The movie “The Witch 2 – The Other One,” which returned with a more expanded worldview and stronger action, is receiving high expectations.
According to the Korean Film Council’s Korea Box-office Information System on Jun 13th, “The Witch 2 – The Other One” topped the overall reservation rate ahead of its release on Jun 15th.
This result draws attention as the movie surpassed all of the prominent box-office competitors in June, which are regaining vitality, such as “The Roundup,” “Broker,” “Buzz Lightyear,” and “Jurassic World: Dominion.”
In particular, “The Witch 2 – The Other One” is expected to continue the action series craze in theaters following “The Roundup,” which became the first movie to reach 10 million since the pandemic.
The sequel to “The Witch,” which caused a theater sensation in the summer of 2018, depicts what happens when different forces, for different purposes, pursue a girl (Shin Si-ah) who survived alone in a devastated secret research institute.
In addition to the new actress Shin Si-ah, who passed the audition for “The Witch 2 – The Other One” with a competition rate of 1408:1, Park Eun-bin, Seo Eun-soo, Jingu, Sung Yu-bin, and Lee Jong-seok will appear as well.
Jo Min-soo and Kim Da-mi, from the previous film, will also appear.
Attention is focusing on whether “The Witch 2 – The Other One” will be able to succeed as a series beyond the previous works that were loved by 3.18 million viewers.
