BEST Korean War movie ever!!
Love the cast! Story line got me all worked up. Very pitiful coal miners in hellish living conditions. Much worst of are the comfort women in that era. Worst off than slaves, they were badly bullied, raped and then murdered. Inhumane Very brutal. Friendship, love and patriotism is the part which makes you love this movie. Must watch for all So JiSub, Song JoongKi and Hwang JungMin fans. Great acting!!

Simply brilliant
This show is brilliant it show the thing human would do to survive and it is based on a true story. It show is how ugly we can be but it also show is how strong we can also become. Everyone go and see it because of Song Joong ki but I believe everyone who have seen it will agree with me that the real star is Hwang Jung Min. His performance is simply brilliant
