    It already exceeded Punch (2011)’s 5,311,307 admissions, which was the most successful movie among local films released in October. 

    LUCK-KEY continues to break records of the all-time local comedies. The film attracted 1 million viewers in three days, 2 million in four days, 3 million in nine days and 5 million in 16 days of its opening.
