Box Office 'King' Creates 8,200 Jobs

2006/03/10 | Permalink | Source

The nation's all-time box office leader "The King and the Clown" has created nearly 8,200 jobs during its record-breaking run.

The Korea Culture and Tourism Policy Institute on Friday said its study showed the low-budget historical comedy generated 4,800 jobs in screening and 3,400 jobs in food concessions.

The film on Sunday broke the all-time record by selling 11.75 million tickets over its two-month run.

Researcher Choi Jong-il, who conducted the study, said the film created the same number of jobs as the sale of 1.26 million units of a mobile phone model.

With a production and marketing budget of just 6.5 billion won, the blockbuster has raked in an estimated 82.2 billion won in box office revenue and 33.8 billion won in concessions.
