SEOUL, Dec. 7 (Korea Bizwire) – South Korean film “Inside Men” extended its historic run at the box office on Monday and was on pace to become the fastest November film to surpass 5 million in attendance.
According to figures by Korean Film Council, the thriller had garnered just over 4.95 million viewers through Sunday, and was expected to reach over 5 million on Monday.
It would then become the fastest film that opened in November — typically a slow month in Korean cinema — to get past the milestone, doing so in 19 days. It would also be the fasted R-rated film to reach the 5 million plateau.
Starring Lee Byung-hun, Cho Seung-woo and Baek Yun-shik, “Inside Men” portrays the sometimes symbiotic, sometimes parasitic relationships between politicians, the press, the wealthy, law enforcement authorities and organized criminals in South Korea. It has topped the weekend box office for the past three weeks.
