    [Entertainment News Station] "The Thieves" caught in issue for summing up audience



    There is an issue about the new record made by "The Thieves".

    Show Box revealed on the 2nd, "In the company standards, the movie went over 13,020,393 and beat "The Host" of 13,019,740 in 2006". However, according to the Korean Films Commission, "The Thieves" gathered a number of 12,973,390 until the 2nd. If this is true, "The Thieves" hasn't jumped over "The Host" yet. This means Show Box has included the numbers from the theaters that haven't signed in with the KFC. KFC claims, "99.9% of all theaters in Korea have been signed in with KFC from the year 2012 onwards". Considering that the theaters not included are very low, the issue with "The Thieves" can only be brought up. It has also bought unfavorable claims that it takes over more than 100 theaters during the week when there is not many audiences.

    'Thieves' makes off with S. Korean box office record


    image

    SEOUL - A casino heist movie that owes much to Steven Soderbergh's "Ocean's" series has become the highest-grossing South Korean film in history, taking in more than $80 million at the domestic box office.

    As of Thursday the film, shot in Macau and bringing together some of the biggest stars in the Korean film industry, had been seen by 13 million moviegoers and earned 93.6 billion won ($84 million), its distributor Showbox said.

    These figures surpass the previous all-time attendance and earnings record, both held by the 2006 horror blockbuster "The Host".

    "The Thieves" follows the trail of a team of Korean and Chinese thieves plotting to steal a $20 million diamond necklace from a casino safe in Macau.

    The stellar cast includes the current king of the South Korean box office Kim Yun-Seok, as well as a host of other top names including Kim Hye-Soo, Kim Soo-Hyun and Gianna Jun.

    Shot in a mixture of Cantonese and Korean, it has already been released in Hong Kong, and distribution rights have been sold to eight other Asian markets, including China, Indonesia and Thailand.

    A US release is scheduled for next week, Showbox said.

    After 70 days in domestic theatres, and with tickets still selling well, the film has a chance to topple James Cameron's Hollywood blockbuster "Avatar" from its spot atop South Korea's all-time box office list including foreign films.

    "Avatar" was seen by 13.6 million Korean moviegoers.

    Kim Soo hyun's name wasn't on the list of celebrities going to Busan for BIFF... I hope they just forgot to include his name in it... It's been so long since I've seen a glimpse of Soo hyun... it wouldn't hurt if he'd just show up his face once and go home

    BIFF: Must-visit Busan Restaurants You Saw in Korean Films


    Busan has become one of the favorite spots for Korean filmmakers and musicians. image

    Not to mention its distinctive regional dialect and the beautiful sea bay area, but the straightforward attitude and vibrant energy of Busan people add something special to films and songs: Yoon Je-kyoon's "Haeundae" (2009), Park Chan-wook's "Oldboy" (2006), Choi Dong-hoon's "The Thieves" (2012) and reggae singing duo Haha&Skull's "Busan Vacance."

    People know that these films and songs are based in Busan but can anyone name the spot from which the fried dumpling that Choi Min-shik ate for 15 years was ordered? Or where actor Kim Soo-hyun gets flirted with a man? Discover that location and more about the scenes below and navigate the city's culinary offerings by both fun and flavor.

    Actor Choi Dong-hoon's "The Thieves" is the top grossing homegrown film of all time, passing numerous records set by "The Host" (206) and "Haeundae" (2009), the heist movie marked actress Jun Ji-hyun's whirlwind return to the screen and proved the power of the new rising actor, Kim Soo-hyun.

    These two encounter an unexpected event in a bar, where they had plotted to take an ID card from security guard's pocket to sneak into a building. While Jun waits for the man's approach, Kim gets caught off his guard by getting flirted by the security.

    The scene makes the audience burst into their laughter by seeing Kim being compelled to kiss a man to steal the card.

    Many thought the scene was shot in Macao, but the production firm later revealed that the bar is located in Busan, Korea.

