The Roundup topped the box office for 3 consecutive weeks, accelerating the birth of a ‘10 million-viewer movie.’ According to the Korean Box Office Information System (KOBIS) of the Korean Film Council (KOFIC) on June 6 (Monday), The Roundup recorded 1,238,540 viewers from June 3 to 5. As a result, the total number of audiences of the film exceeded 9 million. This record surpassed that of Jurassic World: Dominion, which was released on June 1st (Wed) and drew 760,000 viewers on the day of its release, setting the highest opening record in 2022. In addition, the total number of audiences of The Roundup easily exceeded Spider-Man: No Way Home with 7.55 million viewers, the biggest hit since the Pandemic.


The Roundup has broken the box office record every single day since its release, surpassing 9 million viewers within 20 days of its release. This is 5 days earlier than PARASITE, the last ‘10 million-viewer movie’ in 2019, which surpassed 9 million viewers in 25 days of its release.
