According to the Korean Film Council, within its first day of release "An Honest Candidate" earned 109,529 admissions and has a comfortable plurality of online reservations going into the weekend.
The likely dominance of "An Honest Candidate" at the South Korean box office suggests that the horror movie "The Closet" will close out its run above a million admissions, with "An Honest Candidate" likely achieving similar results.
"An Honest Candidate" stars Ra Mi-ran as a perennially dishonest political candidate who is forced to tell only the truth in the final stretch before election day. It's the third comedy film for veteran actress Ra Mi-ran since 2019, and the second in which she is listed as the main star. The first two being "The Dude in Me" and "Miss and Mrs Cops". A strong performance for "An Honest Candidate" will likely cement Ra Mi-ran's reputation as a strong box office draw.
