“Extreme Job” surpassed its breakeven point of 2 million viewers four days after its release on Jan. 23. According to the Korean Film Council, the movie became the Korean box office’s top comedy film of all time with over 12.8 million viewers, as it also surpassed 100 billion won in ticket sales Sunday.

IBK finished with a winning record in its movie investments for 2018, with nine of the 17 films it invested in surpassing the breakeven point last year.

The “Along With the Gods” film series, in which the bank invested some 2 billion won, has proved a megahit, attracting over 10 million moviegoers each.
