SEOUL, Oct. 6 (Yonhap) -- "The Fortress," a South Korean film depicting King Injo of the Joseon Dynasty taking refuge from a Chinese invasion, gathered an audience of 2 million people in the four days after its release, its distributor said Friday.

CJ Entertainment said earlier that "The Fortress," released Tuesday, became the fastest movie released during the Chuseok holiday to surpass 1 million viewers, which it did in only two days.

The latest figure also sets a new record for movies released over the Chuseok holiday.

Directed by Hwang Dong-hyuck and adapted from a best-selling novel, "The Fortress" follows the embattled king's 47 days of hiding from an invasion of the Qing Dynasty, which ultimately ended in him surrendering to a conquering Chinese general.
