Korean moviegoers plunge in March: report

The number of Korean moviegoers plunged last month to its lowest level in 10 months, down 18 percent year-on-year, a local report said Tuesday.

Some 7.84 million people went to the movies last month, according to CJ CGV, the country’s largest cinema operator. A total of 9.95 million people went to the movies in March last year.

Domestic movies accounted for 37.9 percent of the cinema market last month, also plunging by 8.4 percentage points from the same period last year.

None of the domestic or foreign movies released in March managed to draw an audience of more than 1 million, considered a yardstick for a local box office hit.Yonhap
