“The Innocent Man” Song Joon-ki’s melodrama pic “A Werewolf Boy” has dominated weekend box office for second week in a row.
The fantasy movie secured its top status by earning 1,333,851 moviegoers during the week of November 9 to 11, the Korean Film Council [KOFIC] showed Monday.
Song’s overwhelming popularity in the small screen continued on the fantasy romantic film by attracting over 3 million audiences in 11 days of its opening.
Next on the chart was Park Si-hoo’s first big screen project “Confessions of Murder,” which grabbed 726,828 audiences last weekend.
The new thriller depicts the intense conflict between serial killer Lee Du-seok [played by Park] who shot to stardom with his crime-confession novel, and detective Choi Hyung-goo [played by Jung Jae-young] who would do anything to make Lee to pay for his sin.
While “Masquerade” is heading to break another box office record after adding 174,403 admissions last weekend, Canadian SF fantasy “Upside Down” rounded out the top five with 94,304 moviegoers.
Other films in the top ten include British teenage drama “Now Is Good,” Japanese animation reboot “Jungle Emperor Leo 2,” Korean thriller “Perfect Number,” American thriller “Argo” and Pixar animation “Brave.”
