Korean Box Office: March 25-27

28th March 2011

I was half hoping that my inabilty to post images was caused by a problem with my laptop at home. However, I am encountering the same problem using my office computer.  So I will type out this week’s box office results here instead of using Photoshop.   

1. King’s Speech (uk)–  2. World Invasion (us)– 3. Little Black Dress (kr)– 4. I Love You (kr)–  5. Wiheomhan Sangkyeonrye (kr)– 6. Red Riding Hood (us)– 7. Black Swan (us)— 8. Romantic Heaven (kr)– 9. Morning Glory (us)– 10. My Name is Kahn (in)

It was a very tight race between King’s Speech and World Invasion and the end result was separated by less than half a percentage point. The former film took 15.6% percent of the box office on 404 screens while the latter received 15.2% on 359 screens. The Korean film I Love You has now spent four weeks in the fourth tier while director Jang Jin’s new film, Romantic Heaven, was not very well received. It earned just 3.9% of the box office tallies on 338 screens and landed at number 8 in its opeing week. The fifth place film has not even officially opened according to KOFIC. That will happen next week depsite being on some 354 screens this past weekend.  It has not yet been assigned an English name.  That film, and others opening this coming week, are listed below in alphabetical order.
