Comedy-mystery film, "Detective K" took the number 1 spot in the Korean box office on its January 27 opening day, taking a narrow lead over Hollywood comedy film, Gulliver's Travels.
According to Korea's Nationwide Computerized Box Office Data System (KOBIS), "Detective K" had a total of 97,827 admissions taking 28.9 % of the moviegoers. Gulliver's Travels follows closely behind with 85,101 admissions and 25.2% audience share.
