A new milestone for Disney’s ‘Frozen’


Disney’s ‘Frozen’

Disney’s animated film “Frozen” passed 10 million admissions in Korea yesterday, becoming just the second Hollywood movie to make the major milestone, following “Avatar” in 2009.

Sony Pictures Korea, the local distributor for “Frozen,” said that the movie reached 10,000,315 admissions as of 11:20 a.m. yesterday, based on data by the Korean Film Council.

Since its release on Jan. 16, “Frozen” has become a nationwide craze, with the movie’s soundtrack topping the charts, led by the song “Let It Go” - in both the original version by Idina Menzel and a Korean-language version by pop star Hyo-lyn. Storybooks and toys based on the movie also are selling briskly.

“Frozen” also passed 80 billion won ($75 million) yesterday, the film’s best result anywhere in the world, save the United States where it has earned $385 million.
