A remake of the Hong Kong crime thriller "Drug War" (2012) by Johnnie To, the new film tells the story of the unlikely partnership between police anti-drug unit officer Won-ho and low-level drug dealer and informant Rak as they take down a massive Seoul-based international drug cartel to which the latter once belonged.

The R-rated American superhero film "Deadpool 2" added 230,614 to its domestic total of 3.61 million tickets sold in its third weekend at the box office.

Disney and Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" remained strong at No. 3, with 71,690 admissions in its sixth weekend. This new number brought the movie's cumulative total to 11.136 million in the country.

The U.S. horror movie "Truth or Dare" and Sony's half-animated/half-life-action feature "Peter Rabbit" took the fourth and fifth spots, selling 58,497 and 46,044 tickets, respectively.
