The event comes four days after the May 14 release of “Obsessed,” directed by Kim Dae-woo, which drew about 716,00 viewers nationwide.

The military romantic melodrama topped the box office ratings on Sunday, beating Hollywood blockbusters “Transcendence” and “Godzilla,” released on May 14 and 15 respectively.

Set in 1969 at the end of the Vietnam War, the film portrays the story of a married colonel, Kim Jin-pyeong, played by Song Seung-heon, who falls in love with his officer’s wife, Jong Ga-heun, played by In Ji-yeon.
