Arriving in Australian cinemas tomorrow July 16 is South Korean naval drama Northern Limit Line, based on the events of the 2002 Second Battle of Yeonpyeong between North and South Korean patrol boats along the disputed sea boundary between the two. According to this Variety piece, it’s now the highest grossing local film of 2015 in South Korea — and we’ve got it in cinemas here for a little while.
Written and directed by Kim Hak-soon and starring Kim Mu-yeol, Jin Goo, and Lee Hyun-woo, the trailer suggest the film features camaraderie amongst fresh-faced recruits and considerable slo-mo heroism, against the backdrop of Korea’s run for the FIFA 2002 World Cup.
