Set in 1920, The Battle: Roar to Victory chronicles the Bongo-dong Battle, the first large-scale military conflict between the Korean Independence Army and the Japanese Army in Manchuria, and one which provided momentum to Korean independence forces during future battles throughout the 1920s.

Led by Hae-chul (YOO Hae-jin), a Korean Independence Army force carries out operations in order to deliver necessary funds to the Korean Provisional Government in Shanghai. Hae-chul is reunited with Jang-ha (RYU Jun-yeol), a young squad commander who has been tasked with defending Samdunja. Together, they ambush Japanese soldiers and successfully defeat them. Yet the danger remains as they are now being chased by Japanese forces and Hae-chul finds out that Jang-ha must still complete a crucial and dangerous task.

The Battle: Roar to Victory features the enticing pairing of major stars YOO Hae-jin (LUCK-KEY, 2016) and RYU Jun-yeol (Believer, 2018). The film actually marks the second on-screen collaboration of the pair, following 2017’s A Taxi Driver, in which they both played Gwangju residents. In the director’s chair is WON Shin-yun, who recently made the SUL Kyung-gu led serial killer thriller MEMOIR OF A MURDERER (2017) and the North Korean spy action-drama The Suspect (2013), among others.
