SEOUL, Aug. 13 (Yonhap) -- "The Terror, LIVE," a Korean crime film starring actor Ha Jung-woo, has drawn an audience of over 4 million in 13 days of opening, a market tracker said Tuesday.
The flick had an accumulated audience of 4,009,000 as of Monday night, according to the Korean Film Council (KOFIC).
The 6-billion-won (US$5.37 million) film has already passed the break-even point when it surpassed 1.8 million tickets sold in six days after its release.
"It is sure to exceed the 5 million mark in the third week of opening that starts with the Korean Liberation Day holiday," the movie's local distributor, Lotte Entertainment, said in a release.
The feature debut film by director Kim Byung-woo is about a radio show host seeking to restore his former glory as a popular TV anchor through an exclusive live broadcast of a terror plot by a man who threatens to blow up a Seoul bridge.
