Kim, who plays Lt. Cmdr. Yoon Young-ha picked the scenes depicting the pitched battle between South and North Korean vessels.


Jin, who took on the role of Chief Petty Officer Han Sang-guk, singled out the scene where his character and enlisted sailors share noodles on deck.


Lee’s pick was the scenes showing the crew of the sunken South Korean ship supporting the South Korean football team in the Korea-Japan World Cup.


Lt. Cmdr. Yoon Young-ha was killed during the battle, Chief Petty Officer Han Sang-guk was found dead after the battle while Lee’s character Petty Officer Second Class Park Dong-hyuk died of wounds sustained during the battle 22 days after the incident.
