Movie 'Public Enemy 2' mobilizes the audience over 2 million

2005/02/07 Source

As movie 'Public Enemy 2' mobilizes the audience over 2 million on Feb. 6 in the nation since the movie's release on Jan. 27, the movie kept Korean movie's pride during the New Year Day consecutive holidays by the lunar calendar.

Movie 'Public Enemy 2' maintained box-office record No. 1 by mobilizing 430,000 audiences during the first week of Feb. too as the movie maintains currently screen numbers of 85 theaters in Seoul as well as 370 theaters in the country.

With its strong focus on story, "Another Public Enemy - Public Enemy 2" frequently pays scant attention to the visual aspects of filmmaking.

On the flip side, the director's attempt to shed light on the dark underbelly of Korean society, such as collusive ties between the political and business worlds or corruption in the academic sphere, works well as a social commentary.

Director Kang Woo-seok's increasing politicization has led some critics to speculate on who may be targeted in a prospective next sequel. Ex-presidents beware.
