The nostalgia musical film “C'est Si Bon” came in first place with weekend box office sales (February 6-February 8) of $3.94 million dollars. “C'est Si Bon” is one of two prominent releases which were launched in conjunction with the Lunar New Year but the ticket sales were lower than expected. “C'est Si Bon” takes place in the 1960s and is thus considered to be a period film which may be attracting older audiences.
“C'est Si Bon” opens for select theaters in North America on February 13.
Disney's animated hit “Big Hero 6” dropped from first place, after its third weekend in Korean theaters. The film brought in $2.52 million this weekend and has grossed $16.21 million since its opening in Korea.
The hit family drama “Ode to My Father” held on strong in third place bringing in an additional $1.66 million. “Ode to My Father” became a record-breaking film, after its eighth straight weekend in theaters. The movie is now the second highest grossing film in Korean box office history following behind the monolithic action drama “The Admiral: Roaring Currents.”
Lee Min Ho's “Gangnam Blues” took a steep drop to come in at fifth place. Since its opening, the film has grossed $15.35 million in the Korean box office. While it has fluctuated in domestic sales, there is speculation that the film will draw high ticket sales as it begins to make its way into the Chinese market.
“Gangnam Blues” opened for audiences in Los Angeles on February 6 but did not screen throughout North America, as previously anticipated.
Rounding out the top ten was “Love Forecast” starring Lee Seung Gi and Moon Chae Won with a weekend total of $190, 548.
