“Kundo: Age of the Rampant” drew a record-high 1 million viewers in its first 48 hours, dwarfing its competitors at the box office.

In its first two days, “Kundo,” directed by Yoon Jong-bin and starring Ha Jung-woo and Gang Dong-won, replaced the former records by “Transformer: Dark of the Moon” (2011) starring Shia LaBeouf and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and “Secretly, Greatly” (2013) starring Kim Soo-hyun. 



“Kundo” is set in mid-19th century Joseon, in the 13th year of King Cheoljong’s reign. Dolmuchi, played by Ha, organizes a resistance group of fiefs and bandits called “Kundo” and confronts the loyal army of classist Jo Yoon, played by Gang, to bring freedom and justice to society.
