Korean thriller "Moss" made its debut atop the local box office this weekend, stealing the top spot from the latest "Twilight Saga" installment.

Figures from the Korean Box Office System (KOBIS) released on Monday showed that "Moss", which was released on July 15, attracted 845,868 viewers during the weekend of July 16 to 18.

The movie, based on a popular online comic series which received over a total 36 million hits, stars Korean actors Jung Jae-young, Park Hae-il and Yoo Sun.

It is about how Ryoo Hae-gook, played by Park, is at a village for his father's funeral while also trying to figure out the cause of his father's death but the village people want him out of their lives.

Vampire threequel "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse", starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, dropped a notch to second place with 397,496 viewers after a mere one-week reign on the box office, while "Shrek Forever after" also slipped one spot to No. 3 with 289,638 admissions.

Korean war film "71-Into the Fire" came in fourth with 186,368 admits and "Knight & Day" fell down two slots to fifth place selling 184,249 tickets.

Other movies on the top 10 included "Man of Vendetta", "The Servant", "Barefoot Dream", "Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard" and "Splice".
