We want reunification!

Here's the list of POWs

we're sending back.

Like this line, the military demarcation line

has to be drawn.

One centimeter above,

South took over K hill three days ago.

We have that hill now.

The line is wrong.

If you want to keep arguing about it

Why don't we just go out into the field

and check it out for ourselves?


Yesterday, K hill was taken

by the north.

Here we go again.

Your discharge is upon a truce, right?

It's been dragging

for a year and half.

I know.

You'll be transferred

to the investigation unit.


No way.

They're shorthanded there.

Busy purging commies

and traitors in the South.

A lot of them are falsely accused.

Kang, watch your mouth.

They fed the NK soldiers

cause they were threatened with guns.

And you call them commies?

We can't help it.

They're collateral damage.

Purge pro-Japanese

pawns first.

Shut up!

Goddamn it!

This is serious sh*t.

You're a CIC officer.

What were you thinking?

Am I going to jail?

Why couldn't you hold your tongue?

A breakdown of discipline

isn't tolerated at CIC.

You're not going to jail.

Go to the eastern front.

The eastern front?

Investigate this.

"Dear my beloved mom."

"I don't see the truce

happening anytime soon."

"We're losing comrades

in combats everyday."

This was written by a NK soldier.


It was delivered

to this lady a week ago.

Through our MPS.

How's that possible?

There's a mole.

It was sent from Alligator Company.

Didn't they lose the hill

the other day?


I would recall those bastards

and put the screws on them.

But that hill is very important

for the talks.

The company captain

got killed recently.

He was reported as a KIA.

But you know what?

What killed him is a gun

we officers use.

Doesn't it smell?

A new captain is leaving soon.

Go with him.


You won't be thankful

once you get there.


Do you know

Kim Soo-hyeok?

He was in your platoon.

Yes, we were friends from college.

He went missing in action.


He's in Alligator Company.

He's alive?

Jun 27, 1950


- Su-hyeok!

- Eun-pyo?


Su-hyeok, are you okay?

Look at me.

Don't let me die.

Get up if you wanna live.

Come on, get up.



Get up.

Get up!

Get up!

Turn around.


Move it!

Look, dumbasses.

Do you know why you're losing?

Do you know why you keep running?

Let me tell you.

That's because you don't know

why you're fighting.

This war will end in a week.

When it does, we'll need you.

Go home and help us later

rebuild the nation.

We'll treat the wounded.

You can go.

See you again when we're reunified.

- Eun-pyo?

- Su-hyeok!

- Let go!

- No!

Just leave.



- Hey, Cruit.

- Private Nam Seong-sik!

That's good.

Keep it loud.


Yes, sir!

Do you know where we're going?

Yes, sir.

To the eastern front, sir.

How old are you?

Kang Eun-pyo, right?

Yes, sir.

Why'd you put in a transfer

for the eastern front?

A man of ambition, aren't you?

This war will be over soon.

And those who fought

at the front line will rule.

The front line is

where soldiers should be.

Right, Private?

Yes, sir! I'm ready to die

for our country!

The Eastern Front Camp Cayman

No greetings?


Get over here.

- Why?

- Why?

- What the...

- Who stole my cigarettes?

You b*tch!

- What the hell!

- Enemy!


A POW is on the loose!

Get him!

Yes, sir!

Put it away, b*tch.
