Three days have passed since the hostilities at JSA.
Efforts to hold a joint investigation between the Koreas have failed,
but recently negotiators achieved a key breakthrough.
Authorities from both countries have agreed this afternoon
to comply with an investigation by the NNSC.
Tensions have been running high
amid suspicions of a Northern nuclear program
and the advance of U.S. naval vessels into the East Sea.
Both Koreas recognize the need
to handle the recent conflict calmly and objectively,
and to avoid having this trivial matter escalate into war.
In accordance with the agreement, the NNSC is planning to dispatch
Swiss and Swedish law officers with practical experience in this field.
If a battle starts, shoot the bastards.
You couldn't kill even one?
You call yourself a soldier?
I thought my primary mission was to rescue Sergeant Lee.
So that's why you couldn't aim straight?
Was your order to shoot down trees?
My order was to scare them off and give cover to the rescue team.
You sure you weren't the one scared off?
I didn't want to start a war, sir.
What? A soldier afraid of war?
War doesn't break out that easily.
...isn't it rather obvious?
Some commies kidnap our soldier,
and claim he crossed over voluntarily.
- Am I right? - Correct, sir!
Our boy... what's your name again?
Sergeant Lee Soo Hyuk, sir! Right, Soo Hyuk.
Let's wrap this up quickly so Soo Hyuk can take a leave of absence.
Our boy here took out two of the bastards.
He's a hero!
Wouldn't you say, Major Jean?
Your opinion will be noted in the investigation.
The NNSC will now be taking custody of the suspect.
No South Korean military officials may enter without my permission.
Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission?
There are two kinds of people in this world.
and the Commie bastards' enemies.
Neutral has no place here.
You have to choose sides.
You're from law school, right?
I trust you'll make a wise choice.
I'm Major Sophie Jean from Switzerland.
This is Captain Perrson from Sweden.
He's still in shock.
He was hit with a blunt object.
That bruise proves that he was kidnapped.
- Deposition -
He looks like one of ours!
Soo Hyuk! Soo Hyuk!
Right over the Military Demarcation Line.
Doesn't it seem a bit acted out?
This is where Lieutenant Choi's body was found.
And that's where Private Jung fell.
A basement bunker...
Private Jung was a talented artist.
He even won a prize in a national contest.
He was popular among the soldiers for drawing their girlfriends.
RICE IS COMMUNISM
As soon as Lee Soo Hyuk left our post,
Southern soldiers stormed in as if on cue.
It's a good thing that Sergeant Oh survived.
Otherwise the South would go on spouting lies,
calling it a North Korean provocation.
That's exactly what they're saying now.
Who's going to believe it?
We have a witness.
Don't get up.
This is Major Jean from the NNSC.
Are you okay?
No big deal. It's nothing.
This is from a terrorist in Libya.
Sliced me with his knife.
Once in Egypt, I had to scrape out shrapnel with a gun spike.
Shall we take a look?
I'm glad you're okay.
Now then, can you tell me about that night?
It's all in my deposition.
You mean the deposition you made and signed while barely conscious?
What did you just say?
Why is it you all have depositions, but nobody will talk to me?
Hey Lieutenant, tell us about your vacation.
It was the same as any other.
It was nothing special.
Once in the right chest,
crushing the ribs and passing through the lung.
But that wasn't the fatal shot.
The second one was the real killer.
Judging from the angle, it was shot at point blank.
As for the next one...
A total of eight shots.
Shot from such a close range, they went right through him.
The first shot hit his face, probably killing him instantly.
The rest were just shot into a dead body.
Lee Soo Hyuk.
Now there's a man.
I can see that.
Once while he was on duty,
those guys over there cursed our president.
When Soo Hyuk heard this,
He took a rock and smashed their window.
So I rounded up my men and then told him
''All right! Way to go!''
Once he got left behind on a search mission.
Man, the squad was in uproar.
Four hours later he shows up again.
Says he stepped on a mine and had to dismantle it.
Anyway, I knew then.
This guy, he's something else.
Nerves of steel, I tell you.
Nam Sung Shik,
you were on duty with Sergeant Lee on the day of the incident.
- Right? - Yes, ma'am!
I'm not deaf.
Why did Sergeant Lee go out alone?
An urgent call of nature.
Can a soldier leave his post for that?
He said people with constipation
should seize a chance when it comes.
Please load the gun as you would normally.
So you refuse to say anything?
I visited the North side and saw the corpses.
If you just wanted to escape, why shoot a man 8 times?
I brought photos of the bodies. Do you want to see them?
I don't want to see them.
You've got a nice voice.
Your fellow soldiers say you're very quick with the gun.
