Korean Box Office: December 11-13

13th December 2009


I don’t have too much to say about this week’s box office.  Frankly, I was pretty busy last weekend due to end-of-semester work and didn’t pay too much attention to what was going on in movies.  (that is not to say I didn’t watch some DVDs while calculating grades–as soon as I get the grades uploaded, I will write a review or two).

 Below are the films opening this coming week.  I am certain Avatar will do well–not sure about Girlfriends (though I know I have no interest in it). It may do well as the ‘couple’s movie’ for the Christmas season.  I think both Just Friends? and Missing Person look interesting, but as independent arthouse films they probably won’t get a wide release.
