Seen in Jeonju

Korean Box Office: March 12-14

16th March 2010


Wow–I have been busy. Putting most of my classes in the first two days of the  week may look great on paper, but I didn’t take into the account reality. Oy–I’m exhausted on Monday and Tuesday I can barely walk. However, now I can just sit and catch up with things–starting with the Box Office.  I was very surprised to see From Paris With Love at number two. It is rare that a European movie does well in Korea. Alice in Wonderland managed to defend the number one spot quite handily though, taking in more than 40% of the movie-goers. My prediction, however, is that it will not be able to remain there for a third week as the hardboiled Outlaw and comic Yukhyeolpo Kangdodan (no English name yet) open on Thursday.  Below is a list of what else is coming.


1. Cape No. 7 (taiwan)–d. Te-sheng Wi, starring Van, Chie Tanaka

2. Daybreaker (us/au)– Michael Sprieg, starring Ethan Hawke, William Dafoe

3. An Education (uk)–d. Lone Sherfig, starring Carey Mulligan, Peter Sarsgaard

4. Help Me, Eros(taiwan)– d. Kang-sheng Lee, starring Kang-sheng Lee, Jane Liao

5. The Man Next Door (kr)– d. Jang Dong-hong, starring Yoon Je-moon, Seo Tae-hwa

6. Outlaw (kr)– d. Kim Cheol-min, Shin Jae-hyeok, starring Kam Woo-seong, Jang Shin-yeong

7. Shutter Island (us)– d. Martin Scorsese, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo

8. Yukhyeolpo Kangdodan (kr)– d. Kang Hye-jin, starring Na Moon-hee, Kim Soo-mi
