   It became the first film ever to hit the 5 million threshold this year.

   The Ryan Coogler film had stayed atop the Korean box office since it opened on Feb. 14 before being pushed to No. 3 by two new Korean releases: "The Princess and the Matchmaker" and "Little Forest." But it still remains popular, drawing more than 50,000 moviegoers a day even during weekdays. (Yonhap)
