′The New World′ Hits 4 Million
The New World has managed to shoot through the 4 million mark despite its adult-only rating.
According to the Korean Film Council′s Compiled Ticket Computer Network on March 18, The New World recorded 4,001,694 in ticket sales. The film is the first film for ages 19-and-over to achieve such a feat, and the record is more meaningful as it was managed in March, which is off-season for the box office.
Since its premiere the film has been praised for its persuasive story and its cast of Hwang Jung Min, Choi Min Sik and Lee Jung Jae.
Audiences are now looking forward to whether the film will be able to surpass the record set by Namelss Gangster, the top 19+ rated film of 2012.
The producers of The New World will be inviting fans to a talk session with the director Park Hoon Jung on March 26 to keep the promise they made for the 4 million mark.
