The black comedy earned 4.05 billion yen in ticket sales as of last week, since its release in early January in the island country, the film's distributor CJ E&M said on Monday.
"Parasite" has become the highest-grossing Korean film in Japan, breaking the previous record of 3 billion yen set by "A Moment to Remember", the 2004 Korean tearjerker about a young couple's enduring love, which was released there the following year.
"Parasite" immediately swept the Japanese box office after it won four Oscars -- best picture, best director, best original screenplay and best international feature -- at this year's Academy Awards last month.
