Ha Ji Won Embraces Success in Her 40s as K-movie Pawn Breaks 1 Million Admissions

Movie going in 2020 with COVID-19 has been wildly up and down to say the least. In South Korea the theaters stayed open with social distancing of every other seat remaining empty which cut into admissions and tickets sold. Basically every K-movie released this year with have an asterisk next to it but that’s ok, we can at least look at the hits and misses within the same context. High profile thrillers did well including Peninsula, The Man Standing Next, and Delivery Us From Evil, while #Alive was a nice indie hit. This month the really small scale and small budget heartwarming movie Pawn (Collateral) crested the 1 million admissions mark (nearly 1.4M admissions as of today) so a big accomplishment for a movie with basically 4 leads in Ha Ji Won, Sung Dong Il, Kim Hee Won, and child actress Park So Yi. It’s been a few years since Ha Ji Won picked a successful K-drama so it’s nice to see her movie career do well this year.
