2009/08/04 | 313 views | Permalink | Source

The South Korean disaster movie "Haeundae" has lured over five-point-two million viewers since its opening on July 22nd.

Film distributor CJ Entertainment said that ticket sales for the big-budget action movie recorded 390-thousand on Monday alone.

Among the films released since January, it is the first Korean movie to exceed the five-million mark.

Also, the film is the second fastest to reach the mark following the domestic monster film "The Host", which drew five million viewers bythe ninth day of its release.

As "Haeundae" continues to top the local box office in the third week after its release, it may become the first domestic movie to hit the ten million viewer mark in three years.
