′A Werewolf Boy′ Scores Again with 6 Million Audience
A Werewolf Boy is proving to be a massive success with Korean audiences.
According to the November 26 reports of the Korean Film Council′s Compiled Ticket Computer Network, A Werewolf Boy drew in 550,878 people in the three days from November 23 to 25 and stayed at the top of the box office.
During that time, the film brought in a total of 6,015,698 people, shooting past the 6 million mark in the 26 days since its premiere.
The number is much higher than the 4.1 million gathered by Architecture 101, and sets A Werewolf Boy on the throne for the biggest audience for a Korean romance film.
On its first weekend after its premiere on October 31, A Werewolf Boy immediately gathered more than 1.03 million to its screens. In its second weekend it was up to 1.33 million, and stayed strong against such big foreign films such as The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.
A rep from CJ Entertainment, the distributor for the film, said, "We believe the fairy tale story between Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Young was able to relate to the audience. The film is expected to last long, as it′s been drawing even group audiences to theaters."
A Werewolf Boy is a romance between a werewolf boy (Song Joong Ki) and a lonely girl who has turned her back to the world (Park Bo Young).
