Korea box office: ‘Confidential Assignment 2’ wins the weekend

The action-comedy film “Assignment Confidential 2: International” topped the South Korean box office for the fourth weekend in a row. Its enduring success came despite a slew of new releases aimed at capturing National Foundation Day holiday weekend traffic.

Between Friday and Sunday, “Confidential Assignment 2” grossed $2.19 million from 304,000 tickets sold and a 29% market share. Weekend earnings bring it to a cumulative $43.3 million since its release on September 7, 2022.

It is only the fourth film this year to break the six million viewers mark and the third Korean film to do so, after “The Roundup” (12.7 million) and “Hansan: Rising Dragon” (7.26 million). ).

Korean comedy “Honest Candidate 2” opened in second place with $1.74 million over the weekend and $2.69 million over the five days since its release on Wednesday.

The Korean musical, “Life is Beautiful” ranked third. It earned $1.07 million over the weekend and $1.75 million over its first seven days.

Two other new titles, both animated, made it to the top five. Japan’s “Crayon Shin-chan”: School Mystery! The Splendid Tenkasu Mystery” earned 899,000 over the weekend and $1.04 million over five days. Korean-produced “Hello Carbot the Movie: The Secret of the Suspicious Magic Troupe” grossed $538,000 over the weekend and $612,000 over five days.

Monday is a public holiday in South Korea, which means there could be continued improvement at the box office. (There are two more holidays on October 9 and 10). But the latter did little to revive the fortunes of theaters.

Last weekend it delivered $7.71 million domestically, compared to last week’s non-holiday session, worth $7.21 million.

With the exception of the Chuseok holiday in mid-September, the Korean box office has once again settled in the range of $7-10 million per weekend since the beginning of August. That followed a much stronger three months after the end of most COVID restrictions in early May.

The rush of newcomers had the effect of sidelining two recent releases, the original “Avatar” reboot and the Korean thriller “Project Wolf Hunting.” “Avatar” handled $697,000 over the weekend for a current launch total of $2.30 million. “Project Wolf Hunting” fell from second to seventh place with a weekend score of $270,000. He now has a 12-day jackpot of $3.07 million.
