Brotherhood Of War Script



Memorial site for souls

lost in the Korean war.



We're contacting the families of those

we have identified. We'll call soon.



- Who has Lee Jin-seok's file?

- I do. Why?



I checked the list of

remains and the photos.



- He is not listed as dead or missing.

- Nor on the survivors' list?



Lee Jin-seok...



List of survivors.

Is he still alive?



Grandpa! The Army Headquarters

is on the phone.



- Hello?

- I work at the war excavation site.



I'm calling

to confirm some information.



Are you the Lee Jin-seok, who

fought in the battle of Dumillyong?



Yes, that's correct.



We have identified

the remains of Lee Jin-seok.



Have you?

But I am Lee Jin-seok.



Could it be the remains of my brother?

Of Lee Jin-tae?



No, this is definitely Lee Jin-seok.



I'm sorry I bothered you.



We've probably got

someone with the same name.



What did they say?

Was it about your brother?



I thought so,

since it was a call from the army.



Can I give you a hand

in the garden, Grandpa?



Could you give me a lift?



I can give him a lift.



Don't worry, Mom.



- Mom is worried. It is cold there.

- I'll call her later.



You got sick after your trip to China

to look for your brother.



Why don't you go start the car?



Make sure you've got ID.

It's a restricted area.



Don't worry.

I've got enough ID.



Are you going to wear your sneakers?

I'll shine your shoes instead.



Seoul,     .



Shoe shine!



Shoe shine!



Shoe shine!



- Shoe shine!

- Shoe shine!



- Shoe shine!

- Shoe shine!



Those in the middle

come from Italy.



- They are beautiful.

- A work of art.



High heels

and the stitching is superb.



I prefer flat shoes.



- They seem more comfortable.

- Really?



- You could make even better ones.

- It would take a few more years.



I will be so proud when you

have a shop like this some day.



- Why did you buy it?

- I thought you wanted one.



- You look great.

- Thanks, my brother.



Ice cream! Ice cream!






- Give me a real cold one.

- Don't you want two?



- One is enough.

- Alright. Here's a nice and cold one.



- There you go.

- You've already spent too much.



- Don't you want one?

- I don't want my teeth to rot.



- How much is it?

-   won. Have a nice day.



- Have some. It's melting.

- No way.



Jin-tae! The tram!



- Where are you going?

- We have to go home.



- I've done my homework.

- I'll teach you something new.



See you!






- You haven't finished yet?

- What does it look like? We're busy.



- Jin-seok is here, too.

- Hello, Young-shin!



Stop that.

I'll put some in a bowl.



I told you not to do that.

Come here.



Come on!

I'm not a child.



How are you?



Where did you get the barley?



I got it for signing up

to attend some kind of rally.



Barley for my name is a good deal.

Mom should have done the same.



- Nothing is ever free.

- I could kill for free food.



Close the shop.

Father's waiting.



Dad, Jin-seok aced his last exam.



He will make

your dream come true.



Help him get accepted

to the college of Seoul next year.



And make sure he's in good health.

He was very sick last spring.



Yes, but I'm fine now.



Mom says you should come in.



Do you remember her, Dad?

She's marrying Jin-tae this autumn.



Mom's worried about such a nice

girl marrying such a rough boy.



I'd have made you so proud...



The children must

be hungry now, Mom.



Jin-seok, let's clear the table.

- Go and help mom.



Open the pot!






Take this. I made it from my skirt.

Don't lose it.



- What did you like the most?

- The meat!



- The cookies.

- The fruit.



Let's go for a swim in the stream.



No, it's too late.

We need to go home.



But tomorrow's Sunday.

We don't need to go to school.



It's too hot to go to bed.



- No...

- Please, pretty please...



You look so happy.



I wish every day was like this.

No more, no less.



I know. Jin-tae is a bit rough,

but he has a warm heart.



Don't worry. It's not cold.

Shall I show you?



Why are you changing the heels?

The high ones look great.



They look great.

Are you going to sell them?



Do you want to buy them?



If the price is right.



You'll never have enough money

to buy those shoes.



Why is this pronunciation

different from the spelling?



- Don't ask me about that.

- Don't you know second grade stuff?



- Shut up and go get more shoes.

- Okay, I was going to.



- Will you teach me maths today?

- Why aren't you at the library?



Haven't you heard what's happened?



A war has broken out.



Any soldiers on leave

are to report for duty right away.



