According to the Korean Films Commission on the 5th, "Planet of Snail" gathered 916 audiences in 39 theaters all around the country on the 4th, adding up to a total of 10,933 audiences and landing on the 7th place of the Box Office.
Having been released on the 22nd last month, "Planet of Snail" traveled through word-of-mouth. Despite the fact that it was shown in very few theaters, group viewing in schools, charity events and companies have been increasing and individuals like director Lee Seong-Gyou, novelist Kim Tak-hwan, comedian Nam Hee-seok and others have been promoting this documentary on their Twitters and such.
"Planet of Snail" is about Yeong-chan, a deaf and blind who sees and listens to the world with the tips of his fingers and Soon-ho who is smaller than usual people due to his spinal symptoms but has a heart like the ocean. For the first time in Korean movies, the original version and the commentary version with Kim Chang-wan is both being shown in theaters.
"Talking Architect", a human documentary about last few journeys of the late Chung Guyon also entered the top 10 Box Office.
