Eight Korean movies are among the top ten box office draws heading into the last week of August.

According to box office statistics, the films "May 18" and "D-War" have made the strongest showing.

The historical drama "May 18", which tells the story of the May 18 Gwangju Democratization Movement, took a 17-point-eight percent share of the domestic market and recaptured first place for the first time in four weeks.

The market share of "D-War" dipped to 17-point-four percent but the monster blockbuster continues to create a box office sensation.

Newly released romantic comedy "The Houseguest and My Mother" ranked third in the list. The combined market share of the eight Korean films stood at a whopping 79-point-two percent.
