The record for the most-watched Korean movie is about to be broken, for the first time in two years.
Korean film distributor, Cinema Service says, the movie, "the King and the Clown,” is expected this weekend to exceed the previous record of 11.7 million tickets sold, by "Taegukki"
This means, roughly a quarter of the Korean population, could have seen the film.
If realized "the King and the Clown,” will become Korea's most-viewed film, in less than 70 days.
The movie has been drawing huge crowds since its opening late last year, and touches on the once-taboo topic of homosexuality.
The success of "The King and the Clown" came as a complete surprise to the industry, being a low budget movie set in the 1500s.
