Famous actor Hyun Bin worked hard this holiday season to secure the best future for his child. Even now, the actor is focused on the promotions of his new movie, “Confidential Assignment 2: International”.
In fact, “Confidential Assignment 2: International” is the return work of Hyun Bin, who took a long break after announcing his relationship with Son Ye Jin on January 1st, 2021.
As a result, many people are paying attention to whether “Confidential Assignment 2: International” would do well.
However, over 1 week after release, “Confidential Assignment 2: International” has received both good and bad news.
The good news is that the movie has surpassed 4 million viewers as of 7 AM (KST) on September 17th, within 11 days of release, which is a huge feat.
Since the break-even point of “Confidential Assignment 2: Internation” is 3.5 million viewers, and the movie is still receiving a lot of love, it can be considered a success for Hyun Bin.
However, in terms of the “Confidential Assignment” franchise, “Confidential Assignment 2” is doing worse than the first installment, and seems to be struggling to surpass its predecessor’s box office success of 7.81 million tickets sold in 2017.
At the same time, compared to the first movie, “Confidential Assignment 2: International” did not have to compete directly with any large works, and is dominating cinema sales.
In particular, while reception during the first week was explosive, from the 2nd week on, “Confidential Assignment 2: Internation”, witnessed a huge decrease in the number of audiences.
Accordingly, some film industry officials predicted that it would be difficult to surpass the record of 7.81 million viewers unless the movie managed a significant rebound.
Meanwhile, “Confidential Assignment 2: International” tells the exciting story of the North Korean detective Rim Cheol Ryeong (Hyun Bin), the South Korean detect Kang Jin Tae (Yoo Hae Jin), and the FBI agent Jack (Daniel Henney), who join hands to investigate and catch a global criminal organization.
It is said that the appearance of the three people, who pretend to be on the same side, deceiving each other little by little, and conducting a joint investigation is three times more fun than the first movie.
