    Wow less than a thousand between the two. Really tough! Proud of Love Forecast. There is no shame in being #2 to that movie, it’s still huge. Love Forecast seems to be holding up well.

    It’s so good enough. I really don’t take the ranking that much important although it holds a part to make the buzz on media. Since at the end of the day, the genre of Love Forecast and Ode to My Father are different, their targets on viewers are different too. The most important here is Love Forecast just keeps remaining its own way, it’s so enough to achieve its goals more and more huge, such as 1st goal is 1.9 M viewers, then 3M viewers, then more to higher goals such as 5M viewers to “force” Seung Gi to ride the dropped towers with 50 fans (evil but also angel LOL) and and then then 5M+ viewers to make Love Forecaste become the most romcom movie in the history of Korean movie industry. Step by step and only for Love Forecasr, it’s my focus when looking in box office news.

      Oh, although it’s a bit less than OTMF about viewers but anyway, Love Forecast’s sales is higher than Ode to My Father ^^

      Yeah, ranking isn’t that important, but to stay stable and gain audience. This is a romcom and against tough competition so it’s doing really well. The movies coming out aren’t really aimed at the same audience so hopefully it continues to have it’s niche in the coming weeks.

    Just wonder why both OTMF and LF is distributed by CJ E&M but LF’s number of screen are always less than OTMF’s?

    He, now it’s 157,438 vs. 157,302. The gap is just 136 tickets. So great!

    Hey guys Glad to see the movie doing well but how about the reviews? do people like it?

    Considering it a romantic comedy, people seem to love. It. Mostly, it’s quite realistic and reflects today’s love and people said they could easily empathize. So far, a lot people said it’s fun. That is good.

    Happy Happy Happy! ! !
    By the way, a friend flew over to Seoul to watch the movie. She watched it six times! She said audience enjoyed the movie and was laughing at the funny scenes. She went to a first showing in the morning and saw quite a few young guys in the audience. And couples too.

      The guys could have gone for MCW. She’s so pretty n charming. I like her in BL and fell in love with her in Running Man 😍, and I’m an ahjumma! 😅 If I were a guy, I would be an avid fan! 🙌🙆
      And who doesn’t love our Seunggi?

    Hope someone can translate some reviews because I’ve just read a review in English but it’s not good, the writer seems to biased, he constantly compares LF to other movies than judge it by its own merit. It would be nice if there are good reviews in English.

    • A New Day says:

      To tell you the truth, I don’t trust reviews, esp. in this case where biases and prejudices are the norm. Since Love Forecast has a lot of people voting for it (by buying movie tickets), I think the general responses are very good. I look forward to watching it myself and form my own opinion, ha ha ha.

    • mel says:

      That review was too biased towards his costar honestly. And he didn’t even like her much, but found her hot. So yeah, the box office is good so that’s all we need to know
