BEST-SELLING CHINESE MOVIESNot even Parasite can beat Donnie Yen – only Donnie Yen can. The action legend's Ip Man series finale narrowly edged out his action comedy Enter the Fat Dragon to become our best-selling film of 2020. Sammi Cheng's sisterhood drama Fagara, Taiwan horror Detention and the 4K restored Blu-ray of Hou Hsiao Hsien's Flowers of Shanghai round out the top five Chinese-language films. Hong Kong crime dramas with usual suspects Louis Koo and Nick Cheung claim four spots, and Ching Siu Tung's period fantasy Jade Dynasty makes the top-ten cut thanks to the fan-support boost for lead actor Xiao Zhan.

BEST-SELLING KOREAN MOVIESAs expected, Bong Joon Ho's Oscar-winning Parasite was the top-selling Korean film of 2020. Yoona and Jo Jung Suk's disaster action comedy EXIT and the all-star disaster action thriller Ashfall follow in second and third place. Two of Crash Landing on You star Hyun Bin's films – 2018's The Negotiation and 2017's Confidential Assignment – return to the top sellers. Blockbuster police comedy Extreme Job and Lee Young Ae's silver-screen comeback Bring Me Home are also in the top ten, along with the award-winning films Kim Ji Young, Born 1982 and The Man Standing Next.

BEST-SELLING JAPANESE MOVIESShinkai Makoto's animated fantasy Weathering With You easily came in first among Japanese films, and his previous blockbuster Your Name continued to chart high. Two other anime classics appear in the top ten: Akira got shiny new Blu-ray releases, and Evangelion 1.11 is likely because of anticipation for the final Rebuild of Evangelion entry. In a year when we all needed some miso soup for the soul, the two Midnight Diner films quietly came in second and third ahead of the Kimura Takuya-led Higashino Keigo adaptation Masquerade Hotel, Ninagawa Mika's Dazai Osamu biopic No Longer Human and the latest Sadako horror.
