"A Werewolf Boy" draws 3 million viewers

Local romance movie "A Werewolf Boy" drew more than 3 million moviegoers last week, a rare feat for its genre, the Korean Film Council said Sunday.

The film about a werewolf boy and his love interest who has a lung disease, starring Song Joong-ki and Park Bo-young, was watched by 537,948 audience members on Saturday alone, bringing the total to 3,067,651, according to the council.

A daily number of over 500,000 is remarkably high for a movie of any genre shown in November, a slow season for moviegoing.
The 3 million feat was achieved in 11 days after its release on Oct. 31.

It was quicker than "Architecture 101", a film about a first love at college, which hit the 3 million level in 27 days before drawing 4.1 million viewers. The figure is a record for a Korean romance film.

Distributor CJ Entertainment said it expects the movie to draw a record number of viewers for a locally-made romance film. (Yonhap)