Are you really that fast?
Will you show me?
What's important in battle isn't speed.
It's carrying yourself with composure and bravery.
Can you load the gun again, just like before?
Are you really a Swiss soldier?
Does Sergeant Lee talk much about army life?
He tries to, but I don't let him.
Has he ever talked about, for example...
How he went on any missions,
or if he got special training?
Can you zip me up?
Soo Jung, you don't worry about Sergeant Lee?
We're not really that serious.
What kind of person is he, in a word?
Oh, you can tell by how he treats my brother.
Since we were kids my brother never had many friends.
But after enlisting, things got much better, thanks to Soo-Hyuk.
He's very warm-hearted.
Probably because he grew up poor, like us.
Wait a second...
You didn't know?
Private Nam Sung Shik, they're in the same platoon.
He kept asking me to meet Soo Hyuk, so I did.
Is there something on my face?
No, not at all.
There were 11 bullet wounds on the three North Korean soldiers.
10 bullets were recovered at the scene,
but one was never found.
It's a missing bullet.
There were 5 left in your gun.
If you add these up, 5 and 10 make 15.
Since you aren't in the habit of loading an extra bullet,
15 matches the number you had to begin with.
what's this one bullet?
It was neither shot by you nor recovered later.
Yet it pierced through a soldier's body.
If someone hid the bullet,
it means he's afraid it might reveal whose gun fired it.
In other words, there was someone else,
a fifth person at the scene.
What do you think of my theory?
Sometimes they set fires on the DMZ for good visibility.
One night we burned a reed field.
And all the mines blew up like fireworks.
Then, another time...
Was Private Nam with you then, too?
This is the beretta you had when you were rescued.
Everyone assumed that this was your gun.
I requested an inquiry on the serial number.
This gun belongs to Private Nam.
Pvt. Nam said his gun broke during the rescue and fired only once.
The beretta M-9 is an automatic,
so the slide cocks back after each shot.
It broke right here.
You know all this, right? You're the weapons expert.
I inspected the gun registered to you that Private Nam returned.
An antimony-barium reaction on the gun revealed more than just gunpowder.
After the first shot, the slide retracted and then stuck.
And blood from a body splattered right here.
and blood splattered right here.
The analysis results matched with Private Jung's blood sample.
The bloodstains right here...
weren't visible, and so they weren't wiped off.
Sergeant Lee, have you heard of the Keeler Polygraph
Also known as a lie detector.
Here's checkpoint 2.
And this is checkpoint 3?
Hey, what are the coordinates here again?
If we're here...
We're at checkpoint 3, sir.
Those coordinates aren't on the map.
Are you saying we crossed over?
Give me that.
Retreat quickly, 5 o'clock!
I told you not to bring that damn dog, you stupid shit!
I didn't bring him!
You shut up.
I'm stepping on a mine.
We could all die.
Watch out! Careful, there...
Don't come any closer!
One more step, and I'll trip the wire.
You just gonna leave me here?
You told us to go.
I said don't come closer, when did I say to leave, you fuckers!
A grown man, crying like a baby...
Let's just go.
Take it. It's a gift.
You too, puppy.
Watch yourself now.
About that mine... Don't even talk to me.
What? Just out to save yourself...
Well, it was just...
We got your rabbit's dick right here!
Your shadow's over the line.
You writing to Soo Jung?
I didn't thank you for your help last time.
It was rude of me, brother.
Oh, can I call you brother?
I've always wanted a brother.
''After hearing 'comrade' all the time,
it's nice to be called brother.''
''My hobby is baseball.
I was a pitcher in high school.''
''I'm enjoying the tape you sent me.
Han Dae Su was hard to take at first, but I like it now.
Kim Hyun Shik is good, too.
But don't you have any female singers down there?''
I didn't mean it...
I thought I'd write to him too, as a joke...
I never thought he'd actually come.
What kind of a crazy fool would...
Wait, I didn't mean for you to go.
You've done a great thing.
After half a century of division,
you have breached our tragic history of agony and disgrace,
broken the dam to reunify our country. Comrade Lee Soo Hyuk!
We welcome you.
You got a promotion?
Thanks to me you've lived to become sergeant, right?
If I died, I'd have moved up to staff sergeant.
Imagine if I'd had the nerve to remove my foot?
I'm the one who saved your lives.
You're full of shit.
Move your army out of the way.
Then we can go head to head with those damn Yankees.
Only two years and two months?
Damn, we serve for 13 years!
I'm pretty quick with the gun.
I'm bored all the time so I practice a lot.
That water pistol?
Hey, just quit pissing your pants around mines.
Yeah, you're pretty fast.
