‘The Mimic’ surpasses 1 million sales mark
By Monday, “The Mimic” sold another 150,000 tickets.
According to the CGV research center, the demographic analysis shows women in their 20s are the biggest audience of “The Mimic,” representing 36.8 percent, which is more than 10 percentage points higher than the percentage of women in their 20s buying tickets for other movies.
Many factors, ranging from the unfamiliar concept, auditory stimulation and combination of a realistic motherhood portrayed by the actress Yum Jung-ah were considered imperative in attracting the young female viewers.
“The Mimic” is significant for another reason - it is the only Korean film released this year with a female lead that has attracted over one million ticket sales.
