The majority of movies shown at the nation's theaters are either domestic or American.

The Korean Film Council on Wednesday said its recent report showed three-fourths of 77 movies screened in domestic theaters in the first quarter were either domestic or American productions.

In Seoul, 96 percent of moviegoers went to see domestic or American movies.

Among the small minority of films from other nations, five were Chinese, six European and five Japanese.

The domestic blockbuster "The King and the Clown", recently ended its theatrical run after breaking the nation's all-time box office record with 12.3 million viewers.
