Much-hyped Korean erotic thriller "The Housemaid" made a successful debut atop the local box office over the weekend, pulling down former winner "Iron Man 2" from the top spot.

Estimates by the Korean Box Office System (KOBIS) released on Monday indicated that "Housemaid," released on May 13, sold 655,681 tickets during the weekend of May 14 to 16.

"Housemaid" is a remake of the Korean classic of the same name by the late director Kim Ki-young. The modern adaptation, helmed by Im Sang-soo starring Jeon Do-youn, Lee Jung-jae and Yoon Yeo-jung, is about a young maid who is hired as a housemaid for a wealthy couple and starts having an affair with the husband.

Newly released Hollywood action flick "Robin Hood," starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, claimed second place on the chart with 471,609 admits, while previous winner "Iron Man 2" dropped two spots to round out the top three movies selling 324,198 tickets this week.

Meanwhile, Korean drama "Blades of Blood" brought in 97,022 admissions to rank in fourth, followed sequentially by "Korea 1%" with 35,155 tickets sold.

Other movies on the top 10 include "Poetry," "A Long Visit," "Sergeant Keroro The Super Duper Movie 5: Adventure in Space Time Island" and "The Blind Side."
