“The Outlaws 2” (“The Roundup”) Becomes 1st Film To Surpass 5 Million Moviegoers Since 2019
According to the Korean Film Council, “The Outlaws 2” officially surpassed 5 million moviegoers on May 27 at 5:30 p.m. KST—less than 10 days after its release on May 18.
Not only did “The Outlaws 2” manage to reach the milestone at an impressive speed, but it is now the first film to surpass 5 million moviegoers since the hit 2019 film “Ashfall,” which was released before the COVID-19 pandemic.
The highly-anticipated sequel to Ma Dong Seok and Yoon Kye Sang’s hit 2017 action film “The Outlaws,” “The Outlaws 2” follows the exciting adventures of legendary detective Ma Seok Do and his police station’s violent crimes squad as they fight to eradicate crime.
Last week, “The Outlaws 2” also became the fastest film to surpass 3 million moviegoers since the award-winning film “Parasite,” in addition to previously setting a new record for the biggest box office opening in South Korea since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Congratulations to the movie’s cast and crew!
