Welcome to Dongmakgol
.:. Sil, this is the vcd's that I bought (bahan bukti).:.
Yesterday (Sunday 07/05/06), I started the day with no plans to speak of. After church, I was taking a nap and around 5.30 or so in the evening I was watching a Korean movie entitled Welcome to Dongmakgol…alone…as usual! Well, actually I had a conversation with Sil pertaining to that movie the day before and obviously he managed to persuade me to watch that movie…he..he… The film was pretty good, and not nearly as anti-American as the Korea Herald led me to believe. Set during the Korean War (1950 to be exact), the movie tells the tale of a group of North Korean soldiers, a group of South Korean soldiers, and an American pilot (Capt. Neil Smith) who all independently wind up in a small village completely unaware of the (the afore mentioned Dongmakgol).

Over the course of the movie, all of these guys realized that none of them are really that different from each other while removed from the war. I took the film to be more anti-war than anti-American. All sides in the film were shown doing horrible things during war (North Koreans attempting to kill off their own injured men, South Koreans blowing up a bridge with people on it, Americans beating up civilians during an interrogation), so no one comes off smelling like roses.

Geli ati aku ngenang maya penduduk kampong Dongmakgol nya bekenang ka bala sedadu ke datai dia, ba sida penduduk kampong nya the newcomers are viewed simply as people "wearing a round gourd (buah labu) and holding long sticks" and who "look irritated a lot," because they have never seen a gun nor military helmet. When the soldiers explain war has broken out across the Korean Peninsula, the villages ask with surprise, "Who invaded? The Japanese or Chinese?" I really found this was rather an amusing prologue to a film that portrays the tragedy and absurdity of war. Overall cerita tu ndang lucu ndar peda aku….towards the end of it ke nyu emosional mimit….
