Pain and suffering with a side of Korean patriotism is in full display in the glossy movie stills for upcoming period movie Battleship Island. Starring Hwang Jung Min, Song Joong Ki, and So Ji Sub, the movie chronicles the real life forced labor camp that was set up by the Japanese on the industrial island of Hashima (nickname Gunkanjima which means battleship island). The camp was run by the Japanese with forced Korean and Chinese labor with an estimated 1300 deaths due to the harsh working and living conditions. The movie centers around Song Joong Ki’s independence fighter who infiltrates the camp to liberate a freedom fighting leader, with So Ji Sub as a fighter on the island and Hwang Jung Min there to survive and protect his young daughter. Together they rally about 400 Korean laborers to escape the island.
