'Yeochinso - Windstruck' has jumped over a record 'ToeGuk Ki: Brotherhood of war's box-office (190 million yen, 130,000 people), the premier position of existing Korean movie box-office during the first weekend released in Japan, and the second rank 'JSA - Joint Security Area"(160 million yen, 106,000 people) lightly.

'Yeochinso - Windstruck' that secured the most screens amid successive Korean movies with 302 screens across entire Japan, is continuing selling-out in the greater part of movie theaters including multiplex movie theaters. In particular, thanks to Hanryu gale that hit Japan hard, pairs show up in large numbers.

An official of Warner Japan, the movie's distribution firm, said: As high-school girls and university students, the movie's main audience, multiply along with the winter vocation, 'Yeochinso' would jump over 'seri's 1.8 billion yen also easily, the highest box-office record amid successive Korean movies.

The Romantic Comedy that pairs a spunky policewoman with a sweet teacher stars Jun Ji-hyun, the actress from the hit comedy "Yopgijogin Kunyo (My Sassy Girl)".
