The full impact of brotherly love is shown in this touching Korean blockbuster that teams up superstars Jang Dong Gun and Won Bin. The film revolves around two brothers who are drafted into the army by force during the outbreak of the Korean War in the 50s. Jang Dong Gun plays Lee Jin Tae, a simple family man who makes every effort to excel in his duties in order to achieve an early release from the military services for his younger brother Jin Seok (Won Bin). Unaware of his older brother's good intentions, Jin Seok is increasingly upset by his brother's cavalier actions. The misunderstandings between the two keep accumulating until Jin Seok accidentally comes across an unposted letter to his family and makes a fateful decision.
Directed by Gang Je Gyu (Shiri), Taegukgi: The Brotherhood of War became the highest-grossing Korean film of all time when it was released in 2004, a record later surpassed by King and The Clown in 2006. The film's 12.8 million dollar production cost also set a new record for the Korean film industry. Taegukgi 's epic nature and gritty and realistic battlefield scenes poignantly capture the brutality and devastation of war, while the brothers' evolving relationship makes for an affecting account of the wartime experience.
