Director Seung-wan Ryoo's new film "Mogadishu" has surpassed 2 million viewers on its 17th day.
According to distributor Lotte Entertainment on the 13th, "Mogadishu" recorded a cumulative audience of 2 million and 27 at noon. It is the first Korean film released this year.
Earlier, "Mogadishu" surpassed 1 million viewers on the seventh day of its release on the 3rd, making it one of the most successful Korean films released this year.
The movie, inspired by the escape story of diplomatic officials from South and North Korea during the 1991 civil war in Somalia, was released amid the fourth pandemic of Covid-19 and maintained social distancing in the Seoul metropolitan area.
Director Ridley Scott, who directed the film "Black Hawk Down" (2002) about the civil war in Somalia, told the production company that the story of "Mogadishu" is worth being known for. "It was an excellent choice to release the film at a time when it was chaotic around the world."
In commemoration of the 2 million-viewer mark, "Mogadishu" organized an event to give canned perilla leaves, which was used as an important prop in the scene where people from the two Koreas ate together for the first time in the movie.
The event will be held at CGV Yongsan I-Park Mall, Lotte Cinema World Tower, and Megabox COEX on the 15th.
