Period film “The Throne” topped the advance ticket sales chart on the day of its release Wednesday.

According to Korean Film Council, “The Throne” accounted for 54 percent of advance ticket sales with sales of more than 100,000 tickets.

The film portrays the conflict between Joseon Dynasty’s King Yeongjo, who wanted to be a dominating ruler at all times, and the affection-deprived Prince Sado, who yearned for his father’s recognition.

The role of Sado is played by actor Yoo Ah-in, whose recent crime-action work “Veteran” is currently storming the box office and advancing in North America and broader parts of Asia.
