Kim Han-min's "Admiral" rages on...

After eight years as Korea's highest grossing film, Bong Joon-ho's hybrid hit, "The Host", has finally been toppled by Kim's epic "Admiral". "The Host" (which stars the prolific and prominent Song Kang-ho) claimed over 13M admissions back in 2006, but Kim Han-min's seafaring strategist (spectacularly spearheaded by Choi Min-sik) has already surged past Bong's buoy with over 14.6M ($111M)--the ultimate box office record to fall in its wake--and from here on out, it's simply history in the making...More

Kim's "Admiral" surpasses 10M in record time…

Kim Han-min's cinematic celebration of the legendary Korean admiral Yi Sun-sin continued its record-breaking form as it powered past the 10 million admissions mark with ease. Over this past weekend Kim's period epic claimed over 2.5M stubs (58.8%) over 1,335 screens to become the fastest Korean film to reach that milestone, and now stands as the tenth highest grossing Korean film of all time. The film depicts Yi Sun-sin's famous victory at the Battle of Myeongnyang where, against all odds, he defeated the Japanese navy on the Myeongnyang Strait by forcing the Japanese fleet into the narrow pass and made strategic use of the straights strong and shifting currents. "The Admiral: Roaring Currents" now has a total tally of 10.7M admissions ($81.1M); an incredible achievement considering the film was only released on the 30th of last month...More
