The market share held by Korean films was found to have slid to the 40-percent level last month.

According to the Korean Film Council on Monday, Korean movies' market share stood at 40-point-six percent last month compared to 62-point-six percent in October. The number of moviegoers stood at ten million 500-thousand last month, while total revenues stood at around 77 billion won.

However, the council added that a record was posted in overall ticket sales in November compared to the same month in previous years, noting that the Hollywood blockbuster "2012" had drawn more than four-point-three million viewers.

Five Korean films, including "Good Morning President" and "White Night", were among the top ten movies in terms of ticket sales.
