Kim Go Eun, Lee Hyun Woo, Jung Sung Hwa, And More Celebrate “Hero” Surpassing 2 Million Moviegoers
“Hero” has just reached an exciting milestone at the Korean box office!
On January 7, the Korean Film Council officially announced that as of 8 a.m. KST that morning, “Hero” had racked up a total of 2,022,353 moviegoers—meaning that the musical movie took just 18 days to surpass 2 million moviegoers.
Notably, “Hero” managed to hit the 2 million mark in Korea faster than other popular musical films such as “La La Land” and “Mamma Mia! 2,” which took 20 and 21 days respectively to reach the milestone.
In celebration of the film’s achievement, “Hero” stars Kim Go Eun, Lee Hyun Woo, Jung Sung Hwa, Jo Jae Yoon, Park Jin Joo, and Bae Jung Nam all gathered with director Yoon Je Kyun to pose for a cute group photo.
Based on the popular stage musical of the same name, “Hero” tells a fictionalized version of the true story of Ahn Joong Geun, a real-life independence activist who is a major figure in Korean history.
Congratulations to the cast and crew!
