[HanCinema's News] "#ALIVE" Now Third Best Performing Film of 2020 at South Korean Box Office


In its fifteenth day of availability at South Korean theaters "#ALIVE" hit another milestone, claiming the number three spot on the South Korean box office for 2020. It narrowly outperformed the political comedy "An Honest Candidate", the last decently successful movie before the COVID-19 outbreak. "As of this writing "#ALIVE" has 1,626,042 admissions versus 1,536,682 admissions for "An Honest Candidate".

"#ALIVE" now looks ahead to the weekend to see if it can try to best number two on the list, "Hitman: Agent Jun" with 2,406,232 admissions. "The Man Standing Next", the current leader with 4,750,104 is probably too much for "#ALIVE" to handle, although the upcoming "Peninsula" next week has a good chance of possibly succeeding its total.

While COVID-19 has done much to damage the South Korean box office this year South Korean films relative to their foreign counterparts have done quite well overall. The lead held by foreign films at the South Korean box office from March to May is misleading, as all admissions during that period were negligible in the face of any significant release. Consequently the three highest performing movies in the South Korean market are also the three highest performing movies overall this year.
