It broke the previous record set by "Deliver Us from Evil," which reached the 2-million mark on the fifth day of its release in 2019.

"The Roundup," released Wednesday, garnered about 467,000 viewers on opening day. It marked the largest first-day score in the past three years for a homegrown film, outnumbering the previous record of 354,000 set by the zombie apocalypse thriller "Peninsula" in July 2020.

"The Roundup" tells the story of Detective Ma Seok-do (Ma) heading to Vietnam to extradite a suspect only to find out about additional murder cases involving an unknown killer who has committed crimes against tourists for many years.
