The zombie thriller "#ALIVE" starring Yoo Ah-in and Park Shin-hye has drawn over 1 million viewers in just five days since its release as the film industry is still reeling from the coronavirus crisis.

The film crossed the 1 million mark on Sunday afternoon, according to the Korean Film Council, becoming the first to do so since the government issued a red alert for the virus on Feb. 23. 

The film is about a group of survivors holed up in an apartment without any means of communication while a mysterious outbreak spreads through their city, turning people into zombies.

The film is expected to offer a ray of hope for the industry, one of the sectors hit hardest by the coronavirus epidemic.


"#ALIVE" is directed by Cho Il-hyeong, and features Yoo Ah-in, Park Shin-hye, Jeon Bae-soo, Lee Hyun-wook-I, Oh Hye-won, Kim Dan-bi. Release date in Korea: 2020/06/24.