This morning, the North Korean

puppet regime attacked South Korea-



- but our courageous troops

are forcing them to retreat.



Citizens should not be deceived-



- by the groundless propaganda

of the north.



- What's all this? Are we moving?

- We have to take these things.



Only food and clothes, I told you.

Uncle's home is too far. Leave it.



- No! I'll carry them!

- We can't carry all these things.



- I'll carry them! I'll carry them all!

- Don't be stupid.



- I told you I will.

- We'll be back soon.



How can you know?

No one knows what will happen.



The shop is just starting to do well.



Someone will take it

while we are gone.



What about the kim-chi pots

I buried? And the vegetable garden?



They'll be fine until we get back.



- What if you're drafted?

- Only if they need their boots shined.



We have to hurry.

The streets are packed with refugees.



Hurry, Young-ja.






- Mom says we should stay together.

- Young-min can sit here.



Hold on tight.



- We won't be long.

- Hurry, Jin-seok!



- Hold hands tightly.

- Young-ja!



Dae-gu, July     .



Why the hell is that train

just standing there?



I've told you,

there are no trains for civilians.



- Sorry. Where can I find a pharmacy?

- I don't know.



Let's go to the front

and destroy the communists!



We've got to protect our country.



- We can't go by train.

- What about the one over there?



- It's off to the front. Is Jin-tae back?

- Not yet.



Jin-tae will be back

with some medicine in a minute.



This is an official request.



All men between the ages of

   and    have to step forward.



All men between    and   .

Come up here!



What's going on?



- When were you born?

- In     .



All men between    and   

please step forward.



- How old are you?

-   .



- Come with us.

- What's happening?



You don't need to follow their orders.



Don't worry. I guess

they want to ask some questions.



Come on, let's go.



Everything will be fine.

I'm still a student.



- No, Jin-seok!

- You aren't allowed to go!



Don't worry. It'll be fine.



- Give this to Young-min. What's up?

- Jin-seok...



The soldiers took him

and all the other young men.



We'll go!

We'll fight and we'll win!



We were brave students.

Now we are brave soldiers.



We love our country,

that's why we leave to fight.



- Where are you going?

- I'm looking for my brother.



You can't come in here.

You have to leave.



- Jin-seok!

- Big brother!



Let's go.

This isn't the train to uncle's home.



The train is about to leave. Sit down.



My brother got on the wrong train.

We're getting off.



- I said sit down.

- This must be a mistake.



We're refugees, not soldiers.



- You've just been drafted, too.

- Who will look after my mother? You?



- Sit down! It's an order.

- Soldiers obey orders. We're leaving.



I told you to sit down!



You must be mistaken.

Why can't you understand...



Get off, Jin-seok! Now!



Get off, Jin-seok! Now!



My brother has a heart condition.

He can't even run.



In a war, only people without arms

or legs are called patients.






- Mom! Young-shin!

- Jin-seok! Jin-tae!



Go to uncle's home. We'll meet there.

I'll look after Jin-seok.



- What happened to your face?

- Take care of mom.



Don't worry about us.

Take care of yourselves!



You have to come back.



Help me.



Bloody communists...



- Kim Ki-tae?

- Yes, sir!



- Lee Jin-seok?

- That's me.



- Excuse me, can I have a word?

- Go ahead.



This is my younger brother.

Please let us stay together.



He's only a student

and knows nothing about war.






This is the Nak-dong River

and our last line of defense.



If this place is taken, Pusan is next.

Then we can only retreat into the sea.



If you retreat,

I'll kill you myself.



This is where we live or die.



Make your wills. Write down

what you leave behind. Got it?






Damn young punk. What does

he know about death and wills?



- Let's say hello. I'm Yong-man.

- Lee Jin-tae.



Are you two related?



- He's my older brother.

- Are you brothers? Damn.



I thought they

could only take one per family.



How is your name going to live on?

Through the nation?



Those bastards!

Forget the will! Forget it!



You never know

when you'll see food next.



Eat this shit.

Just call me uncle Yang.



He's the oldest. He's a self-proclaimed

fortuneteller, but he's never right.



Welcome. Never take your helmets off.



Many get their heads

blown off while sleeping.



I'm Sergeant Lee. I hate anything red,

especially the reds.



My name is Tae-soo. I escaped from

the north, but I'm not a communist.



I'm Seung-chul. I was a student,

but I volunteered to fight.



