I'm not a POW.

Why are you wearing an enemy uniform?

Cause I'm cold.

Are you shitting me?

You call yourself a soldier?

Take it off.

Take it off now!

Stop yelling.

You're hurting my ears.

What are you doing?

I have it on inside.

I can't believe this.

Who are you?

Who am I?

What's this?

This is ridiculous.

Alligator my ass.

Sorry I'm late.

What's up with your accent?

Oh, I'm from the North.

I left home 20 years ago.

So I'm not red at all.

An acting commander?

No, sir.

Msg. Yang Hyo-sam.

The acting commander

will be here soon.

What are you doing here?


Who are these kids?

This isn't a playground.

Send them away.

They're war orphans.

We've been looking after them.

Damn, it's a mess here.

Let's go.

What a life.

An alligator?

How old are you?

State your rank and name.


Where'd you get this?

What are you?

Shin Il-Young.

A captain?

You're the acting commander?

Respect your superior.

First Lieutenant

Kang Eun-pyo.


We call it Aerok Hill.

It's a strategic point,

covering these two points.

The enemy had it 7 hours ago.

But we took it back on our 6th attack.

Many guys got wounded and tired.

So the regimental commander

put us on a break.

Well done.


I'm determined to end

this battle of attrition.

It won't be as easy as you think.


Sorry, sir.

We'll set up AA guns

on the foot of the hill.

Anti-aircraft guns?

But they have no air power.

You use them only for fighters?

With AA guns, our defense line here...

What if we lose them to the enemy?

Then we're fucked.

He's right.

We're still here,

thanks to USAF air strike.

If they take our AA guns,

we can forget the air support.


We won't lose them.

Set up AA guns right now.

That's not good.

Who are you?

First lt. Kim Soo-hyeok.
