SEOUL, Dec. 22 (Korea Bizwire) — “My Love, Don’t Cross That River,” the documentary film directed by Jin Mo-young, has attracted 2 million viewers in 24 days since its opening in Korea.
According to box office figures compiled by the Korean Film Council, the popular movie had attracted 2,002,490 viewers as of December 20. The film drew 2 million viewers 23 days faster than the previous record-holding documentary ‘Old Partner’ in 2008.
Although the film has been on the big screen for 4 weeks now, its popularity shows no sign of losing momentum. The film is now screening at 669 theaters and has been shown 3,336 times. Other films opened on December 17, but ‘My Love, Don’t Cross That River’ still recorded a 40% seat share, which is currently the highest percentage among newly opened films.
‘My Love, Don’t Cross That River’ is now showing in multiplexes rather than art houses, competing with and doing well against blockbusters.