- Say "hello", PFC Jo.

- Why? We'll be dead soon, anyway.



I'm Young-goo.

Just call me Radio man.



I'm Kim Cheol-soo, but call me Ban.



How will I be able to fight

when all I get to eat is shit?



No water or soup at all?

There's so damn little of it.



Don't you want it? Give it to me.



Eat it.






Stay here.



I told you to stay there.






Hang on, Jin-seok!

It's your big brother!



Keep breathing.

You have to!



Breathe! Breathe!

You can do it!



Breathe out.



More, more!

Breathe in!



Deeper, deeper, Jin-seok.

You will be okay.



You have to

send my brother to hospital.



I'll blow up their tanks

and bring you their commanders.



I'll even carry a bomb

into their camp.



We have one who's an epileptic.

Another one has tuberculosis.



A third one is rheumatic, another has

heart disease. And one more with TB.



Do you want to know about the rest?

Should I send them all? Who'd fight?



On the battlefield, life and death cross

every second. Anything can happen.



If you do what you've just said,

I may be able to send him home.



I'd do anything.



That's the spirit. With such enthusiasm

you should fight for your country.



Give to your country

before asking favors.



Just so you know,

it has been done before.



A father made sure

his son was sent home.



Do you want to know how?



Wills are for dying people.



You've got to be strong.



I wish this was all a dream.



I want to wake up in my room.



I'd tell you about this

over breakfast.



I'd say I had such a strange dream.



Then I'd go to school-



- and you and Mom

would go to work.



Don't worry.

We will be just fine.



Urgent call from

the battalion bunker.



 nd and  rd have lost their positions.



- Wake them up!

- Yes, sir.



Get up!

Get up, everybody!



Area     and     have

fallen into the enemy's hands.



Additionally, our supply route

has been cut off.



That means we're isolated.



Remove all the stones.

They're shrapnel waiting to happen.



Area     and     are gone.

We're next.



Those bastards

will destroy us like dogs.



There will be no one left to bury us.



Let the communists come.

I'll kill them all.



Attention! Sergeant Huh,

Koh Yong-man, Lim Tae-soo, Yang-



- and Lee Seung-chul.

Get your weapons and come with me.



We are going to plant mines

along the defense line.



- That's right under their noses.

- So what?



- Do I have to come?

- I'll go as well.



We'll take Jin-tae with us instead.

The rest of you - back to business.



Yes, sir.



Damn! I always

get the shitty jobs.



The communists will come any minute.



They are slaughtering the families

of soldiers and cops.



That's why we've

got to win this war.



If we lose, the communists will kill us.

We need to win to survive.



- Win how? By eating mud?

- Get back to work.



Get down!



Yang and I will go get him.

Cover us!






- Only a few left. Let's finish them.

- No! Retreat now!



He was hit in the stomach

and stepped on a mine.



Hold him tight!



- He needs to get to hospital.

- That's impossible. Stitch him up.



- Hurry up!

- Stitch him up, or he'll die.






Lee Jin-tae...



I'll kill you if you do that again.



One more minute,

and he could have died. Got it?



Why did you go for that mission?



You weren't on the list,

but you volunteered for it.



I don't understand why you did that.



- It was my decision.

- What if that had been you?



Promise me you won't

do that again. Promise!






All I need is water.



Why the hell

are they playing that music?



They know we are isolated.

They want to drive us crazy.



Remember the ice cream?

It was so good.



Back home, you can eat it

till your teeth go numb.



I wonder what mom

and Young-shin are doing.



I bet...



...that Mom is really

worried about us.



- Uncle is taking good care of them.

- I miss them all.



Young-guk, Young-ja, Young-min...



I should have set the dog free.



- Seung-chul, what's wrong?

- Make him lie down.



Uncle Yang... My stomach hurts.



Don't worry. You'll be okay.



Where's my leg?



Do you call yourself a doctor?

Can't you see the maggots?



What's this? Food?



Damn! About time!

Give us more!



Stop, you bastards!

My ears are exploding!



Do you want to give up

the Nak-dong River?



Seung-chul... Put it down.



Why couldn't you wait

just a little longer?




Go back to the trench.



- Are we going to die here like dogs?

- Starve to death or shot to death.



- Who says we're going to die?

- They haven't fed us in days.



- We'll die an honorable death, then.

- Soldiers are human, too.



- What's the honor in starving?

- Shut up!



