    Default Taegukgi / Brotherhood 태극기 휘날리며

    Saw trailers in past few months on train and decided to watch this movie last week when it started screening.

    Wonder if anyone had watched this show and made you go

    sorry dude, I totally disagree..... it is bad story, bad acting.......

    the ridiculous scenes just turns me off and prevented me from believing the story. Everything was done too deliberately, nothing was left unsaid. The director does not believe in telling a story in subtle ways.

    spoiler ALEART !!!!!!
    --------













    -------
    many scenes that I tot was stupid, just for example, I understand the director wanted to show that the brothers were very close, so how did he put that across ?

    by having 2 grown man, about 20 years old holding hands running around and playing catching in the middle of town..... and just in case you didn't get it, he had the older brother giving the younger brother a pen and said "you're the hopes and dreams of our family". AND just in case you STILL didn't get it, they had to share a single stick of popsicle...... 2 grown men.... and lastly just to seal the point, you have the bothers feeding each other noodles.........

    :\

    Dear Rueyloon

    OT a bit.
    I apologise first, I can't help but I totally disagree with you.
    Different country have different culture and different way of life.
    The Koreans have a very strong family bond, and take very seriously and views on their parents, sisters and brothers.
    In short, their bonds is close and strong.

    In case you do not know and for your information, the four line surronding the South Korea flag means Father, Mother, Son and Daugther, the centre circle with red/blue mean family in harmony.
    Got it.

    it has nothing to do with not understanding Korea, it is about bad story telling. Let me requalify this as just my opinion, as I'm sure people will disagree with me. since I've requalify this as just my opinion, I feel it is no where near "Saving Private Ryan".

    spoiler alert

    for example, the scene near the end, how can a soldier wearing the enemy's uniform move freely in the trenches ?

    hhaa, good one.

    i watched coz i was 'forced' to, with frens... hehe.. and for a 'forced-show', it's actually pretty decent. i felt it was more gory than savin private, and wonder if it was gratuitous stuff at times, but overall it's a pretty heartfelt account. interesting how director portrays that it's hard to take sides in a war... as we should all know by now.

    In war, any thing can happen.
    In 25 Dec 1914 (if I am not wrong), during World War I, the British and German cease fire on this day and celebrate Christmas together.
    They drink beers, smoke cigarette, visit each other site of the field, play soccer together, and even pray for each other.

    Well, this a Korean Movie.
    To understand or not to understand depends on indivdual mindset.
    You got your point and I got mind right.
    Anyway, let nor argue lah. I apologise again if I say anything wrong.

    I was told by the South Korean tour guide when I was having a holiday at South Korea.
    Maybe it is another version or somehow.
