'Mafia' Sequel Hits 5-Million Viewer Mark

2005/10/04 Source

The romantic gangster comedy "Marrying the Mafia II" hit the 5-million-viewer mark on Monday. It is the 10th domestic film to reach that mark in history.

The film, which opened Sept. 8, was seen by 4.96 million people by Sunday and went over the 5-million mark the next day, according to its distributor Showbox.

Aside from "Marrying the Mafia II", two other films brought in over 5 million viewers this year: "Running Boy" - "Marathon" and "Welcome to Dongmakgol".

Previously, only seven films have ever surpassed that mark. The first to do so was "Shiri" in 1999, which was seen by 6.2 million people. Last year, "Taegukgi" and "Silmido" made history by becoming the first films to go over the 11-million-viewer mark.
