South Korean Films: How Do They Portray North Koreans? Part 2

The Front Line:

Basically, this film shows both North and South Korean troops fighting an endless battle for a hill. The two sides go back and forth as they conquer and lose the hill. The situation is absurd and is a Catch-22, which is probably a commentary on the Korean War itself.

Verdict: In this film, we don’t really get to see too much of the enemy that are the North Koreans. However, the absurdity of the situation and the helplessness of both the North and South Korean troops show that they are just pawns of a diabolical war-game.
