Both films represent barbarism and tragic story of a country who have suffered greatly over the past decades.

Both movies are about older brother taking care of younger brother and trying everything to keep them safe. Both movies involve war and fighting.

Also based on true events, this movie portrays South Korea's harsh reality under President Chun Doo Hwan and Roh Tae Woo. The event of the 1980 Gwangju uprising was mentioned in the students/college movements. South Korea's movement for Democracy is a tragedy and a miracle.

They are both great movies and it all revolves around the Gwangju massacre on May 18.

The complete package about suspense politic in dark history of Korea. When it needs to be funny it is and when it needs to show you the horrific things that happened in the Gwangju Uprising. Song Kang-ho can't be applauded enough for making this mix of emotions work so well.
