Korean film about N.K. spies tops 3 million in attendance

A South Korean comedy film about three young North Korean spies has exceeded the 3 million mark in the number of viewers at local theaters, the film's local distributor said Sunday.

"Secretly Greatly," which opened at 1,341 theaters across the country on Wednesday, passed the milestone in just five days, according to Mediaplex.

But the figure remains unofficial as the Korean Film Council that tracks official box-office data in the country has yet to release the latest information.

Based on a popular webtoon with the same title published in 2010, the movie is about three young and handsome North Korean spies dispatched to South Korea, disguising themselves as a fool, a rock star wannabe and a high school student.

Starring rising heartthrob Kim Soo-hyun, the movie topped the local box-office as of Saturday, accounting for 69 percent of tickets sold at theaters.

It also passed the break-even point, which stood at 2.2 million in attendance, just four days after opening, according to Mediaplex.
