"The Thieves", No. 2 Most Successful Movie In Korean Film History

2012/08/31 Source

Many saw it coming, but the movie "The Thieves" has just broken another record.

According to the movie's distributors, as of 5 PM on August 30th, "The Thieves" had attracted about 12,310,000 people. This brings its total higher than the 12,302,831 that the movie "The King and the Clown" brought in several years ago. Now the only movie between it and the #1 spot is "The Host", which was the highest grossing Korean film to date, with 13,019,740 viewers.

"The Thieves" was able to reach the 12.31 million mark in just 37 days after its release, which was a day faster than the movie "The Host".

The ultimate #2 highest grossing movie in Korea is about a group of 10 thieves from Korea and China, that are all after a very valuable diamond called "The Tear Of The Sun", held in a casino in Macau. The movie features an A-list cast of Kim Yun-seok, Kim Hye-soo, Lee Jung-jae, Jun Ji-hyun, Kim Hye-sook, Oh Dal-soo, and Kim Soo-hyun.
