Be prepared to double up with laughter as the Korean Box Office hit comedy movie 6/45 comes straight to your screens via Astro First and unifi TV On Demand. Directed by Park Gyu-Tae (Bunt) and starring Ko Kyoung-pyo, Lee Yi-kyung, Eum Moon-suk and Kwak Dong-yeon, 6/45 is a comedic encounter between North and South Korean soldiers over a 5.7 billion won winning lottery ticket that crosses the Military Demarcation Line.
South North sergeant “Chun-woo” is in his final weeks of military duty when a top-prize winning lottery ticket lands at his feet. While he dreams of claiming the winning prize money, a gust of wind accidentally blows the lottery ticket over the Military Demarcation Line to North Korea.
“Chun-woo” risks crossing the Military Demarcation Line to retrieve it but waiting for him there is Yong Ho, a North Korean soldier who finds the ticket and claiming “Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers”.
With no conclusion to the rightful owner of the lottery ticket and prize money, each side enlisted the help of their own comrades to participate in the negotiation. An intense and hilarious confrontation between the North and South Korean soldiers begins as they battle out their wits to claim their 5.7 billion won dream!
