The movie "The Handmaiden" topped the charts on its first day of release.

According to the Korean Film Council, "The Handmaiden" rounded up a total of 289,424 on the 1st of June. The accumulated number is expected to be around 301,192.

This is a new record for an adult rated film this year. It beats other adult rated films such as "Inside Men" (231,219), "The Man From Nowhere" (130,766), "The New World" (168,935) and others.

"The Handmaiden" unfortunately couldn't go past "Hwayi : A Monster Boy" (360,000) but its record is meaningful for a movie based on the subject of homosexuality.

"The Handmaiden" is based on the Japanese Invasion in the 1930s about a lady named Hideko (Kim Min-hee) who inherits a fortune from her parents, a servant named Sook-hee (Kim Tae-ri), a fraud and count (Ha Jung-woo) and the lady's guardian (Cho Jin-woong). It is directed by the infamous Park Chan-wook.
