Comedy-drama ‘I Can Speak’ hurtles past 3 mln attendance mark


SEOUL, Oct. 11 (Yonhap) — The South Korean comedy-drama “I Can Speak” has surpassed 3 million in the cumulative number of viewers, data showed Wednesday.

The film starring Na Moon-hee and Lee Je-hoon attracted 20,771 viewers to 611 screens around the country Tuesday, taking its 20-day total to 3,001,767, according to real-time box-office figures from the Korean Film Council.

Directed by Kim Hyun-seok, “I Can Speak” tells a heartwarming tale of an unlikely friendship between a civil service employee, played by Lee, and Na’s lonely curmudgeon character who regularly hassles workers at the local ward by lodging trivial complaints. They develop a close relationship when Lee’s character ends up teaching English to the lady and learns of her painful past as a former sex slave during Japan’s colonial rule of Korea.
