Film "Love So Divine" Tops Oricon Chart of Japan

2006/02/03 Source

The popularity of actor kwon Sang-woo, a hallyu star, is rising by the day.

According to data released by the Oricon Chart of Japan on Feb. 1, the collector's DVD edition of the film "Love So Divine" (2004) starring Kwon topped Oricon's daily DVD chart in its general division. The film's outstanding performance is noteworthy in that it swept the Oricon Chart only one day after the DVD was released on Feb. 1.

The film's regular DVD edition that was also released the same day ranked seventh on the chart, attesting to the hallyu star's great popularity. Such an impressive performance by Kwon in Japan also bodes well for the prospects of the film "Running Wild" (2005), starring Kwon and Yoo Ji-tae, scheduled for release in Japan on Feb. 11.

In addition, the DVD of the film "Marathon" (2005), starring Cho Seung-woo, was released on Jan. 27 and finished 19th on the Oricon monthly DVD chart, showing excellent overall prospects for Korean films in Japan.

"Love So Divine", starring Kwon and Ha Ji-won, earned a favorable response from Japanese fans when it was released at Japanese theaters in July of last year.
