'The Attorney' Expected to Break More Box Office Records

2014/01/02 | 541 views | Permalink | Source

"The Attorney" is likely to become this year's first movie to draw 10 million moviegoers. According to the Korean Film Council, a total of 5.69 million people had watched it as of Tuesday. The number had risen to 6 million on Wednesday morning, only 15 days after the flick was released, according to distributer NEW.

If its popularity continues at a similar pace, it could become the fastest film to achieve the milestone in the history of Korean cinema. It needed five fewer days to attract 5 million cinemagoers than last year's "Miracle in Cell No.7". "The Attorney" gained more momentum in its second week, thus raising expectations even higher.

The film concerns the story of a man who comes from a humble background but rises to become a successful tax lawyer in Busan in the early 1980s. He then gives up the wealth and reputation to become a human rights lawyer.
