Description: "Into the Gunfire" is based on the true story of 71 students who fight hundreds of North Korean soldiers in front of a middle school on June 25, 1950 during the Korean War.

I’m not really that much fascinated by war movies or tearjerkers but this movie got to me. I love the way this movie wasn’t one-sided and didn’t make North Koreans appear like some satanic cult. It was even and had appropriately portrayed war like it is, that there is kindness and mercy, no right or wrong, just trying to survive on different sides of the fences.
But the thing that left a mark on me was T.O.P’s character. All throughout the movie, he was a soldier and not Big Bang’s T.O.P. He was so believable you forget he’s acting. The motivation and his drive to fight for his life, his subordinates, their freedom, their country, I felt it. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s T.O.P but, man, I was so into it.
I can’t speak for anyone else but for me, this movie isn’t an ordinary feat. As the story progress, you’d see how war changes people it doesn’t matter who, how it breaks and makes people and how precious each second is. It’s heartwarming, it’s heartbreaking, it’s real..
