Ma Dong Seok And Son Suk Ku’s “The Outlaws 2” (“The Roundup”) Surpasses 9 Million Moviegoers Faster Than “Parasite”
Even by pre-pandemic standards, “The Outlaws 2” (also known as “The Roundup”) is on track to become a legendary box office smash!
According to the Korean Film Council, as of 9 a.m. KST on June 6, “The Outlaws 2” had reached an impressive total of 9,030,243 moviegoers.
Not only is “The Outlaws 2” the first film to reach the milestone since 2019, but it also managed to hit the 9 million mark even faster than the award-winning movie “Parasite”—the last film to surpass 9 million moviegoers—which was released before the COVID-19 pandemic.
The cast of “The Outlaws 2” remarked, “We never imagined that we would receive such an amazing response and so much warm support after the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you so much to all the moviegoers who went to see ‘The Outlaws 2,’ and if you haven’t seen it yet, we hope that you’ll watch it and get rid of your stress and the summer heat.”
The sequel to Ma Dong Seok’s popular 2017 action film “The Outlaws,” “The Outlaws 2” follows the exciting adventures of legendary detective Ma Seok Do and his police station’s violent crimes squad as they chase down a powerful new villain (played by Son Suk Ku). “The Outlaws 2” has already surpassed the final total of 6,880,546 moviegoers recorded by the original “The Outlaws” film.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of “The Outlaws 2” on their incredible achievement!
