To commemorate this milestone, Director Lee and the cast of ‘Exit’ uploaded pictures and videos while sporting yellow gloves that helped in their survival in the movie.

Additionally, instead of portraying sensation and violence, the movie has gained a lot of fame for its thrilling action scenes and relatable humour. The movie has also gained status for being family-friendly – which you can watch also with a significant other or friends!

‘Exit’ tells the story of a young, unemployed man named Yong Nam (played by Jo Jung Suk) who runs into a former fellow college student, Eui Joo (played by Yoona). The two try to escape the city that gets enveloped in a mysterious toxic gas.
