Didn't see a thread for Tae Guk Gi so I decided to make one.

In 1950, in South Korea, the shoe-shiner Jin-tae Lee and his eighteen years old student brother Jin-seok Lee form a poor but happy family with their mother, Jin-tae's fiancé Young-shin Kim and her young sisters. Jin-tae and his mother are tough workers, who sacrifice themselves to send Jin-seok to the university. When North Korea invades the South, the family escapes to a relative's house in the country, but along their journey, Jin-seok is forced to join the army to fight in the front, and Jin-tae enlists too to protect his young brother. The commander promises Jin-tae that if he gets a medal he would release his brother, and Jin-tae becomes the braver soldier in the company. Along the bloody war between brothers, the relationship of Jin-seok with his older brother deteriorates leading to a dramatic and tragic end.
Dong-Kun Jang ... Jin-tae Lee
Bin Won ... Jin-seok Lee
Eun-ju Lee ... Young-shin Kim
Hyeong-jin Kong ... Yong-man
Yeong-ran Lee ... Mother
Thought this movie was very dramatic, which I enjoyed, but it was sad to see Lee Eun-Joo, such a beautiful woman, to be in this movie because she committed suicide in 2004. Heartbreaking...
