    After only eight days in theaters GUK Dong-seok’s debut film, the thriller Accomplices, made its way over the one million admissions mark.

Accomplices stars SON Ye-jin (A Moment to Remember, 2004) as a daughter beginning to suspect her doting father of murder.

The film was directed by LEE Joon-ik, who was also behind the 2005 smash hit The King and the Clown.
