Small-budget movie "Miracle in Cell No. 7" raked in net profit of 70 billion won as of Saturday night, the film's distributor said.

Only 3.5 billion won was invested into the production of the movie, directed by Lee Hwan-kyung, according to the NEW.

The comedy attracted a total of 10,000,911 moviegoers as of 9:30 p.m. Saturday, the distributor said.

Only seven other South Korean films have so far surpassed the 10 million mark. The most recent milestone was recorded last year by the costume drama "Gwanghae: the Man Who Became the King" starring actor Lee Byung-hun.

"Miracle in Cell No. 7" depicts a retarded, childish man who raises a young daughter in cell No. 7 with the help of other inmates.
