[HanCinema's Film Review] Korean Weekend Box Office 2012.08.17 ~ 2012.08.19

 //a/p
p style=It's four straight weeks at the top for Choi Dong-hoon's "The Thieves" as it rolls over to 11,127,697 admissions. Even after fours weeks on circuit, "The Thieves" still managed to capture 26.80% of the ticket sales with the help of 621 screenings around the country. That's enough to keep the newcomers on the sidelines and just strong enough to keep Kim Joo-ho's historical comedy "The Grand Heist" in second with 823,140. There were also two new films that cracked the top five in the form of the American remake "Total Recall" and Kim Dong-weon's "R2B: Return to Base", but even these promising new entries couldn't detract from Choi and Kim's latest offerings as they dominated proceedings.

 //a/p
p style=The urban musical "Step Up Revolution" follows with 201,256, the film also had about 190 more screenings than it had last week. At number six is the Belgium animation "Sammy's Adventures 2" down one place with 146,002 (4.6%). Jang Gyoo-seong's "I Am a King" is also down, falling from three to this weekend's seven. "I Am a King" has been around for three weeks now and during that time it has accumulated just 723,960 admissions.
