Nicolas Cage's KNOWING was really the top film in Korea last weekend? Really? That's kind of depressing. And with 462,254 admissions (3 billion won)?
Also depressing is the big opening of MY GIRLFRIEND IS AN AGENT (7-Geup Gongmuwon). But considering it opened on "just" 225 screens, I guess the theater owners were smelling a dog.
In general, a really bad week for Korean movies. Just three in the top-10, with SHADOW KILL (Geurimja Salin) in No. 2, MY GIRLFIREND IS AN AGENT in No. 7 and WHY ARE YOU HERE IN OUR HOUSE? (Uri Jibe Wae Wassni) in No. 8. Overall, the Korean share of the box office has fallen to 44.6 percent.
Although in the absence of Korean films, it was not all Hollywood -- BANLIEUE 13: ULTIMATUM from France was third and THE LEGEND OF IP MAN from Hong Kong was in fifth.
