The musical fantasy film "Aladdin" is working its magic at the box office.
Disney's live-action remake of its 1992 animated film surpassed the 4-million-viewer mark on Tuesday, 19 days after arriving in theaters here on May 23, according to the Korean Film Council.
As with the biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" about legendary British rock band Queen, "Aladdin" has been boosted by strong word of mouth, only at an even faster pace -- it took 25 days for "Bohemian Rhapsody" to reach the same mark.
The musical film is also drawing a large number of repeat viewers.
Some movie theaters have recently launched "sing-along" screenings, like "Bohemian Rhapsody," at which audiences are encouraged to sing along to the songs in the film as if attending a concert.
