is surprised to find that his old friend Kim Soo Hyuk (Ko Su) is not only leading the troops, but a far different man than the weakling he once was. Soo Hyuk and his willful unit are a strange, rule-bending bunch, and Eun Pyo soon experiences himself the futile fighting and tacit amity between soldiers on the front line, caught in a deadly war of attrition as the days count down to ceasefire.

This edition comes with the Soundtrack CD and special features including commentary, making-of, premiere, poster shoot, and trailer.

■■ 줄거리

1951년 우리가 알고 있는 한국전쟁은 끝났다.
하지만, 역사에 기록되지 못한 그들의 마지막 전투!

1953년 2월, 휴전협상이 난항을 거듭하는 가운데 아직도 교착전이 한창인 동부전선 최전방 애록고지에서 전사한 중대장의 시신에서 아군의 총알이 발견된다. 상부에서는 이번 사건을 적과의 내통과 관련되어 있음을 의심하고 방첩대 중위 ‘강은표’에게 동부전선으로 가 조사하라는 임무를 내린다.

애록고지로 향한 은표는 그 곳에서 죽은 줄 알았던 친구 ‘김수혁’을 만나게 된다. 2년 사이에 이등병에서 중위로 특진해 악어중대의 실질적 리더가 되어 있는 수혁은 뭔가 의심스러운 비밀을 간직한 듯 하다.

살아 돌아온 친구, 정체를 알 수 없는 악어중대. 이 모든 것이 혼란스러운 가운데 은표는 오직 병사들의 목숨으로만 지켜낼 수 있는 최후의 격전지 애록고지의 실체와 마주하게 되는데…

Professional Review of "The Front Line (2DVD + OST) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)"

December 8, 2011

This professional review refers to The Front Line (Blu-ray) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)
The Front Line is the latest blockbuster film to tackle the tough subject of the Korean War, this time revolving around the battle for a strategically placed hill during the final days of the conflict. Directed by the talented Jang Hoon, who debuted with the excellent Rough Cut and whose Secret Reunion was one of the best and most popular Korean hits of 2010, the film features a script by author Park Sang Yeon, best known for the Park Chan Wook helmed JSA. Dealing with similar themes of brotherhood and duty, the film has a cast of top Korean stars, headed up by Ko Su (White Night) and Shin Ha Kyun (Thirst), along with Ryu Seung Ryong (Battlefield Heroes), Ko Chang Seok (Rough Cut), Lee Je Hoon (Bleak Night), Ryu Seung Soo (Second Half) and David Lee (Poetry), with Kim Ok Bin (Thirst) as the sole female on the battlefield. The film was another huge success for Jang, scoring big at the box office and bringing home Best Film at the 48th Daejong Film Awards.

Taking place as the Korean War is drawing to a close, the film begins with Shin Ha Kyun as South Korean intelligence officer Kang Eun Pyo being sent to a hill right on the disputed new border between the North and South, where an officer has been found dead in suspicious circumstances. Charged with uncovering a North Korean mole, Eun Pyo is surprised to find the battalion guarding the hill to be a seemingly undisciplined gang of rejects, led by his old friend Kim Soo Hyuk (Ko Su), who he had thought killed in a skirmish earlier in the war. The more time he spends with the men, the more he comes to understand the horror of their situation, and despite the fact that the war is nearly over, it becomes clear that further conflict and needless sacrifice are inevitable.

Given that there have been a great many similarly themed Korean War films around of late, The Front Line was always going to need to be pretty special to stand out. Thankfully, former Kim Ki Duk protege Jang Hoon is easily one of the most interesting directors working in Korea at the moment, and he does a fantastic job of mixing commercial sensibilities with gritty depth, backed by a fantastic script from Park Sang Yeon. Whilst most such films tend to either go the route of slow motion epic action or comradely melodrama, The Front Line successfully works in a bit of both, starting off as a mystery themed character piece, Eun Pyo's investigation into the mole providing a neat introduction to the madness and moral ambiguity of the soldiers' situation. The never ending, back and forth battle for the hill makes for an apt and powerful metaphor for the insanity of war in general, a struggle for an essentially useless piece of land, which sees countless men losing their lives, used coldly as meaningless pawns by the uncaring authorities.

Through this the film explores the cost of war, not only in terms of the loss of life, but more specifically the loss of humanity, pushing the men to do whatever it takes to survive. The film is a markedly compassionate affair in this respect, taking an even handed view of the supposed enemy, making good use of a plot device which sees the two sides exchanging notes and booze through a hidden drop box. At the same time though, it never shies away from the harsh reality that the two sides are there to kill each other, hammering home during the last act in particular the cruel fact that the best anyone can really do in war is hope to survive, and that the vast majority will not - the characters often reflecting that a soldier's duty is simply to die when and how he is told. Thanks to the skilful and effective characterisation in Park's script, although the film has a large cast, most of the soldiers are recognisable and sympathetic, something which makes the incredibly harsh and bleak last act all the more hard to take.

At the same time of course, despite its determination to present war as a pointless and glory free slog through the mud, the film also packs in some very spectacular set pieces, with several breathtaking mass battle scenes as soldiers swarm towards the hill under waves of friendly fire US air bombing. These sequences inevitably result in the supporting cast being decimated, though thankfully while the film is bloody at times it steers mostly clear of Saving Private Ryan style slow motion gore and flying entrails. Jang is a director with a keen eye, and the film is visually impressive throughout, making great use of light and shadow and the changing weather to create the sense of the soldiers being trapped in a hellish purgatory of a no-man's land with little hope of escape.

Although grim, The Front Line rings tragically true, and is arguably the best of the recent bunch of epics about the Korean war and one of the very few to capture its madness without too much melodrama or showboating. Well deserving of its success, it should be enjoyed beyond fans of the genre, and sees Jang Hoon cementing his reputation as a director of the highest calibre.

another good korean war movie Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I've never been disappointed with korean war movies. This one didn't let me down either. This movie really shows the meaning of sacrifices must be made especially if the team is to survive. In this movie. A good commander is a dead commander. An endless battle over a hill that keeps exchanging ownership changes the view of soldiers longing to go home. North or south. both tired and both wanting to go home eventually find a way to share some peace with one another without ever meeting. A ceasefire agreement that isn't valid until hours before a deadly final seige. the outcome? makes you wonder if there is any difference between the separated country.
