Korean Films Dominate Local Box Office in July

2009/08/06 Source

Korean movies grabbed a 51.1 percent share of the domestic market in July as locally-produced blockbusters such as "Haeundae" and "Chaw" drew throngs of moviegoers. This is a record monthly high since 50.1 percent in February this year, according to data released by the Korean Film Council on Wednesday.

It has been three years since Korean films last dominated the box office in July, the time when a raft of Hollywood blockbusters are usually released. In 2006, "Hanbando" and "The Host" attracted over half of Korean moviegoers.

The number of viewers rose 27.8 percent to 16.82 million from 12.84 million a month earlier, while monthly sales also posted a 35.7 percent increase to W144.4 billion (US$1=W1,224).
