  • THE BERLIN FILE is No. 1 in First Week of Release

    Director RYOO Seung-wan has hit number one at the box office with his latest film. The Berlin File brought in 1.53 million admissions in its first weekend, marking a new chapter for the Korean spy action genre. The film surpassed the two million mark in the shortest time among films that were released in January and February this year.

    The rate is similar to that of BONG Joon-ho's The Host and CHOI Dong-hoon's The Thieves, which are the all-time number one and two most popular Korean films. Officials from CJ Entertainment say The Berlin File is a hit with audiences among all Korean films released this year and its popularity will likely increase thanks to the Lunar New Year's Holiday period coming up.
