"Broker," which won the Best Actor Award at this year's Cannes Film Festival, has been sold to 188 countries.

The movie's distributor CJ ENM on June 14 said the sale to 188 countries is a record for a Korean film.

Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda, the film features a Korean cast like Song Kang-ho, who won Best Actor at Cannes, Gang Dong-won and Bae Doona. "Broker" also gained attention for being sold to 171 countries before its release.

The movie's opening schedule abroad is taking shape, starting with Indonesia on June 16, Hong Kong and Singapore on June 23, Japan, Vietnam and Taiwan on June 24 and France on Dec. 7.

The movie will also close the 69th Sydney Film Festival in Australia, an event that ends on June 19.

In Korea, "Broker" in its first weekend attracted an estimated 515,000 moviegoers since its June 8 release to rank second in the box office. As of June 14, the film remains in second with 830,000 viewers.
