Seen in Jeonju

Korean Box Office: February 4-6

7th February 2011


The long holiday helped boost theater attendance this past weekend but did not cause any shift at all in the box office ranks from last week.  One of the changes is that the number one movie is now being called Detective K whereas last week I listed it under its romanized Korean title Joseon Myeongtam Jeong.  Also, Rapunzel was able to secure a place for itself at the bottom of the chart even though it has not officially opened yet. That opening is coming this week.  The box office totals here in Jeonju were slightly different than the national totals. Here Pyeongyang Seong  (which, next time I refer to it will be called Battlefield Heroes as it was just assigned an English title as I was preparing this) was in the number 2 spot with 21.6% and Gulliver’s Travels was number 3 with 20.6%.  Listed below are the films opening this coming week.
