In response to the news that “Peninsula” had set a new post COVID 19 record, producer Lee Dong Ha commented: “Director Yeon Sang Ho and I said to ourselves:” We released the film in a difficult time is one significant achievement. “We also said,” Let’s keep an eye on how it works in the long run. “
