What followed next was a powerful nine-week run in the domestic box office where the film eventually went on to gather more than 5 million viewers.Although it did open in the number two seat slightly behind Another Public Enemy, word of mouth soon launched it into the number one position during its second week.In a year that has been lacking in unexpected discoveries, Git is an exciting find.
Named Lee So-yeon (played by -- sure enough -- actress Lee So-yeon of Untold Scandal), the woman is twelve years his junior, and possesses an unusual energy and enthusiasm.
Almost missed among all that was a quiet film directed by a virtual unknown but starring the talented Jo Seung-woo.
The media found it interesting as 'a story of human triumph' but most people seemed certain that Kang Woo-suk's feature would dominate the box office.
This may have been what happened with Git by Song Il-gon, the director of Flower Island (2001), Spider Forest (2004), and various award-winning short films including The Picnic (1999).
Git was originally commissioned as a 30-minute segment of the digital omnibus film 1.3.6.
