Watching R-Point and so far so good.
From  Wikipedia:
“The film is set in 1972 during the Vietnam   War. A group of South Korean soldiers from Battalion 53 fail to  report back from a strategically important island 150 kilometers south  of Saigon referred to as R-Point. The soldiers have been  missing for 6 months and are presumed dead, until a shortwave radio transmission from R-Point  is received from the missing soldiers. The transmission continues at  irregular intervals over the next 3 months, repeating the same message -  “Donkey 30, Butterfly, do you copy? Donkey 30, Butterfly, do you copy?  We are dying…” This prompts HQ to dispatch a search-and-rescue party  out to find the missing men, even though the sole survivor of the team  insists that he saw all of them die and that he was the one who  collected their dog-tags.”
It’s streaming on NetFlix,  so check it out if you’re able to!