But have you...
ever shot a man before?
I have, several times. Alright.
Okay. Please Stop.
Our comrade's been everywhere
Africa, the Middle East... He trained soldiers for 10 years!
You didn't know, did you?
That's right, huh?
Hey, Sergeant Lee.
What's important in battle isn't speed.
Combat skills? No such thing.
It's carrying yourself with composure and strength.
Then what's a great soldier like you doing guarding this post at your age?
Hey! You still have that mine fuse I gave you?
Don't lose it.
A Hold onto that and even bullets will pass you by.
Why do you always go crazy over American things?
Try it, and you'll see why Yankee stuff is so great.
Must've been expensive.
It's also good for picking stuff out of your teeth.
I said lay down!
I told you about this American shit...
What are you doing there away from your post?
It's not that, we were...
You think you're something because you've been abroad?
You think this is a playground?
You're at the very front line of our republic! The front line!
Hey. Take that damn dog to the butchers.
Lunch for tomorrow.
Our people count on us.
Don't let them down, okay?
Take care of yourself.
Watch out for landmines.
I said go!
There's more food on the other side!
That guy's so funny.
You're really handsome.
Tell me something I don't know.
Spit it out. You expect me to read your mind?
Must be nice. Only three months left to serve.
Nope, 87 days.
I'm worried about the rest of my time here.
Hey, you want me to introduce you to some friends?
Do I have to go?
Hey, after half a century of division...
Um... overcoming our history of agony and disgrace,
We're gonna open the dam to reunification. Okay?
Could we maybe open it later?
I've heard a lot about you.
I'm Oh Kyung Pil.
Hey. Private Nam.
You feel warm.
Ah! Feels warm.
What's wrong with people of the same blood
getting together and playing some games?
Is that such a crime? I mean, did we commit adultery?
Or give up military secrets?
We don't even know any secrets.
Out of the way...
Damn! I told you we should use pebbles!
What's so hard about this?
Wow! It's standing!
My father died young.
So I'm the only man in the house.
Is she really yours?
Don't you have anyone, brother? Come on, show us!
What? Don't be ridiculous.
But remember what that soldier who defected said?
Guards at the border are trained to draw us to their side.
He saved my life.
Why can't our republic make moon pies like this?
I was just wondering...
Don't you want to come down South?
You can eat Choco Pies till you burst.
I mean, only if you want to.
Lee Soo Hyuk.
I'm only going to say this once, so listen well.
My dream is...
That one day, our republic...
makes the best damn sweets on this peninsula.
Until then, all I can do is...
dream about these Choco Pies.
Forget it. You're all talk.
Sung Shik, stop these Commie bastards!
You don't need to rub it, just wipe it on with this.
Take them off.
First, shake it well like this.
Then you just spread it on.
This is how you do it. Like this.
Then after it dries, do it again.
Hey! Hurry up over there!
Move your asses!
we obtained word that
Northern troops are massing along the entire border.
We're at DEFCON 3.
Hey! You chicken?
Keep your cool, okay?
Just think of it as shooting off a round.
That's all it is, alright?
Let's not go over anymore.
It'll be Jung's birthday soon.
And you're almost out.
We should at least say goodbye.
After I'm out,
don't ever go there alone.
Brother, that day...
Was the North really going to attack?
How should I know?
The Yankees were about to bomb us. We supposed to just sit there?
So don't make any nuclear arms or missiles.
Hey, do I make them?
Why are you getting angry?
Stop talking about war.
Everyone just write a letter to your parents.
And one to Soo Jung, too.
If war really broke out,
would we have to shoot each other, too?
How about we write each other certificates or something?
''We hereby certify that Nam Sung Shik served the republic.
Signed, Sergeant Oh Kyung Pil and Private Jung Woo Jin.''
Something like that.
That's good idea! Right!
What a waste of time.
If the Yankee bastards play their war games,
we'll be obliterated. Zero.
Three minutes into the war, both countries would be destroyed.
A total wasteland. Don't you get it?
Man, this song reminds me of my mom.
Why did this singer have to die so young?
Let's have a toast...
to singer Kwang Suk.
Hey, squeeze in.
Aren't you going?
We have to go.
I taught you once, and you still can't do it?
No matter what , I can't get it to shine.
Let me see.
A soldier's has to get it right the first time.
I can't do this for you forever.
Thank you, comrade.
I can't help it.
I have something for you guys, too.
Where'd it go?
What is it?
What the hell did you eat?
Hey, open the door. Open it!
Why does he want to postpone the cross-examination?
Then tell this to General Pyo.
Whether Private Nam takes a leap,
or Sergeant Lee falls not shock, it's not my concern.
