LoglineThis film was born out of donations of €130,000 from good-will Koreans domestic and foreign, most of whom are Facebook friends with the Director. Since the Korean War broke out 67 years has passed. Yet, the situation on the Korean Peninsula is still tragically and acutely confrontational and far from unified. This story was shot around late October, 2015 and interwoven into this film is the South/North division situation from a perspective of the loving “me” living in the South, who had a lover suddenly deceased in the Army. Thus, it’s entitled “The Southern Limit Line.”The Southern Limit Line (SLL) is a 155-mile-long line drawn transversely across the peninsula – 2km south from the Military Demarcation Line (MDL). This film, the Southern Limit Line, is to portray the pains burdened on the young people in the South Korean society.For the past 64 post-war years from the armistice of the Korean War in 1953, over 60,000 young people have lost their lives in the compulsory military services. Such a big loss occurred from what the military describes ‘non-combatant casualties.’ As many as 60,000 young men died despite no-war state of the confrontation. Statistically speaking, approximately 1,000 young lives are lost annually due to compulsory military services. How come?
