To celebrate surpassing 2 million moviegoers, Jo In Sung, Nam Joo Hyuk, Uhm Tae Goo, Park Byung Eun, and director Kim Kwang Sik took a photo together while holding flags that read, “Thank you for 2 million moviegoers.”

 

Representing the cast, Jo In Sung commented, “My heart was so full when I saw comments saying that the audience gave a round of applause after the movie. The driving force behind the success of ‘The Great Battle’ is the audience. We hope for your continual love and interest.”

 

Nam Joo Hyuk also expressed thanks on his Instagram for showing “The Great Battle” love despite it being the Chuseok holiday.

Set in 645, the movie starring Zo In-sung, Nam Joo-hyuk and Park Sung-woong re-enacts the legendary 88-day battle that Gen. Yang Man-chun (played by Zo In-sung) and his 5,000 Koguryo troops desperately fought against the superior Chinese Tang invaders. Koguryo is one of the three Korean ancient kingdoms, which lasted from the first to seventh centuries and stretched from the central part of Korea well into modern-day northeastern China at its peak.

The three highly-anticipated films released in time for the holiday last week held on to the top three spots at the weekend box office. The only newcomer that made it into the top ten last weekend was comedy “The Soul-Mate,” which arrived at fourth.

The mega-budget period epic “The Great Battle” remained invincible in its second weekend while crime flick “The Negotiation” pushed its way up to the second spot, pushing historical drama “Fengshui” down to third.

“The Great Battle” tells the story of courageous General Yang Man-chun (Zo In-sung) from Goguryeo (37 B.C.-A.D. 668) and sold 814,000 tickets from Friday to Sunday at 1,380 screens, according to data provided by the Korean Film Council on Monday. Since its release on Sept. 19, the film, which also stars Nam Joo-hyuk, Bae Seong-woo and Um Tae-goo, has sold a total of 4.5 million tickets.

Directed by Kim Kwang-sik of “My Dear Desperado” (2010), “The Great Battle” shows the epic fight between Yang and his troops trying to defend the small Ansi Fortress against half a million men from the Tang Dynasty attempting to invade.
