    Masquerade has become the fifth most popular Korean film ever recorded. According to the
    Korean Film Council's theater admissions database, Masquerade drew 272,736 on the weekend of 2-4th November, bringing its total admissions to 11,418,849. Masquerade has grabbed the fifth spot, surpassing Haeundae which drew 11.39 million in 2009. Attention is now focused on whether Masquerade will break the record set by Taegukgi which brought in 11.75 million, to ascend to the number 4 position.
    Meanwhile A Werewolf Boy was number one at the box office during its first week of release, drawing 1.3 million admissions. The film drew 420,000 on the Sunday November 4th, bringing its total so far to 1,294,473, 5 days after release. The figure is nearly twice that of Architecture 101 which took 715,580 in its first week and All About My Wife which brought in 781,253, carrying on the torch for the melodrama genre in Korean cinema.
