KT is a 2002 Japanese-South Korean film directed by Junji Sakamoto with a screenplay by Haruhiko Arai. It is based on the kidnapping of Kim Dae-jung by agents of Park Chung-hee in August 1973 while on a trip to Tokyo. He was released in Seoul after five days.


The story is centered on Masuo Tomita, a Japanese intelligence officer who helped arrange for South Korean agents to kidnap and try to kill Park Chung-hee's enemy Kim Dae-jung, who was in exile in Tokyo. Tomita went along with the plan to save a South Korean teacher Lee Jeong-mi, whom he loved.
