Seen in Jeonju

Korean Box Office: June 17-19

20th June 2011


Well, exams have been graded and the final scores have been calculated and entered. I am now free to work on reviews and indexing films again.  Last week, I treated myself to watching Sunny and I was not disappointed. Like I said here, it is easily the best film I’ve seen this year.  Sunny came in at number two this week–six weeks after it was released– and has consistently been taking in about 17% of the box office totals. It currently has been seen by more than 5 million viewers. The number one film, Kung Fu Panda 2, just barely managed to defend its position in the rankings by just half a percentage point.

Coming this week, there is a fim called My Sassy Girl 2.  However, this is a Chinese film, not a Korean movie.  Green Day looks interesting…it has been in the works for years.  However, I doubt either of these movies will have much of an impact on the box office chart next week.
