“Kill Boksoon” Jeon Do Yeon, “Ranking No.1 worldwide is amazing, right?… Please compliment me”

Actress Jeon Do Yeon expressed her happiness knowing her new work “Kill Boksoon” charting No.1 on Netflix’s non-English movie category.

Jeon Do Yeon had an interview at a cafe in Samcheong-dong, Seoul on April 5th and talked about Netflix’s new film “Kill Boksoon” (directed by Byun Sung Hyun). Regarding the news that the movie ranked No.1 earlier on the same day, the actress said, “It’s amazing, right? Please compliment me”, with a big smile.

She continued, “When I first heard that ‘Kill Boksoon’ would be released on Netflix, I thought it was a great idea. The reason is that I felt regretful for my previous work ‘Beasts Clawing at Straws’ (2020), which was released during the Covid-19 pandemic peak and suffered great damage. I was relieved that good works on Netflix would not suffer the same situation.” 

Jeon Do Yeon added, “However, Netflix productions bring a different stress compared to other projects released in theaters. I have to pay attention to both the movie’s rank and the number of views. That’s why I keep streaming ‘Kill Boksoon’ at home.”

According to the weekly viewing time rankings released by Netflix on the 5th, “Kill Boksoon” recorded 19.61 million hours of viewing time from the 27th of last month to the 2nd of this month, ranking first in the non-English film category. Among the Korean films released on Netflix this year, “Kill Boksoon” is the second work to rank No.1 in this category following “Jung_E”.
