Korea Weekend Box Office - Oct. 31-Nov. 2

A boring weekend at the box office, with no films doing terribly well. MY WIFE GOT MARRIED was No. 1 for the second week in a row and how now topped the 1-million-admissions mark. EAGLE EYE has topped 2 million. Only two Korean films in the top 10 (albeit one is the No. 1 movie).

Hopefully James Bond can shake things up next weekend, when QUANTUM OF SOLACE is released early.

In other box office news... the Joy Division movie CONTROL opened way down in 25th, with less than $5,000. Bong Joon-ho's TOKYO! was 15th, and how now made $136,000 since opening a couple of weeks ago. Moon So-ri's SAGWA/APOLOGY was in 21, and has now made $283,000. Kim Ki-duk's BIMONG is nearly finished, with $455,000.

(Note: currently using 1,260 won/dollar. But I am sure that will keep changing, hour by hour).
