Korea Box Office: ‘Hard Hit’ Holds First Place on Second Weekend
Local film “Hard Hit” held on to top spot at the South Korean box office for the second week, keeping Hollywood holdovers and new release titles at bay.

The Busan-set action thriller scored $2.07 million in its second weekend on release, according to data from the Kobis tracking service operated by the Korean Film Council (Kofic). That was a drop of only 5% compared with its opening weekend. Since releasing on June 23, “Hard Hit” has accumulated $6.13 million.

The film accounted for 31% of nationwide box office over the weekend, implying an aggregate national total of $6.63 million between Friday and Sunday. That makes six out of the seven latest weekends that have recorded more than $6 million in gross takings.

Cruella” rebounded to second place and improved its weekend haul to $1.5 million, up from $1.18 million the previous weekend. Since its May 23 release “Cruella” has now amassed $14.6 million, making it the fourth biggest film in Korea this year.
