Dream has been toppled from the top spot at the box office after spending four days at No.1, as The Super Mario Bros. Movie has taken its place.

On May 2nd, the Film Promotion Committee released reports indicating that The Super Mario Bros. Movie drew in 186,319 viewers on May 1st, resulting in a cumulative audience of 955,433, approaching the 1 million milestone.

In second place is Dream, starring Park Seo Joon and IU, which opened on the same day as The Super Mario Bros. Movie. The Korean film drew in 106,646 viewers with a cumulative audience of 645,510.

Upon its release, Dream managed to dethrone John Wick: Chapter 4 from the top spot. The film garnered buzz through word of mouth mainly because it’s the newest movie directed by Lee Byung Hun behind Extreme Job and features great on-screen chemistry between Park Seo Joon and IU.

Many expected Dream to restore pride in the Korean film industry by boosting its struggling performances. However, that hope did not last long as The Super Mario Bros. Movie pushed Dream down to the No.2 spot within four days of opening on April 29th. Dream needs to attract about 1.9 million to 2 million viewers to break even.

John Wick: Chapter 4 took third place with 65,020 viewers, and Suzume landed in fourth place, surpassing 5 million cumulative audiences with 38,396 viewers.
