“Happy Death Day” remained in second, earning $2.2 million between Friday and Sunday for a total of $7.62 million after two weekends on release. “Thor: Ragnarok” slipped to third from the previous week’s top spot, with a drop of 65%. The Disney release earned $1.28 million for a total of $33.9 million after four weekends. The three non-Korean films accounted for 74% of the total weekend box office altogether.

Another Wednesday opener, Lotte Entertainment’s “Room No. 7” debuted in fourth place. The comedy drama about a worker who finds a corpse and his boss who tries to sell the venue to cover up the incident, earned a five-day total of $1.92 million. Directed by Lee Yong-seung, “No. 7” was the opening film of this year’s Bucheon fantasy festival.

Korean duo, “The Bros” and “The Outlaws” slipped to fifth and sixth, respectively. Megabox’s “Bros” earned $514,000 for a total of $10.5 million after three weekends. Megabox and Kiwi Media Group’s “Outlaws” earned $499,000 and extended its seven-weekend total to $50.9 million.