    The Thieves tops all-time domestic box office
    by girlfriday | October 3, 2012 | 49 Comments

    image

    I didn’t know if it would happen despite an explosive start, but on October 2, caper filmThe Thieves finally broke out into the front of the pack, topping the all-time Korean domestic box office chart at number one. The Host has held the top spot since 2006, with a grand total of 13,019,740 tickets sold over 106 days in theaters. But in just 70 days, The Thieves clocked in 13,020,393 tickets to claim the lead.

    Along with the congratulatory news, there’s also an interesting bit of backlash about how the distributors for big films like this one are essentially buying the audience by taking up the lion’s share of screens in every theater, which is an argument I find rather silly. Movies are a distribution game, which means by its very nature, you throw an insane amount of money at it to buy your audience through publicity and access. The little indie film that finds its own audience despite that is definitely to be lauded, for sure, but arguing that money shouldn’t factor into a money game is kinda moot.

    One thing that makes the Korean box office such a clean game, in fact, is that everything is counted by the number of tickets, rather than profit. In Hollywood there’s no clean measure for all-time box office, so I’m a big fan of counting the number bodies you actually get into a theater, rather than accounting for the price difference between a ticket in Seoul and in the countryside, or the price of a ticket in 1960 versus now. There’s a lot to be said for knowing that first place means first place without a conversion formula involved.

    The record for highest ticket sales in international films is still held by Avatar, which sold over 13.6 million tickets in Korea. That’s a lot of tickets to sell if The Thieves wants to be an all-chart topper, though I suppose that’s the thing about breaking records — as soon as you break one, the next milepost is automatically your next goal.

    There were already kisses and piggybacks from the cast when the film hit 10 million, but I think overthrowing the No. 1 spot calls for something bigger. When’s Lee Jung-jae going to be handing out kisses? I think I know a few people who’d buy a ticket or three hundred for that.

    Ha ha. what a funny scene.  I guess that's the reason why "THieves" was such a huge hit.  It's not such action, it's comedy as well.

    And so sorry to hear the Kim Soo Hyun is not attending the Busan event.  I hoped to feast on more gorgeous pictures.

    @jasmine27... He was not present during the red carpet yesterday and his name is not included in the Thieves Cast that would be present in the BIFF... although the news articles says he'd be there for the screening of the movie and a fan meeting in the BIFF later this evening

    Kim Soo Hyun's interview with Nikkan Sports magazine
    Translated by jerebtang

    Q. What did you feel when you received the drama script and deeply read about 'Lee Hwon' character, at the very beginning?

    A. I am very excited at that moment. Actually, 'Lee Hwon' is a sharp and an upright person. When I further read about his character, I find his inner side is very painful. That's why I wanted to try out this challenging role.


    Q. Did you feel burdened during that very moment?

    A. Before filming "The Moon Embracing the Sun", I haven't encountered such important situation. I am lacking of such experience. In addition, this is my first time in challenging myself to be in a historical drama. I am feel pressurized. Besides that, I am filming with other co-stars who are experienced seniors and mentors. I am wondering whether my acting can win out and handle such important character, it's very worrying.


    Q. Do you feel any difference when you were filming "Dream High"?

    A. When I was filming "Dream High", I was with a group of people who are same age range as me. I was relying on the superiority of the work itself. Furthermore, I was like having fun while I was filming the drama. But this time, it is totally different. I have a tough time in filming the drama.


    Q. What is the most painful thing when you were filming your first ever historical drama?

    A. 'Lee Hwon' character who is in this drama always revolved around in between the grand empress and the political government, since he is at the very young age. Basically, his physique is not very well. During this time, 'Lee Hwon' loses "Yeon Woo". Fortunately, 'Lee Hwon' is a teenage person. His cold body and mind are revived when he meet "Yeon Woo" again.

    As predicted, he can run off again in full determination. (Laugh)


    Q. This drama is a sad romance story. Have you tried to feel the sadness and sorrows using your inner heart?

    A. It is not only me who has such feelings, but all other actors and actresses as well. We all immersed ourselves in the drama scripts which revolved about a sad romance story. I am only need to stand in front of the camera, and I will think myself as "Lee Hwon".
