Korean Box Office: October 9-11

11th October 2009


Closer to Heaven surprisingly remains at the top of the box office charts although both The Sword With No Name and Where is Jeong Seung-pil nearly overtook it this week.  Given the percentages, I believe that all three will fall to I Come With The Rain opening later this week. I Come With The Rain stars Lee Byeong-heon and Takura Kimura–both box-office draws. Other films being released this week are listed below.


A. The Battle of Algiers (it/alg)- d. Gillo Pontecorvo, starring Brahim Hadjadj, Jean Martin

B. Busan (kr)- d. Park Ji-won, starring Kim Yeong-ho, Yoo Seung-ho

C. District 9 (s. africa)- d. Neill Blomkamp, starring Sharlto Copley, Jed Brophy

D. I Come With the Rain (fr/us)- d. Ahn Hung Tran, starring Lee Byeong-heon, Josh Hartnett

E. Meet Bill (us)- d. Bernie Goldmann, starring Aaron Eckhart, Jessica Alba <Being released in Korea as Goodbye Chocolate>

F. Planet B-Boy (us)- d. Benson Lee, starring Vasco Nunes, Benson Lee

G. Tears in the Arctic (kr) d. Jo Joon-mook and Heo Tae-jeon <documentary> Narrated by Ahn Seong-gi
