Richard Curtis's romantic comedy "About Time" and James Wan's supernatural horror "Insidious: Chapter 2" kept the local flicks at bay with a one-two finish for the away team. "About Time" claimed 477,267 (29.5%) admissions over 568 screens to secure the top spot while Wan's sequel attracted 225,734 (13.2%) filmgoers to his highly profitable horror franchise.

"11 AM" claimed 377,165 (21.3%) over 512 screens to outplay last week's number one – Kwak Gyeong-taek's "Friends 2" – as well as the not-so-hot "Hunger Games" sequel "Catching Fire". Times are tough at the moment at the Korean box office, and so while the world (the U.S. in particular) is burning up over the Susan Collins's second novel adaptation, the hermit kingdom has withdrawn and spread it limited wealth over just a few worthy features...More
