Korean Horror Pic ‘Exhuma’ Roars Towards 10 Million Admissions

Exhuma (Korean title: Pa-myo) has taken $67.8 million at the Korean box office, having notched more than 9.3 million admissions.

The film stars Choi Min-sik, Kim Go-eun, Yoo Hae-jin and Lee Do-hyun and is directed by Jang Jae-hyun. Exhuma follows two shamans, a feng shui expert and an undertaker as they seek to help a Korean-American family haunted by a generational curse.

Box office data from KOFIC shows the movie has taken 24 days for Exhuma to cross reach the nine million admissions mark, which is three days faster than last year’s most-viewed Korean feature, 12.12: The Day, a historical film set during the country’s military coup in 1979.

Exhuma has also topped the box office and admissions charts every week since its release, sitting above Dune: Part Two for the last three weeks.

Produced by Showbox Entertainment, Exhuma first premiered in the Forum section of the Berlin International Film Festival on February 16, before releasing in South Korea on February 22.

Exhuma is writer-director Jang’s third film, after helming The Priests in 2015 and Svaha: The Sixth Finger in 2019. Before that, he made a short film titled 12th Assistant Deacon and clinched the Best Director award at the Jeonju International Film Festival in 2014.
