The movie Peninsula, directed by Yeon Sang Ho, is dominating the box office. It surpassed 1 million viewers in just four days after its release.
According to the Korean Film Council, Peninsula had attracted a total of 1,000,790 viewers as of 8:10 a.m. on July 18 KST. Its pace is the same as the pace of the movie Ode to My Father, which holds fourth place in the Korean box office. At this rate, the movie will be able to surpass 2 million viewers nest week.
The overseas responses are also hot. Peninsula topped the box office in Taiwan, Singapore, and Malaysia. It is also scheduled to be released in Vietnam on July 24 and has already topped the overall booking rate.
Peninsula features a larger scale and more powerful actions. The stage has expanded from a limited space of train to a ruined city. Intense car chasing scenes and gun battle scenes are certainly eye-catching, and the performances of female characters, including Lee Jung Hyun and Lee Re, are also outstanding.
Set four years after Train to Busan, Peninsula is an action blockbuster that depicts the last battle of those left in the ruined land.
