'Fewer People Watch Korean Films, More Watch Foreign Films'

2007/06/15 | 232 views | Permalink | Source

The audience for Korean films has dropped sharply this year, while foreign films have enjoyed a resurgence.

In a Korean Film Council survey on moviegoers in Seoul from January to May, eight-point-three-seven million people watched domestic films, down 34-point-six percent from the 12-point-eight million people who enjoyed local productions during the same period last year.

Meanwhile, ten-point-three million said they watched foreign films, a 20 percent rise year-on-year.

The council says that more Korean movies were released this year but not many did well at the box office.
