Seen in Jeonju

Korean Box Office: January 22-24

24th January 2010


Avatar joined a very exclusive club over the weekend.  It became one of just six movies to earn over 10 million viewers in Korean theaters. The other films are Taegukgi, Shilmido, The King and the Clown, The Host and Haeundae.   Attack the Gas Station 2 landed in the second tier position, but I think it was just a curiostity factor that drew people in (like me).  It is not one that I will be recommending to anyone… This  week’s new releases are listed below.