I don't have time to pamper the suspects.
Here are your depositions.
Read it and tell me if you want to change anything.
Oh! I'm sorry.
This is correct.
You recognize this? It's the crime scene.
Lieutenant Choi Man Soo.
Sergeant. Oh Kyung Pil.
And Private. Jung Woo Jin.
How many Southern soldiers attacked the post?
Are you sure?
This is Sergeant Lee Soo-Hyuk.
Do you recognize him?
A Southern puppet.
What is this?
What's going on here?
This is another soldier presumed to have been at the scene.
He's in a coma, so he couldn't make it today.
With what evidence?
During his interrogation, when told he would take a lie detector test,
Private Nam attempted suicide on the spot.
We have no choice but to consider this as a confession.
Therefore, I propose we start the investigation all over again.
We didn't come here to listen to your stories.
You son of a bitch!
You capitalist bastard! You know how long I've waited for this?
You know how long?
Take your hands off! I'll show you the power of our republic!
You capitalist pig!
Son of a bitch! Traitor to the people!
- Yankee puppet! - Sergeant Oh!
Long live the Chosun Labor Party!
Our honored leader...
Long live Supreme Commander Kim Jong-Il!
I'm sorry to make you come. I know you're still ill.
This states my dismissal from the JSA case from midnight tomorrow.
I heard about your father.
So you heard my father was a North Korean general?
How does that make you feel?
Like a friend.
I still have a bruise,
but you're clean.
Your grip must be stronger than Sergeant Oh's.
Alright, the real show starts now.
As soon as I met Soo Jung, I knew I had seen her face before.
And it wasn't hard to fingure out who she was.
This is a picture drawn by Private Jung.
This picture was found on Private Jung's body.
If the missing bullet broke Private Nam's alibi,
then this missing face
proves that the four soldiers must have been friends.
These are two completely different reports.
Which one I submit is up to you.
If you tell me the truth,
I won't leave any of this information for my successor.
Is that a threat?
It's a deal.
I don't care whether I go to jail or get a medal.
So what can you offer me,
if I tell you the truth?
Someone you tried to protect till the end...
Sergeant Oh's safety.
Comrade Choi, please calm down.
I'll explain everything.
What's going on here?
Please, put the gun down. You too, Soo Hyuk!
I put you on guard and you screw around with these puppets?
Arrest them now!
They came here to discuss coming to the North.
I'll take care of everything.
Hey, Jung Woo Jin! This is a direct order.
These scumbags are our enemies. Disarm them now.
I'll take full responsibility. Don't move!
Do what I say now,
and I'll overlook this treasonable act.
Do it now!
Comrade Oh, I'm sorry.
Put your gun down.
There's no other way.
I'll help you come to the North.
You can live with us okay?
Put the gun down first and we'll talk.
You know better. This asshole can't be trusted.
You said it yourself, that he's an ambitious prick.
He'll kill us both and say we infiltrated enemy territory.
I promise I'll protect you.
You still don't trust me?
Sung Shik, you trust me. Talk to him.
Could this be a trap?
Soo Hyuk, brother!
You remember when Comrade Oh saved you from the mine?
Please put the gun down, okay?
Fuck this 'brother' shit.
We're enemies, after all.
You said I was chicken, right?
Fine, see if I can kill this bastard or not.
Hey, Soo Hyuk!
We're all going to die this way.
Let's start over.
Put your guns down together.
You too, Woo Jin!
Just put them down.
Something's not right.
Listen to me.
Say you were kidnapped and then escaped.
You were never here. Got it?
Now go. There's no time!
Who the hell's that?
He looks like one of ours!
Soo Hyuk! Soo Hyuk!
Cover us! You bastards!
Hold your fire!
So that's how Private Jung ended up dying on his birthday.
I don't think about the dead.
Do you think you can forgive Private Nam and Sergeant Lee?
May I have one?
If this had happened at a Southern post,
I would've shot first.
I heard you're being discharged.
How does it feel to leave Panmunjom?
Sgt. Lee is being sent to Yongsan Hospital today.
Do you have a message for him?
He's made good use of it.
He said he's going to quit smoking.
You know that missing bullet?
Sgt. Oh threw it into the reservoir with the cassette player.
I guess I've left a stain on your career.
It doesn't matter.
I chose to fail.
Oh, there was one inconsistency in Sgt. Oh's testimony.
He said Pvt. Nam didn't kill Pvt. Jung.
It was you.
It all happened so quickly,
you must have remembered it wrong.
Or Sergeant Oh made a mistake.
But what does it matter who shot a second quicker or later?
I hope you get well soon.
