Films are a kind of mass piece of art, it becomes clear which role conflict films play in the South Korean film history. After Korea War in 1950 the theme "division" was often treated and is still mentioned frequently. As an independent film genre, conflict films developed in close connection with the land division and history shows again and again the importance of this issue in the society and the strong influence on the different areas of the country. In this analysis conflict films mean films that make the issue of the divide of the country and the relationship to North Korea the topic of the film. The Korean conflict films have a close relationship with this political situation and the portrayal and theme of North Korea are presented in different ways by different generations of film makers. After the Korean War in the year 1950 the topic of the division of the country was often portrayed and still is until today. In this work five example films are chosen and analysed from the perspective of how the current social problems since the end of 2000, arising due to the situation of the country being divided into South- and North Korea, are represented. The focus is on the life conditions in North Korea and that of the North Korean refugees in the South Korean films. Thereby, it is examined how the film aspects have changed North Korea and the country, the "physical reality".
