Korea Box Office: ‘Furious 7’ Tops for Second Session, Local Dramas Make Soft Starts

BUSAN — UPI’s “Fast & Furious 7” remained on top in its second week at the Korean box office, accounting for 43% of weekend revenue.

With a drop of 35%, it earned $4.46 million and achieved $15.9 million from 2.13 million admissions after two weekends, according to data from the KOBIS tracking service.

Korean comedy “Twenty” remained in second after three weekends, with a week-on-week drop of 54%. The NEW release managed $2.13 million extending its cumulative total to $19.1 million from 2.71 million admissions.

Kang Je-gyu’s “Salut d’Amour” opened modestly in third, earning $2.49 million from 358,000 admissions in four days. The CJ release is not expected to exceed Kang’s previous “My Way” which scored $14.57 million in 2011.

Im Kwon-taek’s “Revivre” opened in fifth. The veteran director’s 102nd feature earned $468,000 between Thursday and Sunday, already exceeding Im’s previous feature “Hanji” which earned $331,000 in 2010.

Splitting the two was British spy thriller “Kingsman” which on Sunday exceeded 6.02 million admissions in total for a score of $45.1 million after two months. “Whiplash” dropped to sixth and now stands with a cumulative of $11.1 million.

U.S. newcomers “The Cobbler,” “The Rewrite,” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” all landed in minor places, each barely accounting for 1% of box office. Chinese animated feature “Yugo & Lala” took ninth.
