The comedy disaster film “Sinkhole,” starring Lee Kwang Soo, Cha Seung Won, and Kim Sung Kyun, has achieved yet another success at the box office.
Due to its impressive storyline and new cast members, the recently released picture is generating a lot of excitement online.
“Sinkhole,” which debuted on the big screen on August 11 and has led the box office ever since, has reigned supreme.
According to the Korean Film Council, it drew about 80,000 moviegoers on the 17th, for a total of 1,221,225 viewers.
To top it off, the film directed by Kim Ji Hoon remained at the top of the box office for seven days in a row.
In addition, the freshly released film became the fastest K-film to reach one million viewers. On the morning of August 16, barely six days after its premiere, the disaster comedy film “Sinkhole” had attracted 1,000,792 viewers.
Surprisingly, it was able to overcome JunIn Sung’s picture “Escape from Mogadishu,” which slipped to second place at the box office.
Despite their continuous success, the cast, director, and writer of “Sinkhole” expressed their gratitude to the audience for their unwavering support.
Lee Kwang Soo, PD Kim Ji Hoon, and the rest of the cast and crew posed with a special message thanking the fans for the film’s success when it surpassed the one million milestones.
“One million people have seen #Sinkhole. The “Sinkhole” team took a handwriting proof shot. In 2021, the fastest Korean film gained a million spectators! Thank you for coming to the cinema, everyone “, the distribution business Showbox released the series of photographs on their official website.
The new disaster film tells the story of Park Dong-Won, played by Kim Sung Kyun, who was trapped with his pals in a 500-meter sinkhole.
Dong-Won ultimately bought his dream house in Chungwoon Villa after 11 years of saving in the drama.
Unfortunately, during his housewarming party, an accident occurred when a section of his house crashed hundreds of meters into the earth.
His colleagues Kim Seung Hyun and Eun Joo, played by former “Running Man” presenter Lee Kwang Soo and “Kingdom” actress Kim Hye Joon, are trapped in the massive sinkhole.
Jung Man Soo, a doting single dad who works various part-time jobs to make ends meet, joins them at Chungwoon Villa, played by Cha Seung Won.

The comedian-actor discussed his involvement in “Sinkhole” in an interview.
Despite the film’s delay owing to the global epidemic, Lee Kwang Soo expressed gratitude during the interview.
