Modes of transportation have become the biggest box office winners in South Korea two years running. This summer’s A Taxi Driver has crossed the 12 million moviegoer threshold and is officially the 10th highest grossing Korean movie of all time, pushing Taegukgi down to the 11th spot. It’s probably slowed down to the point that it may not surpass 9th place The King and the Clown but it’s still a remarkable achievement, and nearly double the box office or more highly promoted Battleship Island with 6.5 million views. A Taxi Driver may retain the 2017 box office crown as last summer’s Train to Busan with 11.5 million viewers went on to be the year’s highest grossing movie and is now in the 12th spot. Congrats to A Taxi Driver and cast Song Kang Ho, Yoo Hae Jin, Ryu Jun Yeol, and Thomas Kretschmann. Next year hopefully there will be a top grossing airplane movie to complete the triumvirate of planes, trains, and automobiles.
