Question – Taegukgi – The Brotherhood of War – South Korean Film October 28, 2019

I am looking for a DVD copy or download from a reputable site with English sub-titles or audio of this movie to purchase. I found a legal way that should work to get a Region 2 or 3 DVD region to work without having to get another DVD player. It’s a sad, but poignant movie.

My friend purchased the movie Taegukgi (Brotherhood of War) –  on iTunes. It’s in Korean with no English sub-titles or audio. He tried to find a version with English sub-titles or audio, but they aren’t sold in the U. S. outside of some DVD copies on EBay that are region restricted – Europe or Asia. has a link that shows unavailable at this time, but with the notice

Our agreements with the content provider don’t allow purchases of this title at this time.

I see similar restrictions on other sites that offer the movie.

    • No, I haven’t. Wonder if it’s available on one of the pay channels (Hulu, Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime)? A friend has all of those. He’s the one that showed me The Brotherhood of War. It sounds like something he would watch.

      On the other movie, there are English sub-titles, but only for non-U. S. versions. According to a friend, if I bought a copy of it, burned it to a DVD and played it on a standard DVD player on a laptop, it should get around the region restriction. That’s cheaper than buying a DVD player that’s plays the regions it works in.

      • Looks like it’s available on Netflix. Going to check with my friend to see if he’s game to check it out. Unlike him, I like to check out a movie using Wikipedia, IMDB, and other sources beforehand. He likes to be surprised so I won’t give him too many details, other than the basic premise.

        I read Night of the Living Trekkies, about zombies invading a Star Trek convention. About halfway through, it was slow going so I read the last few paragraphs at the end of the book. The ending intrigued me enough to keep reading. It came out 2010 and thought the ending was leading to a sequel. As of a few minutes ago, I haven’t seen a sequel show up.

      • I don’t remember if I blogged on it, but back in the late 1980s or early 1990s, I watched a murder mystery. Five minutes into it, I predicted the murderer, the murder victim, and the innocent who was going to be framed for the murder. I watched it expecting a plot twist, but there wasn’t one. That’s why I like reading about books and movies up front. My friend invited me last minute to Ad Aspera. Had I the time, I would have researched it and said no thanks. Great special effects, but it was too confusing as to what was going on. I am not a fan of a lot of jumping back and forth between the present and the past. A few flashbacks not a problem. In some cases, it was obvious when the switch happened, but other times I had to look it up later as I wasn’t sure – now or the past.
