The 75th Cannes International Film Festival’s award-winning film “Broker” topped the pre-release list, signaling a box office success.
According to the Korean Film Council’s integrated computer network as of 10 a.m. on Jun 7th, “Broker” ranked first with a 39.9% reservation rate.
Following “Broker,” the movie “The Roundup” (20.2%), starring actors Ma Dong-seok and Son Seok-gu, is ranked second in terms of reservation rate, and “Jurassic World: Dominion” (13.1%) is ranked third.
“Broker” depicts an unexpected and special journey of those who have become involved around a thing called the “Baby Box.”
Directed by Hirokazu Koreeda, the “Master Director of Japan,” the movie contains a deep message about abortion, child abandonment, and a new type of family.
Singer and actress IU played So-young, a mother who abandoned her baby on a rainy day in the movie.
Actors Song Kang-ho and Kang Dong-won’s roles tried to sell the child that So-young left in the baby box somewhere, while Bae Doo-na and Lee Joo-young turned into police officers who tried to catch them on the spot.
The running time of “Broker,” which received rave reviews at the 75th Cannes International Film Festival, is 129 minutes.
Attention is focusing on whether “Broker,” which proved its name by ranking first in the reservation rate a day before its release, will be as popular as “The Roundup,” which attracted 9 million viewers.
