Cast Of New Movie “Start-Up” Sends Hearts To Viewers For Surpassing 1 Million Moviegoers
“Start-Up” has hit 1 million moviegoers five days after its release!
The film surpassed 1 million moviegoers on December 22 at 1:15 p.m. KST. It has garnered support from male and female audiences of all ages through its comical yet touching story, and it hit the 1 million milestone faster than Disney’s “Aladdin” (which surpassed 1 million moviegoers on the sixth day of its release) and “Keys to the Heart” (which reached 1 million on the sixth day of its release). “Start-Up” reached the 1 million mark at the same pace as the hit film “Confidential Assignment.”
To thank the viewers, the cast posed for photos in pink sweaters while holding up balloons that read, “100” (to represent 1 million in the way the number is read in Korean). They also formed hearts with their hands, fingers, and arms (top photo).
“Start-Up” is about the foolish rebel Taek Il (Park Jung Min), who meets the mysterious chef of a Chinese restaurant Geo Seok (Ma Dong Seok) and the overzealous rebel Sang Pil (Jung Hae In) as they attempt to face the real world. The film was released in Korean theaters on December 18.