You'd go to them

for a piece of bread.



- Rather that than starve.

- I'll kill you before you get there.



Surrendering is better

than starving like an animal.



Who gives a shit who wins?



- Are we killing for an ideology?

- Are you finished?



This is totally different

from our fight against Japan.



Damn communist!



Damn communist!



Damn communist!



Take it easy!



- The communists killed his family.

- But I didn't do it.



This is not a circus!

Go back to the bunker!



Is this it?



- Let's attack them.

- We're so weak we can't lift our guns.



Soon we'll be eating corpses.

Or surrender to the commies.



They wouldn't expect us

to attack them.



We've got nothing to lose, do we?

Let's go and wipe them out.



- I will fight.

- Me, too!



- I'll fight!

- Count me in!



I want to fight!



One mistake can kill us all.



Sir! Let us die together!



I don't understand

why I'm out of the mission.



- You are not qualified.

- I am. Let me join them!



- It's too late.

- I'm begging you. I want to fight, too.



Your brother begged me to sit you out

and now you want to go.



What are you risking your life for?



- You need a medal, too?

- What medal, sir?









Please don't kill me.



I'm only   . I just got drafted.

Please don't kill me.




Where are you going?



If they take this bunker,

we are finished.



How could those

starving bastards attack us?



You are lucky to be alive.



Big brother!



Big brother!



Are you okay?

Good. Let's go get some water.



Big brother...



Why do you volunteer

for every single risky mission?



For a medal...



To send me home?



What the hell are you doing?

Do you think you are bullet proof?



Every second I see someone killed.

Are you mad?



Suppose you get a medal.

Would I go home happy with you dead?



How could I face

Mom and Young-shin?



- You are still young and ill.

- But I'm a soldier now.



Don't ask them to sit me out again.

We should live and die together.



If you do this again,

I'll never forgive you.



Don't get me wrong,

but no one knows who'll die next.



If I can live staying behind,

I'll stay behind.



- You have to understand.

- No way! Should I just watch you die?



I won't die until

I've made sure you get home.



- Let's go.

- Jin-tae!



You know,

I want both of us to survive.



But if only one of us get to,

I want it to be you.



Are you alright?



You all did a greatjob.



Besides our victory,

I've got great news.



The U.S. marines have landed

successfully at Inchon.



We'll push forward as they make

the second attack into Inchon.



Your bravery exemplifies

the men in this battalion.



Raise this flag at Mt. Baekdu

by the Chinese border.



Sergeant Lee Jin-tae!



Don't move!

We'll take some pictures.



Why were two brothers fighting?



We had no other choice

but to volunteer...


            order to protect

our country from danger.



We heard you did

a greatjob at Nak-dong River.



Any other motivation

for fighting so bravely?



My only motivation as a soldier...


            to prevent my family from

suffering under communist oppression.



I'm sending a letter.

What do you want me to write?



- We have to send it with a local.

- Do I have to do it now?



- Later. I've got to go to the reception.

- We'll ask someone in the street.



Write something for me.

See you!



Give me some eggs!

- Behave yourself!



Come on... An egg!



Is there anyone here

from Manri-dong?



Anyone living in Manri-dong?



I can't remember

the last time I ate like this.



Nothing but vegetables.

Where's my egg?



Do you know if Jin-tae

is really going to be on TV?



You saw the American officers

and all the cameras flashing.



That's Sergeant Lee as of today.

And he's squad leader of the   st.



He spoke well. "For the families

oppressed by the reds..."



Are you jealous?

Kill some communists, then.



He sure does have

a face made for TV.



What do you know

about being photogenic?



He is nothing compared to this.



Damn, what a knock-out!



How did you get a wife like this?



I told you to look at my son, not

my wife. You looked at her breasts!



My son will be a general

like MacArthur one day.



When will this damn war be over?

I thought it'd last a week.



When you get home,

you'll go back to school.



It won't be long,

now that the Americans are here.



You don't live far, do you?



If your mom's back in Seoul,

she'll be looking for you.



Have as many as you want!



- Congratulations.

- Thanks.




Do you know what this is?



It is the chocolate

you wanted so much.



Just tell me if you want more.



I just need to ask,

and they'll give me more.



Yes, I have been drinking.



Don't worry.

You'll be home soon.



It's only a matter of days

before I put this flag on Mt. Baekdu.



You should be sleeping.



It will get rough from now on.



- Did you send the letter?

