Korean Box Office: November 12-14

15th November 2010


There is a new number one movie in town this week. Choin soundly beat Unjust, its nearest competitor, for the first rank place, ending the latter’s stay at the top of the box office charts. I find the naming of Choin a little strange. The romanized form of the Korean titles is ChoNeungRyeokJa. Instead of calling the film something like ‘The Telepath’ (which is what it is about), the Korean Film Council is listing the international title as Choin, which I think is unfortunate.  It is going to wind up being called as a single syllable word (like ‘loin’ or ‘groin’ rather than how it is meant to be pronounced as a two-syllable word (Cho-in). Maybe that will change at a later date.
