[HanCinema's News] Women Viewers Drive Success of "Miss and Mrs. Cops" and "Inseparable Bros" At the Box Office


Over the past weekend "Miss and Mrs. Cops" has amassed 511,571 admissions. "Inseparable Bros" over the same three day period had 258,085 admissions. This places them second and fourth for overall admissions that weekend, driven largely on the strength of female viewers.

Figures released by CGV show that 73.3% of the reservations for "Miss and Mrs. Cops" and 66.2% of the reservations for "Inseparable Bros" were made by women. This compares to a 51.4% rate for the latest Avengers film, and 58.3 for Detective Pikachu.

The success of "Miss and Mrs. Cops" comes following criticism of the movie's alleged feminist ideology. Cast and crew for "Miss and Mrs. Cops" have denied any such political overtones, framing it simply as a buddy cop movie where the lead characters happen to be women.

The main crime investigated by the heroines, the release of sexual videos without the consent of the woman who appears in it, is topical given the backdrop of the 'Burning Sun' investigation. Depressingly so, actually, as the scenario was developed three years ago when revenge porn was also a known underprosecuted crime.