- I asked someone.



I don't think

they're back in Seoul.



It will be cold tonight.

You should go inside.



You felt like a stranger tonight.



I have been thinking a lot today.



There's one thing I want to ask you.



Please forget about the medal.

It's not worth it.



You are the only brother I have...



And we both have to go back alive.



I remember when dad died

when I was seven years old-



- and Mom was so shocked

that she stopped talking.



You helped me get through it all.



And after tomorrow...



You were supposed to

get married to Young-shin...



I hope you think about Young-shin...



...Young-guk, Young-ja and Young-min,

and notjust of me.



Pyongyang, North Korea.

October     .



The commies are hitting back hard.

Where's their captain?



Cover me!



- A few more up there.

- I saw them.



- Cover me.

- It's too dangerous.



Get down!



- What is it?

- Come with me.



- Their captain is escaping.

- The  rd platoon is here for that.



- The  rd is waiting on the way out.

- This is an order.



Don't go!






Sergeant Lee!



Sergeant Lee!



Damned dog!



Damned dog!



- Don't move!

- Shoot me!



- Do you think I'll talk?

- Get up!



Yong-man, hang on!



Am I going to die?






Yong-man, don't give up.

I won't let you go!



He is the captain.



I got him!



- Yong-man, hang on!

- Come on.







We'll continue to Aprok River

near the Chinese border.



I hope every one of you

will get there alive. Let's leave.



What's wrong?



The medal...

Who are you really doing this for?



You love being a hero, don't you?

Promotions, parties, interviews...



Who knows, you might even become

a battalion commander one day.



Keep this in mind.



Yong-man's son, Min-seok,

will grow up without his father-



- and bear a grudge

against you forever.



- Stop it.

- lf you had listened back there...



...he wouldn't be dead.



Do you know why he died? What he

was doing while he was dying?



What good is a medal

when people have to die for it?



Not another word.



What the...



The communists have slaughtered

all the villagers.



Report to headquarters.



Let's take care of the bodies.



Please, help me find my mom.



Don't cry.

I'll help you.






They have even left booby traps.



Don't let any of those bastards live!



Damned communist!






You dirty pawn

of American imperialism!



Please, don't kill me!

Don't kill me!



Line up against the wall.



- Hey, you!

- I surrender.



- How many are in there?

- Five.



They'll come out, too.

Please don't kill us.



- You killed them, didn't you?

- They were already dead.



- One more lie and I'll kill you.

- Don't shoot.



- Did you kill them?

- Don't shoot!



- Yong-seok!

- Jin-seok!



- What's happened?

- They'd kill me unless I joined.



It's over now.

Don't cry.



Drink this.



Should I report this?






Report that the enemy was killed

in battle. They'd be excess baggage.



This is Yong-seok.

He was like your own brother.



All I see is a communist.



It's me, your friend Yong-seok.



No friend of mine

slaughters my people.



- We're not communists!

- He was forced to come here.



- Did you kill them?

- No, we didn't. Really.



- He says he didn't.

- I don't trust communists.



- Please don't kill me!

- Get your hands off!



- You dirty pig!

- Don't kill me!



Go ahead and I'll report

that you kill unarmed soldiers.



You're no better

than commies killing civilians.



You are all crazy.

They are prisoners.



You saw what they did.

They are animals.



- lf we kill them, we're animals too.

- They started the war.



We're just like them.

No better, no worse.



Okay, kill them.




What are you waiting for?




Today's your lucky day.



Hye-San-Jin, northern North Korea.

November,     .



- Yong-seok.

- Jin-seok.



Take it.



Boys, have some.



- Are you okay?

- I feel fine.



Take your time.



I filed a report about you

with the regimental office today.



Jin-tae... He is not who he was.

He's so changed.



Before I left,

I met your mom and Young-shin.



Really? How are they?

When did they come back?



Just after you were drafted.



She wanted to be home

in case you got back.



She asked people about you.



Whenever she saw me, she cried.

I reminded her of you two.



- And the noodle cart?

- Frankly, she isn't well.



What's wrong?

Is she seriously ill?



I'm not quite sure,

but she couldn't move well.



Young-shin was having a hard time

taking care of everybody.



The commies

wouldn't let her run the stand.



She attends rallies all day long.

It's the only way to get food.



Don't worry, though.

Things may be getting better.



I miss the noodles your mom cooks.



The loser doesn't eat for two days.



