Korean Films Hit New Market Share Record

2006/10/04 Source

The Korean film industry's share of the domestic market reached a record high last month.

According to a survey by CGV, the nation's top movie theater franchise, local productions dominated 82-point-seven percent of September's domestic box office sales, breaking the previous record of 81-point-eight percent set in February 2004.

Japanese films took seven-point-three percent of the domestic market, while U.S. films had a mere five-point-four percent share.

CGV attributed Korean films' strong showing to a series of locally produced box office hits, including "The Host" and "Maundy Thursday" ("Our Happy Time").
