Life Is Beautiful, Jump to 2nd Place, 1 Step Up from the Previous Week



The comic investigation drama, Confidential Assignment2: International, starring Hyun Bin and Yoo Haijin, enjoys the No. 1 parade without any competitors. Confidential Assignment2: International secured the top at the box office during the 2nd weekend of October with the holiday period, ranking first in the weekend box office for 5 consecutive weeks since its release. According to the Korean Box Office Information System (KOBIS) of the Korean Film Council (KOFIC) on October 11, Confidential Assignment2: International maintained its No. 1 position with a total of 303,787 viewers from October 7 to 10, including the holiday period.


The total audience for Confidential Assignment2: International, which continued to top the box office for 5 weekends after its release, is about 6.6 million. While several new Korean films are being released, Confidential Assignment2: International remains at the top of the list, but it doesn’t seem very optimistic to surpass the record set by the prequel with 7.81 million viewers as the number of moviegoers is slowing down. 


The musical film, Life is Beautiful, released on September 28, won 2nd place at the box office with 168,244 viewers over the weekend from October 7 to 9. Life is Beautiful, which started at 3rd place at the box office on the weekend of its release, recorded an increase of 10.5% from the previous week. Life is Beautiful depicts a story about a wife whose life is limited due to a terminal illness when she hits the road with her husband to find her first love, and the film features a large number of Korea's representative popular music. 


Honest Candidate 2 recorded 3rd place at the weekend box office with 135,860 weekend audiences, one step down from the previous week. The animation, Crayon Shin-chan: Shrouded in Mystery! The Flowers of Tenkazu Academy, maintained 4th place with 128,158 viewers. The horror film, Smile, which was released on October 6, ranked 5th place with 39,244 weekend moviegoers.
