Director Lee Byoung-heon's latest film is making a splash at the box office.
According to the Korean Film Council, the comedy "Extreme Job" drew more than 4.45 million viewers in just about a week after its release on Jan. 23.
In terms of cinema attendance, it is faster than previous hit films like "Veteran" (2015), "Miracle in Cell No. 7" (2013) and "The Attorney" (2013).
If this pace continues, the comedy could reach the 10-million milestone in ticket sales, especially with the Lunar New Year break just around the corner.
The film starring Ryu Seung-ryong and Lee Honey is about a team of narcotics detectives who go undercover to take down an organized crime gang.
