The Thieves cost $14 million to make, making it one of the most expensive South Korean films made. It also became one of the country's biggest hits, second only to The Host in terms of tickets sold in its native country. It wasn't able to find a major audience here, but it did perform well compared to most limited releases. Should the home market prove to be more lucrative?
