South Korea

In 2014 South Korea became, on a per capita basis, the highest-attending film territory in the world, overtaking tiny Iceland. The story of its film industry is astonishing. In 1998 there were 500 single screen cinemas and the industry sold 50 million tickets, just a quarter of them to domestically-produced films. By 2018, more than 2,700 multiplex screens had opened and more than half of the 216 million tickets sold were to Korean movies. This report tracks the industry's journey and the considerable international ambitions of South Korean exhibitors.

With comprehensive data covering issues like top films, national market shares, market shares in film distribution and exhibitor screen counts, this report reveals an intriguing industry which is playing a leading role in the evolution of the film business in Asia. Forecasts included in the report run up to 2023.
