R2B: Return to Base (Riteontu Be-iseu) is a 2012 South Korean aviation action drama film loosely based on the critically acclaimed 1986 film Top Gun. The film stars Rain, Shin Se-kyung and Yoo Jun-sang in lead roles. It was directed by Kim Dong-won and is a remake of Shin Sang-ok’s 1964 film Red Scarf. Tae-Hoon (Rain) is the youngest member of the elite flight team “Black Eagles,” which consists of Korea’s top combat pilots. Tae-Hoon is gifted pilot, but he is also a troublemaker, filled with curiosity and playfulness. One day, when the team puts on an exhibition at an air show, he ruins the exhibition. Afterwards, Tae-Hoon is kicked out of the “Black Eagles” and transferred to the 21 combat flight unit, which is led by Dae-Seo. Tae-Hoon begins to rely on Dae-Seo like a real older brother. Meanwhile, Tae-Hoon finds himself at odds with Cheol-Hee, who is rigid, and thought of as the best pilot in the 21 combat flight unit. Tae-Hoon prepares to take on Cheol-Hee in a flight contest. Tae-Hoon asks head of maintenance Se-Young (Shin Se-Kyung) for help. Then, up in the sky in Yeouido, an unidentified fighter plane appears, and Tae-Hoon, Dae-Seo, Yoo-Jin and Seok-Hyun must make a sortie. It was released on 15 August 2012. Republic of Korea Air Force was heavily involved to support filming. The film was the final acting project for Rain, before he enlisted to serve his mandatory military service in October after filming wrapped in September 2011. The film is also known under the alternate titles Black Eagle and Soar Into the Sun.
