Cha seung won over the border movie trailer 2006

Over the Border (Hangul: 국경의 남쪽; RR: Gukgyeong-ui Namjjok), also known as South of the Border, is a 2006 South Korean melodrama film. It is Ahn Pan-seok's feature film directorial debut.



Kim Sun-ho is a horn player for the Mansoodae Art Company, Pyongyang's state orchestra. He comes from a well-to-do family in North Korea and is about to marry his sweetheart, War Memorial guide Lee Yeon-hwa. One day, Sun-ho's family receives a letter from his grandfather in Seoul, whom they had thought was dead. They begin to exchange letters, but when the authorities discover their correspondence, this puts the Kim family in grave danger. They decide to flee North Korea and defect to the South, where they are initially penniless and friendless. Devastated that he had to leave Yeon-hwa behind, Sun-ho works hard to save enough money to help her escape North Korea and join him. But one day, news reaches him that Yeon-hwa has married another man. Slowly he emerges from his heartbreak and despair to find a way to adapt to life in the South, and eventually marries a kind South Korean woman named Seo Kyung-joo. But his peaceful life is again disrupted when he learns that Yeon-hwa has defected to the South, and contrary to what he had heard, she isn't married at all.
