It’s a metrosexual box office weekend
The movie Sook-myeong (“Destiny,” or “Fate”) opened this weekend, and with two of Hallyu’s prettiest pretty-boys headlining — Kwon Sang Woo and Song Seung Heon, that is — it’s well on its way to claiming the weekend box office.
The movie (also starring Ji Sung and Kim In Kwon) easily took the top slot in advance ticket sales; (distant) second place will likely fall to the American dance cheesefest Step Up 2.
The plot is said to center around the “misunderstandings, betrayal, and sorrow” between the four main characters and friends. But with such a density of heartthrobs onscreen, I’m sure the theatergoers are really going for the plot.
