According to the Korean Film Council’s Integrated Movie Ticketing System, “I Am Moon Jae-in,” which was released on March 10, has accumulated 106,171 moviegoers as of March 22. This is a rather poor performance.
The movie “I Am Roh Moo-hyun,” released in 2017, had 1.85 million viewers. In its first four days (including the weekend) alone, it mobilized 566,391 viewers메이저사이트. Last year’s “You Are the Fatherland” had a final total of 330,000 viewers.
Representative Yong said, “We are trying to boost the box office by distributing free coupons, but moviegoers’ choices are sobering,” and added, “I hope you will be forgotten now, just like the president who said he wanted to be forgotten.”
The movie, “This is Moon Jae-in,” features many scenes of the former president’s daily life after leaving office, such as him taking a nap and planting a vegetable garden. The film’s director, Lee Chang-jae, also made a documentary on former President Roh Moo-hyun in 2017.
Initially, the film contained criticisms of Moon’s current administration, such as “the achievements made in five years have collapsed,” but it was released after the controversial date was removed.
