 The film All About My Wife has managed to shoot through the 2.5 million mark just 17 days after its premiere on June 2.

According to the Korean Film Council′s Compiled Ticket Computer Network, All About My Wife drew in 20,595 people on June 2, rounding out the total number of tickets sold thus far to 2,620,261.

For that day, it ranked second on the daily Box Office chart, just below the Hollywood blockbuster Men in Black 3. It was the top Korean film on the chart.

 The film gathered more than one million moviegoers in a week, and drew two million in 12 days.

A rep from the production company Zip Cinema said, "These numbers were reached five days faster than Architecture 101, which started a ′first love syndrome′ at the box office and gathered an audience of four million, and 19 days faster than the biggest film of 2011, Sunny, which gathered a total audience count of 7.4 million. It was also reached eight days faster than the 25 days it took the romance film Chilling Romance.

Films usually draw the most audiences in its first week, but the big numbers that follow come from the power of word of mouth. The film is showing signs of becoming a long-runner by relating to not only teenagers and youth in their 20s, but also to those in their 30s and 40s.

All About My Wife, which premiered on May 17, is a romcom about how a man plots to divorce his wife by asking a Casanova to seduce her. Im Soo Jung, Lee Sun Gyun and Ryu Seung Ryong star in the film.

Director Lim Sang Soo′s Taste of Money, which premiered on the same day as All About My Wife, ranked seventh at the box office for June 2 with an audience of 19,947. Its total amounts up to 1,115,849. The film gathered more than one million moviegoers on May 28, but only managed to draw in 110,000 people in the week after.
