The buddy film "Confidential Assignment" has surpassed the 7-million viewer mark, the Korean Film Council said on Sunday.
It became this year's first movie to achieve the feat, after hitting theaters on Jan. 19.
Starring Hyun Bin and Yu Hae-jin, the action film tells the tale of a North Korean agent and a South Korean detective who cooperate to take down a North Korean criminal hiding in the South.
Meanwhile, "The King," which was released in the same week as "Confidential Assignment" to much fanfare as it brought together top actors Jung Woo-sung and Zo In-sung, has drawn some 5.22 million viewers.
