‘Dreams Come True’ is a movie in which 2000 hit Joint Security Area (JSA) meets the 2002 World Cup. It follows how soldiers from both sides of the Togel Singapore De-Militarised Zone, that divides the peninsula, attempt to get together and watch South Korea’s famous run to the semi-finals eight years ago.

With North and South Korea both heading to the World Cup for the first time ever, there couldn’t be a better time to release the film – and at least that was how it looked until recently.
