Sleep tells the story of a newlywed couple, Hyun Soo and Soo Jin, whose happiness is disrupted by the husband Hyun Soo's disturbing behavior during sleep and the horrifying secret that begins when he falls asleep. It stars actors Lee Sun Kyun and Jung Yu Mi.

The film has consistently maintained its position as the top-grossing movie since its release on the 6th. Despite the competition from new releases in its second week, it continues to perform well, drawing attention.

Achieving this milestone on its 11th day since release, it is expected to surpass the 1 million cumulative viewers mark easily. The film has received praise from director Bong Joon Ho as the "most unique horror film in the past decade," generating anticipation from audiences for its artistic quality and the chemistry between Jung Yu Mi and Lee Sun Kyun.

As a well-crafted genre film, the film's success is expected to continue into the coming weekend.
