“Confidential Assignment 2” Surpasses 2 Million Moviegoers In 5 Days, Achieving Twice The Speed Of Its Prequel
Less than two days after hitting the 1 million mark at the box office, “Confidential Assignment 2: International” has already doubled its total number of moviegoers!
On the morning of September 11 at 8:40 a.m. KST, the new sequel to “Confidential Assignment” officially surpassed 2 million moviegoers at the Korean box office—less than five days after its release on September 7.
Considering that the original “Confidential Assignment” film took five days to hit 1 million moviegoers and 10 days to surpass 2 million, “Confidential Assignment 2” impressively reached the milestone at twice the speed of its prequel.
Additionally, “Confidential Assignment 2” managed to surpass 2 million moviegoers three days faster than “Top Gun: Maverick,” which was one of South Korea’s biggest box office hits this summer.
“Confidential Assignment 2” stars Hyun Bin as a North Korean detective named Rim Chul Ryung and Yoo Hae Jin as a South Korean detective named Kang Jin Tae, who previously teamed up to catch a criminal in the original “Confidential Assignment” film. In the new sequel, the duo gets back together to hunt down the leader of a North Korean criminal organization that has wreaked havoc all over the world (played by Jin Sun Kyu), and they are joined by Kang Jin Tae’s sister-in-law (Girls’ Generation’s YoonA) and an FBI agent from the United States (Daniel Henney).
Congratulations to the cast and crew of “Confidential Assignment 2”!
