The Daewoo Precision Industries K2 is a South Korean assault rifle. It is used primarily by the South Korean military and is manufactured by Daewoo Precision Industries.
Shoulder-fired and gas-operated, the K2 is a selective-fire assault rifle that usually feeds from a 20 or 30 round STANAG magazine and is chambered to fire the 5.56mm NATO round. The K2 supplanted the M16A1 rifle in frontline South Korean military use in 1984. The K2 formally entered South Korean military service in 1987.

“Concision in style, precision in thought, decision in life.”
—Victor Hugo (18021885)
“All industries are brought under the control of such people [film producers] by Capitalism. If the capitalists let themselves be seduced from their pursuit of profits to the enchantments of art, they would be bankrupt before they knew where they were. You cannot combine the pursuit of money with the pursuit of art.”
