South Korea Box Office | Still awaiting normalcy.

Recommended Posts

Could be review bombing but I do think it's quite possible that this movie gets a much better reception in Western countries than in East Asia. Hard to say right now. SC definitely is getting review bombed on Google's rating though so there is the potential. Or I guess the third option is that it is not review bombing as such but that Koreans specifically hate it (but that doesn't translate outside of Korea).

62k at 20:00. Probably 66-67k final. CGV 86% is awful unless there is review bombing.

I see some mixed reviews from some Chinese audiences on Weibo - with ticket stubs; these Chinese are staying overseas in Singapore and South Korea. 
 

might have some disconnect between East vs West perception; but we need to see more reviews to see how it goes.

Just 63K final. OD 130-135K. Poor opening.

It has 2 weekends with limited competiton though. Let's see how legs work out; if the reviews are really getting bombed then actual WoM might be better? Lol.

 

Edit: also confirms your suspicion on the presales; too much discount inflating presales which doesnt neccessary translate to actual demand on OD.

I think there may be no late shows due to CoVID, that would lower PSm as well. It added nothing in last 3 hours which is weird.

Do movies usually open on Wednesday there? I would expect midweek late nights to be pretty limited

 

how much did BW open to? Also on a Wednesday?

 

Singapore seems to be doing okay. We will see how Hong Kong behaves tomorrow - you can track attendance via Wmoov box office for HK.

Yes WED start is common, just that I think there are no late night shows which get most admits during weekdays in India, I suppose would be same in KOR. 

 

BW was just night shows on WED. $1.73M.

Hong Kong also kinda hate this due to China. Haha.  At least based on the 2 reviews site that I am tracking in HK.

 

Friday increase in HK kinda muted.

 

MCU also bridging the R/S between HK and China. Haha.
