Korea movies dominate box office in Feb.

2007/03/08 | 810 views | Permalink | Source

Korean films dominated the box office in February, led by Park Jin-pyo's kidnapping drama "Voice of a Murderer" that sold 3.1 million tickets, the major multiplex cinema operator CGV said. Six films in the top 10 box office rankings were Korean.

"Voice of a Murderer" appealed to local audiences by laying bare the painful experience of the parents who lost their son to a kidnapper, a story based on a real incident in which the real culprit is still at large.

On the ticket sales chart, the No. 2 slot went to "Miracle on 1st Street", with 1.9 million viewers. Other Korean films which made it to the top 10 list were "A Good Day to Have an Affair" (1.74 million), "Highway Star" (1.23 million), "Three Kims" (1 million) and "The Best Romance" (610,000).

The combined share of ticket sales by Korean films reached 67.4 percent last month, slightly up from January but still lower than the 68.9 percent recorded a year earlier.