Do it right, bastards.



Two days aren't bad enough?

Do you want five?



Aren't you hungry?



Think of him

as a South Korean pig.



Who's going to be

the damn South Korean?



- You do it!

- You don't need to.



You don't have to.

- It's you and me now.



Fight, or you'll die of starvation.



- Stop it!

- Come on, you son of a bitch.



Come on!



There you go. That's the way!



We're not done yet!



We fight until one of us is down.



- You're killing him.

- Let go!



If anyone tries to stop me,

I'll kill you, too!



Get up,

or you'll starve to death.



Fight, or you're dead!



I said fight, you pig!



Many of our brave soldiers

sacrificed their lives for their country-



- and the long awaited victory

is very close.



- Stay still!

- It hurts!



When the hell can we go home?



General MacArthur has ordered

UN forces to advance to the north.



The victory is ours!






Let's kick some ass!



It looks as if the war

may be over soon.



- Maybe. The Chinese back the north.

- That's just commie propaganda.



Uncle Yang, what do you think?



The Sunspot and Great Bear

are losing energy now, and...



We'll be home before the New Year.



- Are you sure this time?

- What the hell...!



Okay, I believe you.



Jin-tae! Congratulations!



He was awarded the Medal of Honor.



I thought you'd get it.



You got it for catching

their captain alive.



- What is that Medal of Honor?

- Idiot!



Any time "honor" is in the name,

it's good.



Tomorrow the commander

will award it himself.



Let's give him a big hand!



Now you can be a soldier for ever.






- We've got to talk.

- Make it short. I'm on duty.



Soon you can go home and

go to school. You missed a lot already.



You are the one that should go home.

You're sick. I'm not going home.



- You do as I tell you.

- I don't want anything from you.



What's wrong with you?



I worked my ass off for that medal.

It's a great chance for both of us.



For you, maybe.

Not for me.



- Do you realize what it means?

- I wanted one to send you home.



That medal cost Yong-man his life.

I'm not going.



- You have to go to college.

- Why? I hate everything you stand for.



- Don't tell me what to do.

- Do you really mean that?



I make my own decisions.

Don't tell me what to do.



- Do you want either of us to die?

- You go home instead.



- What did I risk my life for?

- I never asked you to.



I want... you to get home alive.



I want to go home, too, you know.



But you are

our family's hope and dream.



I never regretted giving up school

and shining shoes for you.



Mom happily bust her back for you.

Do you know what we have sacrificed?



I know it all. Why am I

the only one you think about?



If you'd thought about Young-shin and

Yong-man, you couldn't have done it.



I don't care what you think,

as long as you can go home.



The command post will leave first.

Take the classified, burn the rest.



One more telegram:

"Retreat to  nd rendezvous point."



Regiments       and   

are already retreating.



How many Chinese troops are coming?



For Woon-san city alone,

at least       .



Hurry! They're getting close.



What are you doing, sergeant Lee?



What the hell! It was going so well.



We'll never get home

before New Year's.



Are we just going to leave?

Shouldn't we die here?



We should fight instead.



Stop bitching and hurry up!



I wanted to believe your shit,

but look at this!



Get the jeep ready!



How far do we have to carry them?



Don't move!



Get him!



- Sergeant Huh!

- I'm alright. Retreat.






The bastards.



Where's my arm?



Stay back, or I'll kill him!



Kill him!



Don't come any closer...



Shoot them!



Let him go!



Any closer and this bastard is dead.






Yong-seok! Yong-seok!



Are you crazy?



How could you?



You bastard!



Stop this!



Bring him back!

You're a murderer!






What the hell are you doing?



Stop it, both of you!



We've got to get out.



How come we're retreating

without fighting?



Jang-Dan, near the   th parallel.

December     .



"You're awarded the Medal of Honor

for your actions in Pyongyang"-



- "your remarkable bravery

and actions at many battles"-



- "and going beyond the call of duty.

President Rhee Syngman."



- Sergeant Lee Jin-tae!

- Congratulations! You finally made it.



Sorry. There should have been

a formal ceremony.



  st battalion,

proceed to the  rd rendezvous point.



 nd,  rd and  th battalions

to the  th rendezvous point.



Be in position

by      hours tomorrow.



All forces will be reorganized there.




See you at the next place.



Sir, may I have a word with you?

It's about my brother.



I'll make an official request

with the division commander.



Thank you, sir.



