    "Frozen" re-solidifies itself at the top while "The Huntresses" melts away...  After a hectic Lunar New Year weekend "Frozen" has managed to recapture the lead and pack on the pressure as it moved on to 7.7 million admissions ($57.9M). Last week it was Hwang Dong-hyeok's "Miss Granny" that stole the show, but after the holiday rush Hwang's comedy drama was forced back a place with its 1 million haul (31.6%). These two films were the only ones in contention for gold, and together they captured over 70% of the market share. A few of the new entries ("I, Frankenstein", "Another Family", and "The Lego Movie") held their own in the middle order while "Hot Young Bloods" and "The Huntresses" fell viciously to the wrong end of the chart,...More

    "Miss Granny" leads over record-breaking Lunar New Year weekend … The Lunar New Year holiday saw around 5 million moviegoers flock to the cinema this past weekend, record-breaking foot traffic that surpassed even the last year's tussle between "Snowpiercer" and "The Terror Live". There were a number of Korean films hoping to cash in on the break (most notably Park Je-hyeon's "The Huntresses") but ultimately it was a two-horse race between "Frozen" and Hwang Dong-hyeok's "Miss Granny". Hwang's comedy drama narrowly managed to dislodge the Oscar nominee, and between them they captured over 70% of the market to lead the hectic holiday rush,...More

    "Frozen" remains solid at the top but local flicks still dominated... The Oscar-nominated animation "Frozen" held its form at the top of the pile to secure its second weekend as number one. Despite the string of popular local features Walt Disney's winter wonderland was able to pack on another 1.2 million admissions (36.2%) to advance its total tally now to 3.1 million ($22.2M). However "Miss Granny", "Hot Young Bloods", "When A Man Loves A Woman" (aka "Man In Love"), and Yang Woo-seok's popular drama "The Attorney" all followed in close formation with respectable figures to collectively capture 59.3% of the ticket sales,...More
