About This DVD

Nearly five years after the release of his blockbuster hit Shiri hit theatres, director Kang Je Gyu returns to the director's chair with Taegukgi, the big-budget war epic that thrilled Korean audiences in 2004. Taking its title from the South Korean flag, the film details the story of two brothers who find themselves swept up by the tide of war. Believing that the future of the family lies with his younger sibling, simple cobbler Lee Jin Tae (Jang Dong Gun) works out a deal with his superior officer: if he wins the Medal of Honor, his brother Jin Seok (Won Bin) gets sent home. But in order to take home the medal, he begins volunteering for increasingly dangerous missions, much to the confusion of his younger brother. Even worse, Jin Tae's noble aim soon corrupts him, as he begins loving the idea of playing the hero a little too much.

Eventually, his promotion to sergeant, the parties thrown in his honor, and the interviews with the media seem to go to Jin Tae's head. And as a result of this newfound fame, he starts to exhibit an apparent lack of regard for the fiancee (the late Lee Eun Joo) he left back home. This change in behavior causes a rift between the brothers, one that will have dramatic consequences for both their lives as history's "Forgotten War" heats up. Shot in a style that is strongly reminiscent of Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers, Taegukgi goes to great lengths to show the horrors of war in graphic fashion in telling its tale of two warring ideologies and the common people destroyed by it!
