This bunch of funny thieves were not only stealing a huge diamond in Macau but also successfully steals Korean box office from superhero The Dark Knight Rises who’s still the king of box office in its home country, United States.
Opened on July 25, during three days weekend (27-29 July), The Thieves collected 2,004,232 admissions. And added with the previous days (25 & 26 July), The Thieves brought total of 2,866,870 admission in its first 5 days.
This is a huge number , and was the second biggest opening ever in Korean movie history after 2006 hit movie The Host.
Meanwhile The Dark Night Rises collected 891,058 admissions during the weekend to the total of 4,256,320 admission since its debut on July 19.
So, the question is , will the star studded movie The Thieves break 10 million admissions ?
It’s highly possible and it will be a funny moment because Kim Soo Hyun -one of its stars- promised to give a piggyback and watching movie together with the 10,000,000th audience.
Even if the movie fails to reach that amazing number, at least, Jun Ji Hyun will be satisfied as she was hungry for a box office movie.
