"The Roundup: No Way Out," starring Ma Dong-seok, has been dominating the Korean box office for more than a week since its release on May 31.
According to the Korean Film Council, the crime flick -- the third installment in a series that began with the 2017 smash hit film "The Outlaws" -- attracted some 645 million viewers in cumulative cinema attendance as of Wednesday.
The film's distributor said the film passed its break-even point just three days after its release, as it drew over 1 million moviegoers a day.
It is soon expected to hit the 10-million-viewer mark, following the success of the previous installment, "The Roundup," last year.
The latest film deals with the story of a detective who fights a war on drugs.
