Latest Box Office for Japanese Films in Korea
Wed Dec 22 08:34:28 EST 1999
On its debut week, Nakata Hideo's Japanese version of RING had only 33,000
attendees in Seoul. Meanwhile, on its fourth week of release, attendance
for Iwai Shunji's LOVE LETTER increased by 50% to 150,000 (in Seoul).
Korean psycho-thriller TELL ME SOMETHING, released one week prior to Iwai's
1995 film, is fizzling out with just 30,000 attendees (in Seoul) in its
fifth week. Which means that a wonderful little film called ATTACK THE GAS
STATION! will actually hold the #2 slot at this year's Korean box office
over SWIRI, #3 overall after THE MUMMY (USA). And LOVE LETTER is now
OFFICIALLY in the top ten box office of the year for all commercial releases
and still going strong. Fingers crossed that Shu Kei and Iwai will make a
lot of money out of APRIL STORY.
