In the Fiat-link DynaMike wrote something from South Korea - but didn't have South Korea left-side-traffic? There are some US-military-trucks too see - Vietnam? But for the vietnam of the 70ies (all vehicles are not newer) the streets are too good and too big.

The characters and letters on the banner over the bus are looking Korean. It's not Thai, Vietnamese neither.

A glance at the IMDB would show that this is a South Korean film.
Quote This movie is based on actual events. After North Korean commandos tried to assassinate South Korean President Park Chung Hee in 1972, the Southern Government set up a unit to kill North Korean President Kim Il Sung. The unit was made up of prisoners sentenced to death for various offenses. During their preparation, the South Koreans scrapped the idea and allegedly were going to kill the prisoners to keep the whole thing a secret. The prisoners got wind of this and revolted.

IIRC, the Japanese colonial regime had imposed left hand traffic on Korea. Both North and South switched to driving on the right as a sign that they had broken free from Japanese domination.

The trivia is incorrect- the North Koreans attempted to kill Park Chung Hee in 1968, and the South Korean assassination team was disbanded in 1971 when relations began to improve between the Koreas. While all the members of the team were depicted to have died in the movie, most of the men in the real team apparently are still alive.
