Korean Box Office: July 22-24

26th July 2011


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 remains at the top of the box office while the former number two film, Transformers 3 falls to fourth place as the number of screens it was on was greatly reduced to make way for the big budget Korean War film Front Line.  Lee Min-ki’s motorcycle action film Quick, surprisingly, landed in number three with nearly a fifth of the box office totals. This year’s surprise hit, Sunny, finally relinquished the number 3 slot after two months near the top of the box office charts.  The comparitively low budget film wound up attracting more than 7 million viewers sans explosions,  car chases, grandiose special effects or robots. However, it is likely to drop out  of the top-ten next weekend as no less than 11 new films open. Of course, not all of them will make an impact on the box office charts, but with vacation starting for elementary schools, the animations will likely take over the lower tiers. For what is opening this week, just see below.
