Korean Box Office: September 9-11

11th September 2011

Last week, I had not posted the box office totals.  As I said in my last post, I was very busy with the start of school.. but as I had written it all out by hand in the notebook I keep I probably could have taken some time to post it..   Anyway, I do have this weeks ready for you. With lots of new movies for the holiday that started September 11 and will run through the 13, there were lots of new movies. In fact, 6 out of the top ten films are new to theaters. 


The film Arrow: The Ultimate Weapon fared very well depsite the onslaught of new movies and the fact that it has now been in theaters for a full month. It fell just one place behind the number one movie this week, the comedy Marrying the Mafia 4.  Hindsight  (the official English name of the move whose Korean title is Blue Salt)dropped like a stone and fell five places. In fact, I would normally expect it to fall out of the box office all together next week except for the fact that only 4 new films are opening this coming week and surprisingly, the ‘best’ of them seems to be Shark Night… I guess it is a chance to catch up on some of the older films I have not seen yet. 

Happy Chuseok!
