The animated flick set the record earlier in the day based on a real-time box-office tally from the Korean Film Council, beating the previous No. 2 “Avatar,” which sold 13.48 million tickets from 2009 to 2010.
Released on Nov. 21 in South Korea, the film has been trailing the all-time most-watched foreign film in the country, Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame.” It has risen to the sixth spot on the most-viewed list for all films.
It has generated box-office revenue of US$451.41 million in North America and US$1.32 billion worldwide.
