Compared to Swiri, a mixture of action and melodrama, Park Chan-wook’s J.S.A Joint Security Area depicts the nation’s division in the grammar of thriller. The film makes a challenge to the long-hardened taboo of long years by making a symbolic action of crossing the line. Soldiers who stand on either side at alert start to open their hearts, support each other and become friends, closer to the brothers. However, the harsh reality leads them to death. The group photo of the ending is a portrait of the nation’s division. Making a good collaboration with the inter-Korean summit, the film caused a sensation.
