“Deliver Us From Evil” Is The 1st Korean Film Since February To Surpass 4 Million Moviegoers
“Deliver Us From Evil” is proving to be a big summer hit!
“Deliver Us From Evil” is a hard-boiled action film about an assassin who gets swept up in a major incident on his final mission and finds himself being chased down by a man whose sibling he killed. It stars Hwang Jung Min, Lee Jung Jae, Park Jung Min, and more.
According to the Korean Film Commission’s records, “Deliver Us From Evil” surpassed 4 million moviegoers on August 22 at 1:30 p.m. KST. This is the first time in 2020 since the film “The Man Standing Next” (which was released in January and reached the milestone in February) that a film has surpassed 4 million moviegoers at the box office.
The cast thanked moviegoers for helping their film achieve the milestone. Hwang Jung Min, who is filming a new movie in Jordan, said, “I really wanted to say that I am sincerely grateful.” Lee Jung Jae said, “4 million people came to see our movie. Thank you very much.” Park Jung Min said, “It is thanks to the moviegoers that our film could receive so much love and that theaters can continue to show films. It is an honor and I am deeply grateful. I hope that everyone stays healthy and that Korean films continue to receive a lot of love.”
Despite movie theaters being impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, “Deliver Us From Evil” reached 1 million moviegoers in just four days, became the fastest Korean film this summer to reach 2 million moviegoers, and surpassed the 3 million milestone faster than previous hit action films “The Outlaws” and “Believer.”
