I like incremental successes more than wildly unexpected wins, mostly because it feels better earned as well as more sustainable. It’s heading into the 4th week on the big screen for winter rom-com movie Today’s Love (Love Forecast) starring Lee Seung Gi and Moon Chae Won. It’s brought in over US 13 million to date and managed to hold onto a 5th place position on the third week, making the media pundits declare that the movie is a solid success for the two young leads.
The movie will probably drop out of the top 10 by the 6th week or so and likely end up taking home about US 15-16 million total which isn’t bad at all for a lightweight rom-com that wasn’t particularly well-reviewed. I love Seung Gi and have a soft spot for Chae Won so it’s been a fun month of January watching them promote the heck out of this movie all over Korea. I wouldn’t mind if they did another movie or drama since the chemistry is clearly there, not to mention they appear to really have fun working together.
