      The film "Bounty Hunters" starring Lee Min-ho posted W20.5 billion in ticket sales in just four days since the release in China on Friday (US$1=W1,148).

      The film is Lee's first Korean-Chinese co-production and topped the Chinese box office on the day of its release with a market share of 26.65 percent.

      "Bounty Hunters" beat Hollywood blockbuster sequels "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows," "Independence Day: Resurgence," as well as Taiwan's "Now You See Me: The Second Act."

      Its success is especially welcome as previous Korean-Chinese co-productions have not fared well.
