[HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2013.05.10 ~ 2013.05.12 2013/05/13,
"Iron Man 3" once again defended its place at the top of the Korean box office, but this time there were a few new entries to help spread the wealth around. Marvel's metal magician added 1,039,876 (58.22%) admissions to its reign, moving it onto a total ticket count of 7.5M and to second in the list of Korea's highest grossing films of the year.

[HanCinema's Film Talk] Iron Man, Iron Curtain, and Christmas Cake. 2013/05/11,
Marvel's metal magician is in its third week in Korea and fans are still throwing money at the screen to catch Tony Stark's latest outing. The previous "Iron Man" films performed admirably at the Korean box office (each claiming around 4.5 million admissions), and this latest instalment is fast approaching 7 million admissions and has yet to see any challengers to its iron crown. It's no real surprise that the film has dominated proceedings, especially considering the massive success of "The Avengers" last year, which snatched 7 million tickets itself in Korea alone. "Iron Man 3" has also been heavily marketing and promoted in Korea.

Tony Stark may be under some psychological pressure in his third outing but his Korean fans continued to storm the cinemas in support. "Iron Man 3" once again dominated proceedings over this past weekend, adding 1,865,121 (75%) admissions and bringing its total tally now to almost six million. That places Marvel's blockbuster as the third highest grossing release in Korea for 2013; just behind "The Berlin File" (7.1 Million), which it will surely surpass in the coming week. There were only three new entries that made the top grade this past weekend: Lee Jong-pil's "The Singing Contest, a re-release of "Finding Nemo 3D", and the Japanese animation "One Stormy Night",...More
