'The Battleship Island' Breaks 5 Million Viewer Mark

2017/08/03 | Permalink | Source

"The Battleship Island" by Ryoo Seung-wan has attracted over 5 million viewers in the eight days since its release last week.

This is the fastest pace among all movies released this year in Korea, very much helped by the whopping 970,872 viewers on the first day alone.

Ryoo has proved his knack for commercial success once again after it took only 10 days for his previous film "Veteran" to break the 5 million mark in 2015.

"The Battleship Island" depicts the plight of Korean slave laborers on Hashima Island in World War II.
