Seen in Jeonju

Korean Box Office: Feb. 25-27

28th February 2011


Although it put in an excellent showing, the critically acclaimed Black Swan failed to dislodge the mystery Children… from the number one spot.  The latter film managed to nearly double its box office tallies over the course of the week inching it closer to 1.5 million viewers. However, it seems unlikely that Children… will overtake the historic comedy Detective K in terms of numbers of movie-goers paying to see it. Even as it starts its slow slide down the box office chart, Detective K has sold nearly 4 and a half million tickets since it opened at the end of January.   Late Autumn, starring Hyeon Bin,  dropped even faster, moving from number two last week to number 6 but if you are a fan of Hyeon Bin you have nothing to worry about. He will be starring in a new film opening this week called Come Rain, Come Shine. Information about this and the other new movies are listed below.
