Movie Observation 1-Taeguki Many Koreans will never forget their experience during the war between North Korea and South Korea. My grandparents (mother’s father and mother) were both affected by it as it was a life changing moment in their lives. Taeguki only showed me a glimpse of what my grandparents might have went through. My grandmother escaped from North Korea to South Korea and was able to start her new life in South Korea, but many of her family members were killed during the war and she does not know if anyone else survived after the war and just waited for family members to return like the mother in Taeguki . One of her cousins served in the military like the main characters Lee Jintae and Lee Jinseok and just like Lee Jintae, her cousin was killed in action but she did not hear of the news until years later.

Also, if I could have directed the movie, I would not have let Jintaes wife be killed because she was innocent and was only thinking of her family when she signed up for food....