- I'm afraid we're going towards Seoul.

- Further south, across Nak-dong River.



- Do you know where Jin-seok is?

- He left a minute ago.



- On his own?

- He was going to see your mom.



She's sick.



Let's go!












Thank God you're alive.

This isn't a dream, is it?



I met Yong-seok.

He said Mom was sick.



She's much better now.

She's back at work.



How is Jin-tae?

Why isn't he here?



He's fine.

He's really busy right now.



Good. Mother is so worried.



- Are you Kim Young-shin?

- Yes I am, but...?



- Come. You're under investigation.

- Why?



- What?

- Who are you?



- Tell me what this is about.

- Step away!



- Stop!

- Shoot if you dare.



Put her on the back.

Take this bastard as well.



Young-guk, go home!

Don't follow me!



Get off!



- What is this place?

- Where we investigate commies.



- You're making a mistake.

- We'll see about that.



Lee Jung-ja, Jung Kook-sup

and Kim Young-shin.






Don't even think about it.

Let's not hurt one another.



- Get up, Young-shin.

- Jin-tae...



Where is Jin-seok?



- He was taken into the front building.

- What's going on here?



They said I was under investigation

and brought me here.



We're executing traitors

according to the law.



I don't care what you do.

I'm taking her.



- Then you're also a communist.

- Hardly.



Kim Young-shin joined

the Communist party on June   .



We've got her signature.



I did it for food.

I didn't know what it was.



She worked for the party    times

and participated in numerous rallies.



We were starving!

I had to get food somehow.



The South Korean government

gave us nothing.



Shut up. - Step away.



- Don't be stupid.

- You're dead, too.



- lf you touch her, you're all dead!

- Last warning. Step aside.



Don't move!



- Or I'll kill you.

- Do you know what you're doing?



I'm stopping you from killing

innocent civilians. - Get her out.



Are you saving a whore? She's slept

with every single North Korean officer.



- Shut up! I'll blow your head off.

- That's why she hasn't fled.



- It's not true.

- Don't try to deny it.



- It's a lie!

- Go now!



I'm warning you for the last time.

If you take her, you're commies too.



Jin-tae, believe me.



Get the hell out of here.



Hold on.



Young-shin, hold on.



You've still got the handkerchief...



You have no idea

how much I've missed you.



I never did anything shameful.

You've got to believe me.






I can't...



...die now.



How can I...



...die now?









Why did you question her?



You know you killed her.



You killed her, you murderer...



You are crazy...



You shot members

of the Anti-communist federation?



Your medal of honor doesn't give you

the right to just shoot people.



How can we fight this war

with screw-ups like you?



- Have you contacted headquarters?

- I'm still trying.



How can we hold out for

   hours with such losers?



Send my brother home.



My former commander promised to.



What bullshit is that?



You earn a damn medal

and your brother is discharged?



- You only have to report it.

- I don't believe this.



I don't give a shit

what he's promised you.



Do you think this is

a business deal or something?



- He started it.

- How dare you speak back?



Think of what you have done.

What a waste of medals.



Message from the   st company.



Put him in the cell!



I don't give a shit about the order!

Just retreat!



I'll take responsibility!

All companies, retreat!



- Open the cell.

- You're crazy!



- Give the order!

- Those commies will kill you first.



- I just want my brother out.

- Not until we've investigated you.



Give the order! Now!



One more thing.

The hostages... Burn them!



- Change that order!

- Put your gun down.



- It's an order. Put your gun down.

- Change the order!



Lee Jin-tae!



Military hospital, Tae-Jeon.

South Korea, July     .






- You look well.

- Thanks. You saved my life.



I thought I'd die in that cell.



I did too as you got shot

on the way out.



Someone up there likes you.



- When will you get out of here?

- Next week.



How nice to be discharged.



I bet your mom needs your help.



This damn war should be over by now.



The battle around the   th parallel

is still bloody.



Every day so many lives are lost

but we can't take any ground.



I bought these on the way.



Thanks again.



Your brother sent...



...this letter home,

but it was returned to the camp.



I doubt he retreated then.

I've searched everywhere, but...



I don't want to know. I don't care.



PFC Lee Jin-seok!

You have a visitor!



Our decorated hero

has turned into a communist.



It's a problem for us...



...and good propaganda for them.

- At first we didn't believe it.



But his fiancée

was executed as a communist.



- He knows nothing about communism.

- How did he turn into one?



