Next target for the seemingly unstoppable movie [The Thieves]? Asia and Toronto!
After holding down the #1 spot at the domestic box offices for the fifth week and having attracted over 11 million movie-goers in Korea, [The Thieves] will also be premiering in movie theaters across Asia.
The date is set for September 6th in Hong Kong and Indonesia, September 13th in Singapore, followed by unconfirmed dates in October and November for Malaysia and Thailand. The news of the premiere dates comes after the movie was agreed to be exported to eight Asian countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, and Thailand. Jeon Ji-hyun (or Gianna), who played the role of "Yenny-Call" in the movie, will be making appearances at gala premiere events in Hong Kong and China.
