Local gang thriller THE OUTLAWS scored its second first place finish in its third week as it welcomed another 787,000 viewers (USD 5.94 million), a drop of just 17%, for a stellar running total of 4.97 million spectators (USD 36.24 million).
Hollywood disaster film Geostrom experienced a subdued start in second with 606,000 entries (USD 4.64 million) and 695,000 tickets (USD 5.27 million) sold in four days.
LEE Won-tae’s period drama Man of Will with CHO Jin-woong and SONG Seung-heon had a lackluster debut in third with 201,000 spectators (USD 1.42 million) and 260,000 seats filled (USD 1.8 million) since Thursday.

Darren Aronofsky’s mother!, despite a gala berth at the Busan International Film Festival, was a non-starter in 11th place, with just 22,000 entries (USD 160,000) during its debut, and 31,000 (USD 220,000) in four days.
Things are set to heat up as Thor: Ragnarok enters the market place, where it is poised for a big debut this weekend.
