As per Muse Communication, the film already reached the record-breaking sales of NT$360 million (about 1.318 billion yen) in just a span of 17 days since the film's opening in Taiwanese theaters last October 30. The film surpassed the NT$343 million sales of the previous title holder "Frozen 2" by Disney.
