Patrick Frater Asia Bureau Chief Two Hollywood new releases, “A Haunting in Venice” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutant Mayhem” failed to make much of an impression on the South Korean box office in their opening weekend.

Instead, local fantasy drama “Sleep” headed the chart for a second time. “Sleep” earned $2.38 million in its second weekend, a creditably modest 20% weekend-on-weekend decline, according to data from Kobis, the tracking service operated by the Korean Film Council (Kofic).

Its market share held up decently too, at 39%. After 12 days in Korean cinemas the Cannes title has earned $7.67 million. But the competition was weak. “A Haunting in Venice” was the week’s top new release, but it failed to reach the $1 million mark.

Between Friday and Sunday, it earned $676,000 and over its opening five days made $980,000). The nationwide box office aggregate was the second weakest weekend of 2023, coming in at a flimsy $6.15 million.
