12.12: The Day
In 1979, after the assassination of President Park, the fate of South Korea was in limbo. Less than two months later, the Commander of the Defense Security Command Chun Doo-hwan initiated a coup d'état on 12th December. Based on this actual event, director Kim Sung-soo brings us back to the fleeting moment when the country was a step away from democracy before Chun’s dictatorship in the 1980s. The gripping story of this all-out battle in Seoul made it the highest-grossing film of 2023 in Korea.
