The Host, director Bong Joon-ho's third feature film about a monstrous mutant emerging from the Han River in Seoul, has attracted 4 million viewers in the shortest time ever. According to the film's distributor Show Box Media Plex, a total of 4,228,786 people have seen the film for seven days since it was released on July 27.

The previous record holder was "Taegukgi" (2003), whose total number of viewers reached the figure 10 days after it was released. "King and the Clown" (2005), which set the new box office record last year, took 17 days to attract the same number of viewers.

With the film screened at 620 cinemas nationwide, the record-breaking success of The Host is expected to go on.
