Review: Soar Into The Sun (Korea) (2012)

Rain is back!

Synopsis: A South Korean Elite Black Eagles Air Force pilot Tae-hun (RAIN a.k.a. JUNG Ji-hoon) finds himself transferred to a combat flying unit after a cocky, unplanned, and dangerous air show demonstration.  On the first day of his transfer to F15K, he meets Cheol-hui (YU Jun-sang), the unit’s own top gun. Tae-hun is free-spirited, whereas Cheol-hui plays by the rules, and the two come into conflict almost immediately. However, Tae-hun quickly befriends his other colleagues: Dae-seo (KIM Sung-soo), Yu-jin (LEE Ha-na), and Seok-hyeon. He also falls in love with Se-yeong (SHIN Se-kyung), who is in charge of maintenance. Tae-hun continues his free-spirited ways and his antics get suspended from duty. Then one day, reconnaissance mission turns into an unexpected incident, ending in Dae-seo’s untimely death and Seok-hyeon’s disappearance. Initially blaming Cheol-hui for the tragedy, he and Tae-hun eventually come to an emotional understanding. Now the F15K make preparations to stop a war and rescue their missing comrade.

This is the lovely eye candy for the dudes watching the show :) She's so pretty!!!! She even looks good without make up :D

Verdict: 7/10. Like a typical Korean drama, this movie has all the makings of a successful Korean film. It has two couples, death, drama, comedy, and an above average storyline. Even though it was in Korean, I really enjoyed it as the subtitles even managed to capture the light hearted banter amongst the actors.

Really need to salute the Director, Kim Dong-Won for being able to bring forth the emotion in the movie, whether it was humour, or sadness. I have to admit, I teared a few times during the movie, cos it was so sad!!! and the expression on the actors' and actresses faces were so real and relatable.

The cheeky dude who has captured the hearts of many young girls did a good job in this film :)

Definitely a must watch for those who are die-hard Korean movie buffs, and for those who want action, I would recommend this as well.

It opens 8 November, so catch it when it does!
