3 Aug – The Jung Woo-sung and Yoo Yeon-seok-starring "Steel Rain: Summit" has reached a remarkable milestone within just one week of release in its home country, South Korea.
It was posted on Lotte Entertainment's Facebook that the action thriller, which opened in Korean cinemas on 29 July, has surpassed the 1 million admission mark.
Several photos showing the stars, along with director Yang Woo-seok, holding up handwritten messages to thank movie-goers were shared in the same post.
Excited of their achievement, Jung also posted photos of him on social media with co-star Yoo with a sign that says, "Wow, 1 million, thank you!"
"Steel Rain: Summit" is a follow-up to 2017's "Steel Rain", which starred Jung Woo-sung and Kwak Do-won. It was based on director Yang's 2011 webtoon of the same name.
While both Jung and Kwak returned for the sequel, neither reprised their previous respective roles. In this second movie, Jung plays President Han Kyeong-jae and Kwak plays Supreme Guard Command Chief.
The second instalment follows President Han who gathers with the North Korean President (Yoo) and the US President (Angus Macfadyen) for a summit. Things do not go as expected when the presidents are taken and held captive in a nuclear-powered submarine. President Han must now solve the crisis before war erupts.
"Steel Rain: Summit" is set to open in several more territories soon, including Singapore next week and Malaysia on this 20 August.
