Korea Weekend Box Office - March 25-27

Another boring week at the theaters in Korea. Most of the Hollywood films were released last year in the United States. Including top film, the surgery thriller AWAKE took the top spot with a rather wimpy $1.4 million. Then came Korean films FATE and THE CHASER.

STEP UP 2: EVEN STEPPIER and THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL are doing okay, considering the slight competition these days.

DAN IN REAL LIFE (another 2007 film) opened in seventh, as weakly as you would expect from a small comedy (which rarely travel well to Korea). DEATH DEFYING ACTS (2007) opened in eighth.

Korean films have 55.9 percent of the box office so far in 2008.
