Seen in Jeonju

Korean Box Office: October 1-3

4th October 2010


Cyrano Agency stays at the top of the charts for a second week in a row.  The only new films to make an impact were the Korean comedy Banga? Banga! and the American film Eat, Pray, Love.  I was a little disappointed that Salinui Kang failed to secure a decent release–only 14 screens.  I thought the film looked interesting, but with less than 1100 people paying to see it last weekend, I may have to wait for the DVD…

The new movies being released this week  are listed below.


1.Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame (ch/hk)– d. Hark Tsui, starring Andy Lau, Tony Leung Ka Tai

2. Godfather: Part 2 (us- yes the 1974 movie)– d. Francis Ford Coppola, starring Al Pacino, Robert Duvall

3. Letters to Juliet (us)– d. Gary Winick, starring Amanda Seyfried, Christopher Egan

4. Star of Hope (kr)– d. Lee Hong-seok <documentary>
