My Way is a 2011 South Korean war film directed by Kang Je-gyu. Two rival marathoners, Korean rickshaw driver Kim Jun-shik (Dong-gun Jang) and Japanese-born Tatsuo Hasegawa (Jô Odagiri), are put into front-line service with the Imperial Japanese Army, Jun-shik a draftee and Tatsuo a fiercely Nationalist colonel. Captured by the Red Army during the Battle of Khalkhin Gol, they endure a harsh journey that takes them from a forced-labor camp in Russia to battle against the Wehrmacht and ultimately defend Omaha Beach from the Americans on D-Day.

The following weapons were used in the film My Way:



Colt M1911A1

A Wehrmacht officer uses the Colt M1911A1 during the Battle of Hedosk. This is not necessarily inaccurate, as captured M1911A1 pistols were used by German forces designated as the "Pistole 660(a)". Close examination shows that the gun is not actually fired, with muzzle flashes added in post-production.

Nambu Type 14

Tatsuo Hasegawa (Jô Odagiri) and several other Japanese officers use the Nambu Type 14. Note that the large trigger guard makes this a "late" Nambu, which would be inaccurate for the Battle of Khalkhin Gol.

Nambu Type 14 - 8x22mm Nambu

Tokarev TT-33

The Tokarev TT-33 with post-1947 finer cocking serrations is used by Red Army prison guards and Commissar's guards. Tatsuo Hasegawa (Jô Odagiri) also uses a presumably captured TT-33 to execute retreating Japanese soldiers at Khalkhin Gol.

Submachine Guns

M1928A1 Thompson

At least one of the US soldiers attacking Omaha Beach carries an M1928A1 Thompson.

M1A1 Thompson

Several US soldiers landing at Omaha Beach carry the M1A1 Thompson.

M1A1 Thompson - .45 ACP
The M1A1 Thompson can be seen in the hands of the front-and-center soldier, as well as a bullet hole in his helmet. The soldiers are from the 4th Infantry Division, which is inaccurate as they were not present at Omaha Beach.
Still holding his Thompson, the slain GI falls.


Both Red Army and Wehrmacht soldiers use the PPSh-41 (not inaccurate, many German soldiers fighting on the Ostfront used captured PPSh-41s). However, the weapon does make an appearance amongst the labor camp guards in scenes set pre-1941, which would make it anachronistic.

Arisaka Type 38

The Arisaka Type 38 is the main weapon of the Imperial Japanese Army, including Kim Jun-shik (Dong-gun Jang) and Lee Jong-dae (Kim In-kwon).

Karabiner 98k

The main weapon of the Wehrmacht soldiers is the Karabiner 98k. Oddly enough, several US soldiers also use the 98k - possibly because of an inadequate number of US rifles.

Karabiner 98k "Kriegsmodell"

Karim (Ismail Deniz), an Eastern Battalion soldier of Middle-Eastern origin can be seen with a Karabiner 98k "Kriegsmodell" rifle, a late war version of the Kar98k intended to simplify production. Specifically, this rifle is a "semi-Kriegsmodell" as it incorporates some simplification features (simpler screw-retained barrel bands and no bayonet lug or cleaning rod) but not all (it still has the disk on the buttstock to aid in disassembly of the bolt).

Karabiner 98k Sniper Rifle

Shirai (Fan Bingbing), a Chinese guerrilla sniper, uses what appears to be a Karabiner 98k Sniper Rifle fitted with a ZF39 scope on a side rail mount. The choice of weapon is inaccurate, but since the film was shot in Latvia and the weapon is never seen in much detail, it is probably meant to stand in for the more accurate Type Zhongzheng Rifle.

Mauser Rifle

Some Mauser short rifles which appear to be the M1895 Chilean Mauser are carried by German soldiers. They can mainly be seen in the background.

Mosin Nagant M91/30

The majority of Red Army soldiers are armed with the Mosin Nagant M91/30 rifle, including the Japanese and Korean draftees.

MG 42

The MG 42 is the main machine gun of the Wehrmacht soldiers. All scenes of the MG42 firing seem to erroneously depict its rate of fire at around 800-900 rpm, significantly slower than the 1200-1800 rpm it was actually capable of. Also, note that its appearance in the Battle of Hedosk is inaccurate; the battle is set in 1941, a year before the MG42 was adopted. Kim Jun-shik (Dong-gun Jang) and Tatsuo Hasegawa (Jô Odagiri) also use the MG42 during the D-Day landings.
