The Marmot’s Hole has informed us that a new movie, based upon supposed historical events, is coming out. (ROK Drop would surely take issue with the validity of said events.) Here is the movie poster.

Hmmm, I could swear that I had seen that before at Marmot’s. Wait, we have.

North Korean propaganda

Notice the similarity between the South Korean movie poster and the North Korean propaganda. I’m not American, but this irks me.


  1. Great observation in regards to the similarities between the movie poster and North Korean propaganda.

  3. […] @ 1:14 pm Remember that movie about No Gun Ri that’s coming out, the one with the poster that I took issue with? Well, this past Thursday, it had its premiere at a theater filled with journalists, critics, and […]

  4. I am not sure if its me or is most south Koreans propagandist towards North Koreans. Every movie I saw showed them as foolish (some simple dumb), stubborn, savage and heartless. I am assuming it normal because of their history; an country will act that way. But for South Korea it doesn’t stop at North Korea but also Japan, which I’ve seen a few where Japan tries to con (or rob Korea) or basically screw it over.Sure, they had bad history also, but it been over sixty years. I remember the last movie that had japan vs S.korea theme was the ‘Le Grand Chef’ movies series I remember the first one was good but the sequel I stopped at the first ten minutes (Spoiler: when the Japanese ambassador says kimichi is Japanese traditional dish! [LOL]), I shut the PC it was too !pathetic! that there are people that feed on such energy. I’ve seen similar behaviors in movies from other countries using (let’s call it propaganda behavior) to characterize the rival,enemy or criminal. Don’t get me wrong I love S.Korean movies. But these parts of the movie just make the movie less serious or less funny.

    I am not going to say horror because I’ve still haven’t seen a movie I’d consider scary. Remember I said SCARY not grotesque.
