Wowsers does this movie have legs, or movie-going audience eyeballs judging from the box office. For the first time in two years a K-movie has entered the top 10 highest grossing Korean movies of all time list, at current standing the fantasy movie Along With the Gods has just over 13 million tickets sold placing it 4th on the list. That’s amazing, and it’s just a few hundred thousands away from overtaking Veteran in 3rd place, and may even gross more than Ode to My Father with 14.2 million tickets. The number 1 grossing K-movie remains far and away The Admiral: Roaring Currents at over 17 million so it’s unlikely Gods can hit that number, but this is an incredible feat and great news for the cast and crew as part 2 of the movie is coming this summer. Congrats to the cast of Ha Jung Woo, Cha Tae Hyun, Lee Jung Jae, Joo Ji Hoon, and Kim Hyang Gi.
Another 2017 movie may enter the top 10 as A Taxi Driver currently sits at 11th spot with 12.2 million tickets sold, and 10th place is King and the Clown from 2005 which had 12.3 million tickets sold and back then 12 years ago was an insane unbelievable runaway hit of epic proportions which has kept that sageuk move in the top 10 list for 12 years now. The only other relatively older movie in the top 10 list is monster movie The Host in 5th place in 2006 with just over 13 million viewers.
