Hollywood action film "Inception" successfully bowed into the Korean box office at No. 1 over the weekend, taking the top spot from Korean thriller "Moss".

The Korean Box Office System (KOBIS) revealed on Monday that "Inception", which premiered in local theaters on July 21, brought in 796,854 moviegoers during the weekend of July 23 to 25.

The crime thriller, written, produced and helmed by famed director Christopher Nolan, is about how Dom Cobb (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) enters people's dreams to obtain inaccessible information. It also stars actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page and Tom Hardy.

"Moss", based on a popular online comic in Korea, slipped one slot to No. 2 with 493,946 admissions and Disney picture "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", starring Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel, entered the chart in third place with 218,865 admits.

Newly released Korean flick "Heart is... 2" and animated picture "Detective Conan: The Lost Ship in the Sky" also opened in theaters, coming in at fourth and fifth place selling 154,824 and 145,804 tickets, respectively.

Other movies on the top 10 were "Shrek Forever After", "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse", "Knight & Day", "71-Into the Fire" and "Man of Vendetta".
