2015 puts another mark as it starts with a strong battle in the Box Office.
We’ve got a couple of movies burning up the box office these days, this would indicate we’re in movie season. The big names of recent weeks have been Kim Woo Bin’s “The Con Artists”, Lee Min Ho’s “Gangnam 1970”, Lee Seung Gi and Moon Chae Won`s “Love Forecast” but surprisingly the King turns out to be the once in a blue moon blockbuster “Ode to My Father”.
It is interesting to see the “Heirs” leads facing against each other again but this time in a battle with their movies. And the victory (once again) goes to Lee Min Ho, as “Gangnam Blues” even managed to briefly dethrone six-week leader “Ode to My Father” with its opening. Another movie that it is getting a buzz it’s the sweet romantic comedy “Love Forecast”. Its popularity is because of the chemistry between Lee Seung Gi and Moon Chae Won, and this time around it`s him that is chasing after her – remember “Brilliant Legacy”, maybe its karma.
