"The Grand Heist" has risen to second place on the list of top-selling homegrown films for this year, drawing nearly 4.7 million viewers, an official box-office tally showed Friday.

The historical comedy starring actor Cha Tae-hyun attracted 4.689 million moviegoers until Thursday, according to the data from the Korean Film Commission.

The record made the movie about thieves stealing ice blocks during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) the second top-selling Korean film as of Friday, beating "Nameless Gangster," seen by 4.684 million people, by a narrow margin.

On top of the list remains the local box-office sensation "The Thieves," which drew more than 12 million viewers. (Yonhap)
