"Deliver Us from Evil" drew over 4 million viewers in less than a month since its release early this month. The feat is considered remarkable amid the coronavirus epidemic.
According to the Korean Film Council, the action flick has become the first film to attract more than 4 million moviegoers so far this year since "The Man Standing Next," which was released in January.
The film, packed with hardboiled action and relentless chase scenes, has drawn much attention as it reunites actors Hwang Jung-min and Lee Jung-jae for the first time since their 2013 hit "New World." Hwang plays a hit man, and Lee chases him all the way to Thailand to avenge his brother's death.
But it remains to be seen whether the film will continue to attract viewers due to a recent resurgence of coronavirus.
