Korean Box Office: Nov. 19-21

22nd November 2010


Choin’s super-powered action kept this film safely at the top of the box office charts for a second week in a row, taking in more than a third of the ticket sales over the weekend. It’s closest runner up depended on where you live–either Social Network or the Unjust. The Korean film whose title translates as ‘Two Women’ was assigned an English name last week and is now being called Love In Between. It opened at a disappointing 8th though the other new Korean film, Festival, fared much better. This week sees the remake of the Manchu opening as well as actress Song Hye-gyo in an Amercian film, Fetish (although I don’t imagine that it will get much screen time), Song Seung-heon in a Japanese remake of Patrick Swayze’s Ghost and the return of Kim Hae-soo and Han Seok-gyu.