He wouldn't have done this

if he'd thought of his family.



You too are a suspect unless

you can give us a good explanation.



I don't care about Jin-tae.



The Jin-tae I knew was just

an innocent shoeshine boy-



- who loved his family,

especially his brother.



The one who's got the medal

and leads flag unit is not my brother.



What happened to Jin-tae?

I was questioned, too.



- Do you want lunch?

- How can you think about food?




Jin-tae's become a communist?



After seeing his fiancée

shot to death, and then...



He must have thought

that you were killed in the fire.



He loved you so much.



I don't care about him!



He only cares about

medals and promotion.



Maybe the damn commies

offered him a better post.



Dear mother,

I miss you every day.



Don't worry about Jin-seok.



I'll definitely make sure he's safe.



Please say hello to Young-shin.



When I get back home,

I'll make you happier. I promise.



It's very cold here.

Take care of yourself, Mom.



All these patients

come from the   th parallel.



You're crazy to go back there.



How can you be sure

that you'll even find him?



You will be discharged in a week.



Think of your mom.



See you.



You have to take care of Young-shin's

brothers and sisters! Jin-seok!



Take care, you bastard.



We attack hills     and    

in order to divide them.



  st and  nd battalions

flank the hills from both directions.



We have to take out flag unit,

at all costs.



Don't forget that we've

moved the operation up one day.



- Is PFC Lee joining the mission?

- He'll sit this one out.



Since the Americans moved the attack

up    hours, there's no time.



He'll speak over the microphone.



Sir! I'm Lee Jin-tae's brother.



It's an honor to meet

the brother of a traitor.



He won't believe it's me

unless he sees me.



We're attacking in an hour.

There's no time.



If he sees that I'm alive,

he'll probably come back.



Out of the question.



Sir, please.



Are you doing this

for your brother or for the country?



Prepare for transmission.



   minutes to go!



No enemy movements detected, sir.



Artillery units are standing by!



- Where is the script?

- It hasn't been delivered yet.



Wait here.



Check your weapons:

dagger, grenades, extra magazines...



PFC Lee is running towards the enemy.



- What's this?

- He's just surrendered.



I'll kill you if you're lying.



I want to see my brother.

He's in charge of flag unit.



- Let me see him.

- Check it out!



A yellow dog says he's

the brother of mother Owl.



Let me talk to him!

He doesn't know I'm alive!



Negative. He says his brother is dead.



Let me talk to him!



Jin-tae, it's me, Jin-seok!



Damned spy!

What's your mission?



Spit it out

before I blow your head off!



Let me talk to him.

He'll recognize me.



- Don't treat me like an idiot!

- I'm begging you!



- I beg you!

- Spit it out!



We've got an order to take him

to the security unit.



Get him out of here!



- Where's the flag unit?

- Ask the guard.



Air attack!



Air attack!



Where's the flag unit?






Where the hell are you going?



A dog from the south!



Flag unit!



Die, you southern bastard!



It's me, Jin-seok. Stop it!









You south piece of shit! Die!



- Stop it, Jin-tae!

- Damn dog!



Look at me!

It's me, Jin-seok. Your only brother.



- I'm your brother.

- Damned dog!






Get up!



You have to come with me!



Let's go! We have no time!



Please get up!

We need to get out of here!



Please come!



Think of Mom...



You have to take care

of Young-shin's grave.



You promised me so much.



You can't die here.



You have to live...


            see me go to college.






Are you really alive?



- Go!

- I won't go alone.



- Just go!

- Never. Get up!



Listen to me. I will surrender

and come home after the war.



I was making shoes for you

to wear when you went to college.



They're not finished yet,

so I won't die. Now hurry.



- I don't want to go!

- I'll be okay.



Do as I say! Go!



- I'm not leaving without you!

- Then we'll both die. Go now!



Look at me.

Believe me.



I found this after the fire.



Give it to me...



...when we meet again.



You have to come back!



You promised to come back...



...and finish the shoes.



What are you doing here?



I've waited for so long.



You promised.

What are you doing here?



Say something!



I've waited for    years.

Say something to your little brother.



I shouldn't have left you

on your own back then.



Big brother...



Big brother...



Jin-seok! Jin-seok!



We're off to get some water.



Young-guk, Young-ja and Young-min.

You've grown so big.



I and my sister

are starting school again.



I can't wait to start.

What about you?



You have to go to school.
