Seen in Jeonju

Korean Box Office: February 19-21

21st February 2010


Not to much changed in the upper rankings of the box office. In fact, the only thing I want to comment on is the absence of The Neighbor Zombie which also opened last week.  The Neighbor Zombie ranked 21st on the national box office chart.  It did not open in Jeonju–actually not only did it not open in Jeonju, it was not released anywhere in the entire North Jeolla Province. Therefore, I was unable to see it. The movie had a very limited release–only 12 theaters throughout the country. While that is not good news, there is a plus side. Hana TV often picks up these smaller releases and has them airing, for a fee, within a month. I will probably be able to see it soon.

Below is what will be released in theaters this coming weekend–the last weekend of winter vacation before classes start again.
