[HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2014.03.21 ~ 2014.03.23 2014/03/24, "Noah" floats to the top with a torrent of tickets...
It was a spirited beginning for Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" as the crowds flooded the theatres for this biblical epic. Aronofsky's powerful, but controversial, account of Noah's Ark opened its account in first, claiming 950,864 admissions (54.2%) over 951 screens to secure the top spot. The Korean box office has been unstable these past six weeks as no film has been able to hold the highest honour for more than a weekend; with the latest dethronement being Lee Sook-yeon's "Thread of Lies" which sunk to second here with just 333,544 (17.9%). However "Noah" enjoyed the highest first place haul since early February and will hope its glory will be more than just a flash in the pan,...More

Here's a list of the top five apps (in no particular order) that one of our writers, Donna, uses frequently. You'll also get a deeper look into what it's like to live in Korea from her perspective:

You can see what the most popular movies are, watch trailers, read reviews, share movie information via your social media channels and, most importantly, reserve tickets and seats. As I mentioned in my post about 4D movies, in Korea, you get "assigned" seats in the theater. This is nice because you don't have to physically be there early to get the best seats, you can just reserve early,...More
