Directed by Jo Sung Hee and starring big names such as Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Young, “A Werewolf Boy” hit 2 million sales at box office after nine days in cinemas today morning at 9am.
According statistics provided by the Korean Film Council, “A Werewolf Boy” attracted more than 170 000 views at box office in the second week since it’s release on both the 5th and 6th November. In addition, 292 359 moviegoers watched the film on 7th November, the day before the national high school examinations - the film’s popularity is unparalleled.
“A Werewolf Boy” reached the 2 million mark 8 days sooner than “Architecture 101” and 3 days earlier than “All About My Wife”. If the success of the film at box office continues, “A Werewolf Boy” might very well rewrite Korea’s romantic movie history.
In particular, November has been traditionally a box office low in Korea; and although it’s been in cinemas for almost 2 weeks, “A Werewolf Boy” still manages to secure a 56% sales rate.
The lead actors Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Young have proven to be especially popular amongst young people. “A Werewolf Boy” is expected to break new records after the national examinations end today.
