Korean Box Office: March 2-4

5th March 2012

Well, the new semester has started and my free time seems to have evaporated.  I am hoping that I will be able to keep up with my usual posting schedule, but it may be difficult, especially on Tuesday… but I think I will be able to handle it once I am in a routine.  Anyway, below we have this weeks box office which contains quite a few changes.


Love Fiction, a film starring Ha Jeong-woo and Kong Hyo-jin, bumped Nameless Gangster out of first and, because of the second place film This Means War, the former number one movie landed in third place though it may yet reach five million viewers before it fades from the box office charts. Even though it is in number 1, a close friend warned me away from Love Fiction saying that it starts out just fine for a romantic comedy but goes much too long. He mentioned that by the middle of the films 120+ minute running time he and his girlfriend were bored and many people in the theater had started taking out their phones and were texting. Romantic comedies are not usually films I am interested in anyway but I would have considered seeing it because of Ha Jeong-woo before I heard my friend’s review. I will save my pennies until later in the week when Helpless opens.  More on that and the other films opening in theaters this week in tomorrow’s post.
