Korean Box Office: July 16-18

18th July 2010


It was another good week at the theaters for attendence with people escaping either the deluge of rain on Friday and Saturday or the heat of Sunday.  Moss came out on top as expected and the media followed its progress from opening day predicting correctly that it would reach one million viewers by the end of the weekend. Meanwhile, both The Servant and 71: Into the Fire slipped quietly over the 3 million mark–a fact that would have been given much fanfare a few years ago.   This week marks the start of vacation for primary school students which explains why the movies opening this week are mostly for younger viewers.  I don’t expect any of these to have a strong influence on the top tiers of the box office charts though.  The movies opening next are listed below.


1. Detective Conan: The Lost Ship in the Sky (jp)– d. Yasuichiro Yamamoto, voices Minami Takayama, Kappei Yanaguchi

2. Inception (us/uk)– d. Christopher Nolan, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe

3. Maeumi 2 (kr)– d. Lee Jeong-cheol, starring Dalyi, Seong Dong-il

4. Paco and the Magic Book (jp)– d. Tetsuya Nakashima, starring Koji Yakusho, Akaye Wilson

5. Sorcerer’s Apprentice (us)– d. Jon Turteltaub, starring Nicholas Cage, Jay Baruchel
