Operation Chromite


Based on the real-life events of the Battle of Inchon, John H. Lee’s period actioner centres on South Korean Navy Special Forces captain Jang Hak-soo (Lee Jung-jae) and seven members of the KLO intelligence service who disguise themselves as a North Korean inspection unit in order to infiltrate a North Korean army command centre in Inchon.


Jang and his officers’ directives from U.S. Army General Douglas MacArthur (Liam Neeson) are: one, recon enemy forces in Inchon and secure the mine chart; two, kidnap Ryu Jang-choon, the second-highest ranking officer in the command centre in order to acquire intel on the naval mine location; three, on D-Day, switch on the light in the Palmido lighthouse as a signal to the main UN forces.


Despite growing suspicion from North Korea’s brilliant tactician, Commander Lim Gye-jin (Lee Beom-soo), Jang and his team successfully carry out the first part of their mission with the help of an underground information network. But soon after, their true identity is revealed and only a small number of Jang’s team manages to flee.


While on the run, Jang meets Han Chae-sun (Jin Se-yun), who works for a North Korean Forces’ hospital and has staunch loyalties to North Korea. Nevertheless, she decides to assist Jang and the remaining KLO officers.  


Despite losing most of his team, Jang risks all to kidnap Ryu. But time is quickly running out putting the mission’s success in jeopardy.
