According to figures released by the Korean Film Council, "A Resistance" achieved 35,150 admissions on March 5th for a grand total of 870,315 admissions. It is currently at the top of the box office, although this position is unlikely to be maintained with the release of Captain Marvel.
"A Resistance" deals with resistance hero Yu Gwan-sun who rebelled against the Japanese Occupation from jail on March 1st, 2019. Korea recently celebrated the centennial of that independence movement.
"Svaha: The Sixth Finger" ranks close behind with 33,640 admissions for a grand total of 2,2219,339 admissions. "Extreme Job" is in third with 25,684 admissions for a grand total of 16,082,377 admissions.
