8th Korean Film in History to Make It Over the Mark
On Saturday evening (February 23rd), Miracle in Cell No. 7
became only the 8th Korean film to attract over 10 million viewers at the local box office. The surprise hit has blazed its way to success since its release in January. As of midnight on February 24th, the prison-set comedy-drama has accumulated 10,386,785 admissions.
Last year saw a record two films crossed the 10 million mark when the all-star ensemble caper film The Thieves
soared over 13 million to become the highest grossing Korean film of all time. A few months later, the LEE Byung-hun
period drama Masquerade
dominated the charts for months to eventually cross 12 million admissions.
