2022 was a pretty good year for K-dramas but I didn’t pay as much attention to the box office. It was fully business as usual in South Korea with the audiences being able to go to the theater and no occupancy limitations. There are a bunch of big names coming in with high profile movies in 2023 and there was a vote among all the Korean entertainment reporters on who they think will be the most reliable deliverer of box office success in this new year. Topping the vote is Park Seo Joon, followed by Ha Jung Woo, then Song Joong Ki, Lee Byung Hun, and Yoo Ah In rounding out the top five. I’ll remember this vote and list come year end and check back to see if these insiders predictions came true.
