'Ode to My Father' 2nd Biggest Box-Office Hit of All Time

2015/02/09 | Permalink | Source

"Ode to My Father" had drawn over 13 million viewers as of last week, according to the Korean Film Council.

It is now the second biggest box-office hit in the history of Korean cinema after "The Admiral: Roaring Currents", which attracted 17.61 million viewers last year.

The melodrama, which drew 13.02 million moviegoers in the two months since its release in late December, also moved past a previous record-holder, Bong Joon-ho's "The Host" (13.01 million). If foreign films are counted, it is now the third-most-successful film ever released in Korea, after James Cameron's "Avatar".

"It is expected to beat the record set by 'Avatar' soon, as it is still attracting many moviegoers", the film's production company said Sunday.

The film, which depicts a man's sacrifices for his family while caught in the vortex of the Korean War, has been invited to this year's Berlin International Film Festival, which wraps up its weeklong schedule of events this weekend.
