Restaurants and bars last year saw their lowest sales since data was first compiled in 2010.
According to Statistics Korea, restaurant and bar sales for 2018 were down 1.8 percent from the year before, even though overall consumption was up 4.2 percent.
The agency says that was mainly due to changes in dining culture. More people bought ready meals in convenience stores and there were fewer official get-togethers after work.
With restaurants having to shed staff, data show more than 46,000 people in the industry had to look for another job last year.
