Three domestic films are leading at the box office here as the year draws to a close.
"Ode to My Father" has drawn 4.28 million viewers as of Sunday, just 12 days after its release, as favorable reviews spread by word of mouth and the controversy over its political disposition increases interest in the film.
It is a melodrama about a man's sacrifices for his family as he braves the coalmines of Germany and fights in the Vietnam War.
Some 1.43 million people watched the movie from Friday to Sunday, about 290,000 more than during the previous weekend. The film is expected to attract even more spectators during the New Year's holiday and winter vacation.
"My Love, Don't Cross That River" has drawn 3.55 million viewers as of Sunday, making it the most successful indie film in Korea ahead of "Begin Again", which attracted 3.43 million moviegoers.
"The film may hit the 4 million mark if it keeps drawing viewers during the New Year's holiday", CGV Art House said.
