Seen in Jeonju

Korean Box Office: April 23-25

27th April 2010


In its second week in theaters, Best Seller was able to creep slip past Clash Of the Titans which, after three weeks at number one, slipped a notch in the rankings. A Long Visit (which I had called Mother-in-Law last week based on a direct translation of the title–it has since been assigned an English title)–opened strong and landed in third. Best Seller’s achievement will be short lived however, as Iron Man 2 is opening this Thursday. Also expect the movie listed below as Gooreumeul Beonseonan Dalcheorom–(a romanization of the Korean title–it also has yet to be assigned an English name)–to open strong.  These and other movies being released this week are listed below. ..and of course I should mention that this Thursday also marks the opening of the 11th Jeonju Film Festival.
