Marry My Dead Body Creeps Into Weekly Global Top 10 Ranking With 3.4M Hours Viewed In Five Days

Since its August 10 release, the film has landed in the Daily Top 10 Film ranking in eight Asian markets, including Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines, and has even taken the top spot in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Vietnam.

“I am grateful for the warm reception and how more viewers get to share the special and unique ghost-human relationship portrayed in the film,” said lead actor Hsu Kuang Han in response to the film’s positive global reactions.

Austin Lin, who plays Mao Pang-Yu, the deceased husband, expressed gratitude to “viewers from all over the world who have joined in the laughter and tears.”

“I am delighted to know that fans around the world can now watch and fall in love with MARRY MY DEAD BODY,” said Gingle Wang, whose unexpected portrayal in the film has received positive feedback from fans. “I look forward to bringing more moving and compelling stories that resonate with the audience.”

A new behind-the-scenes featurette starring lead actors Hsu Kuang Han, Austin Lin, and Gingle Wang shares their experience working on the film, as well as director Cheng Wei-hao’s creative setting for the film, its cast, and its artistic style.

MARRY MY DEAD BODY had a successful run in the international film circuit in addition to its stellar performance on Netflix and at the box office, and is the first Taiwanese film to win three audience awards in the same year at the New York Asian Film Festival, Asian Pop-up Cinema, and Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival.

“My goal in making a film is for more people to see it, and if you have seen the film, you are family,” director Cheng Wei Hao said of the accolades. I’m excited to have more people join the family.”

During Ghost Month, the film brings the unique Taiwanese tradition of ghost marriage to audiences worldwide. It tells the story of Wu Ming-Han (Hsu Kuang Han), a straight police officer who is homophobic and afraid of ghosts. While gathering evidence for a case, he inadvertently picks up a red envelope and is forced to marry Mao Pang-Yu (Austin Lin), who died under mysterious circumstances. The two must put aside their differences and work together to solve the case, seeking justice for Mao and embarking on a ridiculous and tear-jerking journey together.
