The new figure marks the highest number of first-day moviegoers achieved by any film since South Korea raised its COVID-19 threat alert level to “severe” in February, effectively shutting down the movie theater industry for months. The previous record was held by another zombie film, Park Shin Hye and Yoo Ah In‘s “#ALIVE,” which drew a total of 204,071 moviegoers on its first day in theaters last month.

Responding to the news that “Peninsula” had set a new post-COVID-19 record, producer Lee Dong Ha commented, “Director Yeon Sang Ho and I said to one another, ‘We released the movie at a difficult time, so this is a meaningful achievement.’ We also said, ‘Let’s keep an eye on how it does long-term.’

As “Train To BusanSequel “Peninsula” hit a new record, congratulations to the cast and crew of “Peninsula”!
