The movie "Dogani" ("Silenced") is showing no signs of slowing down in terms of it's box office success. Starring Gong Yoo and Jung Yu-mi and directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk, "Dogani" is approaching the 4 million movie-goer mark, having placed number one in ticket sales for the fourth straight week.
According to box office statistics, this past week (October 8-9), 335,495 people went to go see "Silenced", adding up to a combined total of 3,743,065 people.
"Dogani" is based on a true story where sexual assault cases were ongoing at a school for the disabled in Korea. The movie has shed light on an issue that was sort of swept under the rug over the past few years. So much light that the law for sexual assault cases on minors or the disabled have been brought back up for revision.
2nd place was "The Client", starring Ha Jung-woo, Park Hee-soon, and Jang Hyuk. The movie brought in 297,708 viewers nation-wide for a combined total of 1,456,121 people.
