Less than a week after his discharge from the army, Kim Mu-yeol (EungyoBow: The Ultimate Weapon) has signed on for the role of naval hero Lieutenant Commander Yoon Young-ha, replacing Jung Seok-won, who’d been cast (and who’d done some preliminary filming) before production on the movie faltered due to the swapping of its backers.

Film depicts valor of S. Korean sailors in inter-Korean clash

By Oh Seok-min

SEOUL, June 3 (Yonhap) -- The forgotten sacrifices made by young South Korean sailors during a bloody naval clash with North Korea 13 years ago will be portrayed on the silver screen in a new film funded partly by citizens.

The movie titled "Battle of Yeonpyeong," to be released next week, is based on the naval skirmish between the two Koreas on June 29, 2002, in waters off the South Korean border island of Yeonpyeong in the Yellow Sea.

Six sailors were killed and 18 others were injured after a fierce exchange of fire, which was sparked when two North Korean patrol boats infiltrated the maritime border.

The occasion, which is known to also have caused some 30 casualties in the North, is called the Second Battle of Yeonpyeong, with the first battle taking place in 1999.


"I've wanted to depict the ironic situation where the young sailors, who are someone's beloved sons, fathers, and friends, were killed on one side, while others were overwhelmed by the 2002 World Cup," Kim Hak-soon, director of the film, said Wednesday ahead of a press preview.

The second Yeonpyeong battle is often called "a forgotten conflict" here, as the tragedy was overshadowed by the unprecedented nationwide fervent festive mood over the sporting event. On the day of the skirmish, South Korea played against Turkey but failed to take third place at the World Cup.

After seven years of twists and turns since filming first began, the movie is to be released next week. Due to difficulties in securing funding by private entities and the Navy, the producer fund-raised some 2 billion won (US$1.79 million), some 25 percent of the total production cost, from about 7,000 citizens.

"I hope that this film gives audiences a chance to think of the stark reality of where we live now," he said. "I tried to re-enact what happened to the sailors as it was."

Thirteen years on, tension still runs high along the western inter-Korean sea border.

North Korea has launched provocative actions near the Northern Limit Line, the de facto inter-Korean maritime border, demanding that the border be drawn further south as the current one was decided by U.S.-led U.N. forces at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

In November 2009, another skirmish between the navies of the two Koreas took place off South Korea's western border island of Daecheong. A North Korean patrol boat was seriously damaged and a handful of sailors were wounded or killed, while the South Korean Navy sustained no casualties. The following year, Pyongyang launched an artillery attack against Yeonpyeong Island, killing two marines and two civilians and wounding more than a dozen others.

‘Yeonpyeong’ resurrects overshadowed part of history

BY JIN EUN-SOO [jin.eunsoo@joongang.co.kr] INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily

For Koreans, 2002 is an unforgettable year.

Many people still remember the festive mood that swept the country when the national football team advanced into the semifinals of the World Cup, jointly held in the squad’s home nation and in Japan. 

Thousands of people went out onto the streets, hoping for another victorious moment.

But there are some who remember that year differently, particularly the family members and close acquaintances of those who lost their lives in the Second Battle of Yeonpyeong. 

The fighting broke out on June 29, the day of the Korean football team’s third-place playoff game with Turkey. 

That morning, a North Korean guard ship raided one of the South’s high-speed boats on the western coast of the peninsula near the Northern Limit Line, the de facto maritime sea border between the two nations. 

The battle was recorded as a South Korean victory, but the deadly fight continued for 30 minutes and six of Seoul’s naval staff died while 18 were seriously injured. The Chamsuri 357 boat sank deep under the sea. 

Thirteen years since the tragic incident, the Second Battle of Yeonpyeong has been resurrected in the upcoming movie “Northern Limit Line,” written and directed by Kim Hak-soon. 

The film finally opened after seven years after stumbling with obtaining investment and a distributor. As a last resort, the film turned to crowdfunding, amassing a third of the production fees (2 billion won, or $1.8 million) from an unprecedented 7,000 people.

“I didn’t expect the production fees to get this big. I was just determined to make this incident into a movie, feeling empathy for the bereaved family,” director Kim said during a press event at Wangsimni CGV, eastern Seoul, on Monday. 

“When I ran out of money, I didn’t have any solution but to appeal to the public, explaining clearly what kind of movie I wanted to make.” 

The film realistically portrayed the intense and brutal naval battle on screen, for which the director said he meticulously calculated every second of to reproduce the soldiers’ movements as precisely as possible.

But another vital focus of the movie was the human drama element.

Centering on three fallen soldiers - Captain Yoon Young-ha (Kim Moo-yeol), Sergeant Han Sang-gook (Jin Goo) and Corporal Park Dong-hyuk (Lee Hyun-woo) - the film spends more than half of its 130-minute running time showing the convivial everyday life they experience while in the navy, as well as each of their loving families back at home. 

Most parts of the film concerning the personal lives of the soldiers is “fiction,” according to Park, but he said he met with the bereaved families several times during the production process for discussions.

But at the same time, the emphasis on emotion has led to some criticism that the film exaggerates patriotism.

Also, a scene with a news report about then-incumbent President Kim Dae-jung visiting Japan for the World Cup closing ceremony during the funeral was especially considered to contain obvious political intentions.

“I wasn’t going for a political approach,” the director told the JoongAng Ilbo, a Korea JoongAng Daily affiliate. 

“I just wanted to depict an ironic situation where one part of the country is celebrating a festival while the other part is dying,” he said, adding that it was not an ideological approach but a humanitarian one.

The film opens in theaters nationwide on Wednesday.
