It’s a triple treat for police comedy film “Midnight Runners”!
According to statistics released by the Korean Film Council, “Midnight Runners” exceeded 5 million admissions as of August 30th. What’s more, the movie regained the number 2 slot, and for the very first time, outpaces Korea’s biggest hit of the year, “A Taxi Driver” which went down to the third spot. The difference between the day’s admissions of the two Korean movies is almost 8,000.
Meanwhile, Hollywood’s “A Hitman’s Bodyguard” which stars Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson and Salma Hayek took the first spot on its premiere day in South Korea.
It is worth noting that the highly entertaining movie that showcases the undeniable chemistry between the leads, Kang Ha Neul and Park Seo Joon has been consistently in the top 3 since its release on August 9th. With this new development, will “Midnight Runners” have a chance to get the top spot in the coming days?
“Midnight Runners” which was helmed and written by director Jason Kim, revolves around two police cadets who investigate a complicated abduction that they witness one night. The movie is currently showing in Viet Nam, Indonesia, United States and Canada, and will be released in Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand on August 31st.
