'Operation Chromite' to pay homage to hidden heroes of Incheon Landing

By Park Sojung

SEOUL, Oct. 30 (Yonhap) -- The upcoming South Korean war film "Operation Chromite" will pay tribute to the little-known heroes of the Battle of Incheon, producers said Friday.

On Sept. 15, 1950, the U.N. and South Korean forces penetrated Incheon, then captured by the North, through an amphibious invasion. That invasion, known as the Battle of Incheon, saved South Korea from the brink of Korean War defeat and played a decisive role in its victory against the North, according to historians.

"Operation Chromite," directed by John H. Lee, will center on a secret intelligence unit that spied on North Korea to prepare for that historic battle.

"At first, I thought it would be another war movie, but upon reading the scenario, I realized it's more of a suspense thriller," South Korean actor Lee Jung-jae told reporters at a press conference in Seoul. "I decided to take part because it sheds critical light on the sacrifices made by the intelligence unit and people of Incheon."

Lee will play Jang Hak-su, a South Korean naval captain who spearheaded the spy operation called "X-Ray." A total of 17 soldiers were part of the Korea Liaison Office (KLO), the intelligence unit.

American actor Liam Neeson, who couldn't make the press conference due to a scheduling conflict, will star as the mastermind of the Incheon Landing, U.S. General Douglas MacArthur. South Korean actor Lee Beom-soo will be the villain, Rim Kye-jin, who controlled the North's troops in Incheon.

South Korean actor Jung Joon-ho, who will portray a fictional character that led the Incheon branch of the KLO, echoed Lee Jung-jae's comments, saying the film will document a critical part of South Korean history.

"I wanted to help show our future generations how South Korea came to be and how these hidden heroes played a big part," Jung said.

Lee Jung-jae, meanwhile, dismissed anticipation that "Operation Chromite" will be his big break into Hollywood.

"People ask if this will be my Hollywood break, but I tell them it's Neeson's break into K-movies," Lee said, laughing.

John H. Lee, who directed another Korean War film five years ago, said he'd been wanting to shoot another war movie since "71: Into the Fire," a story of South Korean students who fought in the Korean War.

"I remember thinking after '71: Into the Fire' that I want to film another war movie," he said, "the reason being the unique charm and drama of war films. They capture humanity in its direst situations."

 "Operation Chromite" will open in July 2016.

‘Operation’ remembers the Battle of Incheon

Korea’s upcoming mega-budget film “Operation Chromite” will pay tribute to those who sacrificed and fought during the Battle of Incheon, which broke out shortly after the 1950-53 Korean War.

Operation Chromite refers to an amphibious invasion by UN soldiers on Sept. 15, 1950, at the Incheon port. The maneuver was intended to surprise and push back the North Korean soldiers attempting to take control of the peninsula. Helmed by the famous U.S. general, Douglas MacArthur, the attack played a decisive role in turning the tide of the war in South Korea’s favor. 

“While producing ‘71: Into the Fire’ (2010), I came across records that said 17 soldiers died during the Battle of Incheon,” said Jeong Tae-won, head of the production company Taewon Entertainment, during a rare large-scale press event on Friday at the Chosun Westin Hotel in central Seoul.

“I wanted to make a film about the operation in order to let people know about the heroes that were forgotten by history,” he added.
Director John H. Lee, also known as Lee Jae-han, joined forces with Jeong for the second time after “71: Into the Fire.”

Actor Lee Jung-jae from “Assassination” will play South Korean Navy Lt. Jang Hak-su, who leads the secretive operation, codenamed “X-Ray.” 

“When I first received the screenplay, I was surprised it was more about psychological warfare than being a simple war movie,” Lee said.

“Operation Chromite ended successfully, but I was inspired by the fact that it wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for the sacrifices such as those by the [Korean Liaison Office] unit,” he added. 

Liam Neeson, who has made headlines by being cast as Gen. MacArthur, sent a greeting video to his Korean fans, saying that he is “excited to start working on this special film,” which will “honor those who fought for freedom and peace.”

Other actors attached to the project include Lee Beom-soo, who will play an elite North Korean commander, and Jung Joon-ho, who will take on the role of the Korean Liaison Office unit’s leader. 

Korean-Japanese UFC fighter and entertainer Choo Sung-hoon will also participate in the film as a North Korean soldier, marking his film debut. 

The film is slated to be released in the summer of 2016.
