    has made its foray into the U.S. market, home to action movies, by premiering in 21 cities across North America on February 15th. The Berlin File surpassed five million viewer milestone in the quickest interval of 2013. The Korean action blockbuster will continue its box office success abroad by meeting audience in 21 cities across North America such as LA, Las Vegas, Chicago, New York of the U.S. and Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal of Canada. Previews of The Berlin File were successfully held at CGV LA and AMC Empire in Manhattan, New York on February 6th.
    U.S. media and critics gave the film rave reviews such as “The Berlin File is more thrilling and exciting than Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “We finally found a very interesting movie,” “I really enjoyed the movie. The Berlin File is a genuine action thriller with extraordinary action sequences” and “The Berlin File is a modern version of European spy films in the 1960s. The Berlin File shows the best action among RYOO Seung-wan's films. I strongly recommend this film.”
    “The first movie that comes to mind right now is The Berlin File by RYOO Seung-wan,” said director PARK Chan-wook in a KBS TV news program on February 13th after being asked about what Korean movie would be successful in the U.S. “This is because foreigners are interested in North Korea as well as South Korea. Action movies are universal too.”
