“Extreme Job” Breaks Record For Highest Ticket Sales Of Any Korean Comedy Film In History
The new film “Extreme Job” has just made history at the Korean box office!
According to the Korean Film Council, “Extreme Job” reached a total of 12,835,396 moviegoers on February 10, setting a new record for the highest ticket sales achieved by any Korean comedy film. The previous record was held by the 2013 film “Miracle in Cell No. 7,” which drew a total of 12,811,206 moviegoers during its run.
Not only did “Extreme Job” become the highest-grossing Korean comedy film of all time in just 19 days, but it has also already managed to land a spot in the top eight highest-grossing Korean box office hits—of any genre—in history.
“Extreme Job” stars Ryu Seung Ryong, Honey Lee, Jin Sun Kyu, Lee Dong Hwi, and Gong Myung as a five-member squad of detectives who go undercover to bust an organized drug ring. However, things go awry when the fried chicken restaurant that they set up as a front for their investigations becomes unexpectedly popular.
Congratulations to the film’s cast and crew on their historic achievement!
