The crime flick "Veteran" has attracted some 2.8 million viewers in just five days since its release last Wednesday, putting it on track to become another summer box office hit.
That is even faster than sales for director Ryoo Seung-wan's last film "The Berlin File" in 2013, which drew 2.25 million in the first week.
Its performance also exceeded that of some mega-hit films, which drew over 10 million viewers -- "Ode to My Father" (2014) had 1.55 million viewers, "The Attorney" (2014) 1.75 million and "Haeundae" (2009) 1.99 million in their first weeks.
"Veteran" performed particularly well in the all-important first weekend after release, attracting 1.44 million people, well ahead of "The Assassination", which was released on July 23 and is likely to become the first film that attracts more than 10 million viewers this year.
