For three consecutive days, The Drug King beat out Marvel’s Aquaman and Swing Kids.

According to the Korean Film Council, the movie The Drug King starring Song Kang-ho, Jo Jung-suk, and Bae Doona beat out Aquaman and Swing Kids, which were released on the same day.

The film delves into one of the drug peddling scandals in Korea that took place in the 1970s. The narrative along with the integration of music and style of that era have served to create a fantastically enthralling and thrilling world for viewers.

By Saturday, the film has garnered 938,773 admissions. That is a difference of more than 100,000 with Aquaman (844,379) and about half a million more than Swing Kids (525,688) on the same date.
