Their most recent movie, Exit, proved to be very successful. As of August 7, it was reported that 4 million moviegoers already went to see their film within its first 8 days.
The action-comedy film is rushing at the same speed as the previous successful movie of the year, Extreme Job. Additionally, it surpassed the 4 million mark one day earlier than the 2015 hit Veteran.
It’s worthwhile to mention that Exit received a staggering high score of 97% on the CGV Golden Index. This high score indicates that the moviegoers were extremely satisfied with the movie that they watched. Extreme Jobs also received the same score earlier this year.
To celebrate their success, CJ Entertainment posted a video on their Instragram account.

Their director and writer of the movie Lee Sang Geun was also part of the video. Each cast member held up balloons that spelled out the title of their movie. Meanwhile, the director held the congratulatory cake.
The success of the movie can be based on its fresh concept as well as the actors in the movie. Their impressive and natural acting didn’t seem forced at all. All generations are sure to enjoy the movie.
