Actor Lee Byun-hun's latest film "Ashfall" drew over 4 million viewers in about a week after its release on Dec. 19.
According to the Korean Film Council, the volcano disaster film attracted 4.18 million moviegoers as of Wednesday. The star-studded film featuring Ha Jung-woo and Suzy depicts a group of people who try to stop a volcanic eruption of Mt. Baekdu in North Korea.
Meanwhile, Tom Hooper's cinematic adaption of "Cats", based on the Broadway show of the same name -- one of the longest-running shows ever -- attracted over 180,000 moviegoers on Christmas Eve.
It broke the previous records set by "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again" in 2018 and "La La Land" in 2016, which drew over 145,000 and 62,000 moviegoers respectively on the first day of release.
