Film "Dirty Carnival" Draws 2 Million Viewers

2006/07/20 Source

The film "A Dirty Carnival", starring Jo In-sung, has drawn two million viewers just a month after its opening.

The movie's promotion company said July 19 that "A Dirty Carnival", which opened June 15 just in time for the World Cup fervor, has made a successful run in the domestic box-office on par with Hollywood blockbusters.

The movie's success can be attributed to the excellent directing skills of its director, Yoo Ha, as well as the superior acting of its cast, which includes Jo, Jin Goo, Namgoong Min, Chun Ho-jin and Lee Bo-young. Despite a somewhat heavy plot for a summer movie, "A Dirty Carnival" captivated viewers' hearts with its heartfelt story about real life. Adding to the movie's popularity was an active promotion campaign that lasted for three weeks after the film's opening. Jo in particular received rave reviews for his true-to-life portrayal of a gangster.

With few successful domestic movies opening in the first half of the year, with the exception of "The King and the Clown", the success of "A Dirty Carnival" is even more noteworthy. As it continues to draw more viewers, attention is now focused on whether the movie will set another record.
