“Smugglers” has reached an exciting new milestone at the Korean box office!

According to the Korean Film Council, as of 7 a.m. KST on August 30, the star-studded action film had officially surpassed 5 million moviegoers. The film was originally released on July 26, meaning that it took less than 36 days to hit the 5 million mark.

“Smugglers” is now the first Korean film released this summer to surpass 5 million moviegoers—and only the second released in 2023, following “The Roundup: No Way Out” (“The Outlaws 3”).

An action crime film set in the 1970s, “Smugglers” tells the story of deep sea divers in a peaceful village who unexpectedly get tangled up in a high-stakes smuggling scheme. Helmed by “Veteran” and “Escape from Mogadishu” director Ryu Seung Wan, the movie stars Kim Hye Soo, Yum Jung Ah, Jo In Sung, Park Jung Min, Go Min Si, Kim Jong Soo, and more.

Congratulations to the cast and crew of “Smugglers”!
