korean-action

anonymous asked:

So I just watched "The Man From Nowhere", it was in the gory crime movie section on Netflix. I don't know if you watch much Korean action but this was so violent but beautifully touching at the same time it blew my mind. I was loving the action and violence but by the end I was bawling like a baby not even exaggerating. I guess what I'm saying is thanks for giving me the nudge towards more Korean cinema 🤓

I own that movie! (my god what don’t I own?) 

Korean cinema is sooooo good. I honestly think their action/crime/thriller/suspense movies are the best. 

Korean movies are also Quentin Tarantino approved :P

ok so can we just talk about noblesse? please… and btw if you haven’t read it yet then you can read it for free online here: http://kissmanga.com/Manga/Noblesse

one minute these hot guys with unimaginable powers are trying to save the world from their enemies while still looking attractive as hell

and the next minute you see these same dorks like this where rai (the main character who has all the power in the world) doesn’t know how to operate a banana

has an obsession with ramen

to the point where he must have it during their long missions

and has a dork/crazy of servant (frankenstein)

along with rai’s friends decided to call themselves rk as in rai’s knights (even though they are the ones that need protecting)

well as long as rai is happy

U.S. Marine machine gunner Corporal Leonard Hayworth, 22 years old, weeps upon realizing that he and his men, who have taken heavy casualties, are out of ammunition. “His eyes swung searchingly along the edge of the ridge, then up into the rainy sky. Slow, heavy tears started down across his face.”

When it seemed that … machine-gunner Cpl Hayworth was shattered beyond all hope, a black-jawed, smiling old veteran crawled over … Sitting shoulder to shoulder with the younger man, he calmly told him how they were still holding the line … The grimy old veteran talked a feeble smile back upon the face of the corporal. Tears still streaked his face up under his helmet where the rain could not wash them away, but the Old Marine seemed not to notice. Korea, August 1950.“ (This Is War!)

Weeks after taking this picture, while still in Korea, David Douglas Duncan handed Hayworth a copy of the September 18, 1950, issue of LIFE in which the above photo appeared. “Hayworth looked at this huge picture of himself, in the biggest photo magazine in the world,” Duncan recalls. “He didn’t say anything. He just smiled. He looked like Errol Flynn, about 6-foot-3, a tall, handsome Marine. And no one’s saying anything, looking at this picture of him, crying, and an old sergeant behind him says, ‘We all cry sometimes.’ The next day, September 25th – the three-month anniversary of the start of the war – a sniper shot Corporal Hayworth between the eyes.”

In Action: PPSh-41

Designed by Georgi Shapagin the PPSh-41 became Soviet Russia’s iconic submachine gun of World War Two. Over six million PPSh-41s were made worldwide between 1941 and 1950 becoming an integral part of the Soviet Union’s small arms doctrine. 

In the photograph above we see five Soviet troops armed with PPSh-41s manning a trench system. The PPSh-41 fed from either a 35-round box magazine or a 71-round drum magazine which along with its aerated barrel shroud, gives the weapon its instantly recognisable appearance. 

Shapagin’s weapon, the Pistolet-pulemyot Shpagina (or Shpagin Machine Pistol), fired from an open bolt and chambered the Soviet Union’s automatic pistol cartridge 7.62x25mm Tokarev and had a very high cyclic rate of up to 900 rounds per minute. This was ideal for suppressive fire and street fighting where suppression and point shooting were common.

The impetus for the PPSh-41′s development was the Soviet Unions lack of a suitable cheap submachine gun following encounters with the Finish Army’s Suomi KP31. The PPD-40 which was hurriedly adopted was too complicated and expensive to manufacture in the desired quantities to equip the Red Army. In response the PPSh-41 was better suited to mass production using metal stamping to allow factories to churn out thousands of guns a day. A finished PPSh-41 could be manufactured in approximately 6-7 hours.

The PPSh-41 proved to be a robust and reliable weapon with a chrome-lined bore to allow less frequent cleaning and the use of corrosive ammunition. Despite its smaller size it was not a light weapon weighing 5.45kgs when loaded with a 71-round drum. The weapon’s high rate of fire caused rapid muzzle climb despite its weight and the addition of a compensator.

Following the war the weapon remained in the Soviet Union’s arsenal for many years and was widely shared with other Communist states with many Soviet satellite states and allies manufacturing copies (such as the Chinese Type 50). They were widely used by North Korean and Chinese forces during the Korean War where they excelled during close-range engagements. 

In 1943, the even simpler submachine gun, the PPS designed by Alexei Sudayev, was introduced alongside the PPSh-41. However, the PPSh-41 dominated Soviet inventories with entire platoons often being equipped with them. The operational use of submachine guns like the PPSh-41 greatly influenced the Red Army’s tactical doctrine with firepower becoming key. 

The PPSh-41s continued to be used in conflicts around the world throughout the 20th century with examples still being seen in conflict zones today.
