Operation 'Chromite' is the Incheon Landing Operation. Along with the Normandy landing, the Incheon Landing Operation was recorded as the most successful amphibious operation in history. However, the movie <Incheon Landing Operation> illuminates the hidden true story behind the dramatic operation that everyone knows, and captures a new story on the screen.

<Incheon Landing Operation> is a war action blockbuster depicting the story of hidden heroes who risked everything to make the Incheon Landing Operation a success that changed the history of war.

It conveys a sense of dramatic emotion and urgency by adding a sense of scale and spectacle. General MacArthur's Incheon Landing Operation was a large-scale operation involving 75,000 Allied troops and 261 ships, but Incheon's waterways were narrow and the landing time was only 2 hours due to the world's worst tidal difference. It was an impossible operation with a success rate of 5000:1, which met with opposition from everyone.

Hidden Heroes in Incheon Landing Operation

General MacArthur became a hero by leading the successful Incheon Landing Operation that everyone believed was impossible. However, <Operation Incheon Landing> turns its attention to the nameless Korean heroes hidden behind them. From the naval intelligence unit carrying out General MacArthur's spy operation 'X-RAY' against North Korea, to the KLO unit (KLO – Korea Liaison Office, a spy unit belonging to the Allied Forces composed of Koreans) that will help the Incheon landing with them, we are doing well. The activities of other heroes in the Incheon Landing Operation that were not known are revived through the screen.

Behind the success of the Incheon Landing Operation, which was predicted to have a success rate of 5000:1, there was the devoted sacrifice of the Koreans who risked their lives for the operation.

Considering the situation in Incheon, where it is not easy to land with the tide, as well as to secure a waterway, opening the road to Incheon was in fact determining the success of the operation. And it was the Koreans whose names were not recorded properly, the main characters who secured the Allied sea route through the secret mission and lit the way to Incheon. They risked their lives and risked their lives to turn the tide of the North Korean military occupation of most of the Korean Peninsula, leaving behind their family and hometown. Director Lee Jae-han, who came to know about them through various materials related to the Incheon Landing, said, “The success of the Incheon Landing Operation was not due to General MacArthur alone, but to the actions of many unknown people. It was a great challenge in itself to deal with such a story, and it was a very meaningful work.” In this way, <Incheon Landing Operation>, which contains a great operation made possible by the noble sacrifice of those whose names and existence were unknown, will captivate the audience with the story of the hidden heroes who created the moment of reversal that overturned the tide of war.

With General MacArthur's decision to launch the Incheon Landing Operation, the Far East Military Command, which was stationed in Tokyo, considered sending US intelligence units to collect information, but due to the language barrier and the limitations of being unfamiliar with the local geography, this task is entrusted to the Republic of Korea Naval Intelligence Service. In response, Admiral Won-il Son, Chief of the General Staff of the Republic of Korea Navy, accepted the request of General MacArthur of the Far East Command, and secretly instructed the mission to collect information necessary for the Incheon Landing Operation.
