YesAsia Editorial Description

On June 29, 2002, while all of South Korea was swept up in World Cup fever, gunfire was being exchanged at the Northern Limit Line, the de facto maritime boundary between North and South Korea in the Yellow Sea. In what is known as the Second Battle of Yeonpyeong, North Korean vessels crossed the Northern Limit Line and opened fire on South Korean patrol boats. The engagement resulted in fatalities and casualties on both sides, including the deaths of six South Korean officers stationed on the Chamsuri 357.

Directed by Kim Hak Soon (Rewind), Northern Limit Line takes audiences to Chamsuri 357 on that harrowing morning when a standard patrol turned deadly and the young soldiers onboard rose to the occasion to defend their country with their lives. Lee Hyun Woo (Secretly, Greatly), Kim Moo Yeol (War of the Arrows), Jin Gu (The Admiral: Roaring Currents), Lee Wan (Once Upon a Time in Seoul) and Lee Cheong Ah (The Five) star in the blockbuster war drama.

해군 출신 아버지의 자랑스러운 아들이자, 참수리 357호 정장 ‘윤영하’ 대위
아내의 든든한 남편이자, 참수리 357호 조타장 ‘한상국’ 하사

참수리 357호 대원들은 실전을 방불케 하는 고된 훈련 속에 서로를 의지하며 가족 같은 존재가 되어간다.

무더운 여름과 함께 월드컵의 함성이 뜨거워지는 가운데, 한국과 터키의 3, 4위전 경기가 열리던 그날, 서해 바다 한 가운데에 포성이 울리는데…

2002년 6월 29일, 월드컵의 감동의 최고조일 그때
우리가 잊고 지나간 영웅들의 이야기를 되새기다!

2002년 6월 29일, 대한민국과 터키의 월드컵 3, 4위전이 열리던 그날 오전 10시경 서해 연평도에서 북한의 등산곶 684호가 대한민국 참수리 357호 고속정을 기습 공격해 해상 전투가 발발했다. 기습 함포 공격을 시작으로 상호간 치열한 격전이 약 30분간 진행되었다. 30분간의 전투 끝에 대한민국은 20여 명의 사상자가 발생했고 참수리 357호 고속정이 침몰했다.

영화 <연평해전>은 단순한 영화, 그 이상의 의미를 갖는다. “이 전투로 인해서 희생 당한 사람들과 유가족 분들에 대한 생각이 깊어졌다. 이 영화를 하면서 자신이 태어난 나라에 대한 애정과 사랑, 관심을 우리가 다 같이 소중하게 간직해야 한다는 것을 많이 느꼈다”라는 김학순 감독의 이야기처럼 영화 <연평해전>은 잊혀져 가는 역사의 한 페이지를 되살려 많은 사람들에게 알릴 수 있는 뜻 깊은 기회이기도 한 것임과 동시에 우리가 잊고 지나간 영웅들의 이야기를 되새기는 중요한 자료가 될 것이다.

휴먼 감동 실화 <연평해전>은 스크린과 브라운관, 무대 위를 넘나들며 도전을 멈추지 않는 배우 김무열, 진구, 이현우의 만남으로 이목을 집중시켰다. 가슴을 울리는 탄탄한 시나리오에 반해 출연을 결심한 세 배우의 모습은 실제 성격과도 닮아 있는 캐릭터와 환상의 조화를 이루며 관객들에게 감동을 전달한다.

Professional Review of "Northern Limit Line (DVD) (Normal Edition) (Korea Version)"

February 4, 2016

This professional review refers to Northern Limit Line (Blu-ray) (Korea Version)
Northern Limit Line, directed by Kim Hak-soon (Rewind) is a blockbuster focusing on the Second Battle of Yeonpyeong, a 2002 incident which saw North and South Korea facing off in a bloody sea battle in the disputed area of the title. The film had a long and troubled production history which resulted in it taking some seven years to make it to the big screen, largely due to a third of its budget having to be raised by a Kickstarter campaign after the original investors dropped out. The effort paid off in the end, as the film was not only critically praised, winning several nominations at the Grand Bell Awards, but pulled in over six million admissions during the usually quiet June period, marking it as one of the year's biggest hits.

Starring Lee Hyun-woo (Secretly, Greatly), Kim Moo-yeol (War of the Arrows), Jin Gu (The Admiral: Roaring Currents), Lee Wan (Once Upon a Time in Seoul) and Lee Cheong-ah (The Five), the film takes place in June 2002, a time when the entire South Korean nation was caught up with the Korea Japan World Cup, following a young bunch of soldiers tasked with routine patrols of the Northern Limit Line marking the maritime boundary with the north in the Yellow Sea. Things turn unexpectedly serious one morning when a pair of military boats from the north cross the line and open fire, forcing the inexperienced crew of the Chamsuri 357 to dig deep and find the courage to fight back and defend their country.

Northern Limit Line is quite different to the usual war blockbuster, and although it does have all the expected nationalistic bluster, Kim Hak-soon clearly tries to focus on the lives of the young soldiers, the first two thirds of the film spending most of its time following them about their everyday lives, dipping in and out of subplots and relationships. This works well enough, although some of the social nuances are likely to be a bit lost on non-Korean audiences, and the characters are generally convincing and likeable, the film winning points for avoiding any obvious hero figures. At the same time however, while there's something to be said for this level of character investment, the first two acts are overstretched, clocking in at well over an hour, and the film does have the feel of a TV special during several stretches, meaning that the attention of some viewers may wander.

Thankfully this does pay off during the last forty five minutes or so, when Kim really kicks things up several notches, and the film gets surprisingly bloody and harrowing once the maritime battle begins. Blessed with some impressive production values, the film successfully achieves a balance between the spectacular and the gritty, considerable effort having gone into depicting the terrifying realities of conflict, which are hammered home through some shocking and visceral scenes that do a great job of putting the viewer in the shoes of the understandably confused and terrified young mean. These scenes are well-shot and never gratuitous, and while most viewers likely won't care too much about the individual fates of the characters, there's real tension as they're put through the wringer, and a considerable gut-punch when some of them meet their grisly ends. This combines well with the earlier stages of the film to underline the pointlessness of war theme that Kim is aiming for, and does so without ever getting too preachy or heavy-handed.

Though this isn't quite enough to make Northern Limit Line a truly great film, it's arguably one of the better and more thoughtful war-themed offerings from Korea of late, and an effective statement about the ways in which everyday people inevitably end up bearing the brunt of such conflicts. Kim Hak-soon directs with a steady hand, and while some judicious trimming and editing would definitely have improved matters, there's still enough here to engage and entertain.
