Seen in Jeonju

Korean Box Office: April 22-24

25th April 2011


Fast Five aka The Fast and the Furious 5 opened strong this past weekend and dislodged Suspicious Customers from the first tier of the box office, taking 33% of the ticket sales. It should enjoy the top while it can.  I think this coming week will see that spot taken over by Thor.  Also opening is the fifth and latest installment of the If You Were Me Series.  These, and the other new movies opening this week can be seen below. Also opening this week is the Jeonju International Film Festival.  Tickets are selling out fast –check the website and reserve online if you want to go!
