Blockbuster 'The Chaser' Attracts Over 4 Million Moviegoers

The Korean blockbuster film "The Chaser" (directed by Na Hong-jin, Bidangil Production Company) has attracted more than four million moviegoers since its release on February 14.

'Chaser' has become the second Korean film to attract more than four million moviegoers this year after 'Forever the Moment'. The former exceeded the figure only 34 days after its release while the latter took 39 days to exceed the four million mark. The figure is more significant for "The Chaser" as it is rated R.

Film distributor Show Box said despite the release of Hollywood blockbusters like 'Jumper' and '10,000 B.C'., box office ticket sales for "The Chaser" have not gone down. It added that the film is expected to break the box office record of 'Forever the Moment'.

Starring Kim Yun-seok and Ha Jung-woo, "The Chaser" is an action thriller with a strong social message. The story revolves about a former detective turned pimp who chases a serial killer over a span of 24 hours.
