At a press conference on Wednesday, actor Liam Neeson expressed concern about how North Korea might react to the historical Korean movie “Operation Chromite,” in which he plays the lead role of Gen. Douglas MacArthur. MacArthur led the United Nations Command in the Korean War until he was removed in 1951 by President Harry S. Truman.
“Operation Chromite” is slated for release in Korea on July 27. It is based on the historical Battle of Incheon, which was the U.N.’s successful amphibious invasion of the city. Incheon was captured by North Korea at the time. The operation reversed the war in favor of the United Nations and South Korea and “Operation Chromite” was the code name of the battle.
Neeson added that he is worried about the North’s reaction, as the communist regime claims that the Korean War ended with its victory, although it actually ended in a truce.
