Korean drama tentatively titled "The Servant" made its debut onto the No. 1 spot on the local box office over the weekend, pushing former winner "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" down the chart.

Figures by the Korean Box Office System (KOBIS) released on Monday showed that the new flick, released on June 2, attracted 591,687 moviegoers during the weekend of June 4 to 6.

"The Servant", starring Kim Joo-hyuk, Ryoo Seung-bum and Jo Yeo-jung, is a comedy based on the popular South Korean folktale "Chun Hyang", about what would happen if Lee Myong-ryong (played by Ryoo) turned out to be unattractive while his servant Bang Ja-jeon (played by Kim) is attractive.

Hollywood action film "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time", starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Sir Ben Kingsley, dropped a notch to second place with 376,794 admissions, while animated flick "How To Train Your Dragon" also fell one spot to third selling 294,357 tickets.

New releases "Edge of Darkness" and "The Ghost Writer" followed behind sequentially with 87,309 and 69,537 admissions, respectively.

Other movies on the top 10 included "My Dear Desperado", "The Housemaid - 2010", "Robin Hood", "Poetry" and "On the Pitch".
