Korean films accounted for just 30.5 percent of total ticket receipts at the box office last month, down from 40 percent in April to a level not seen in over three years as Hollywood blockbusters take center stage, according to the Korean Film Council.
Some 4.3 million tickets were sold for Korean movies in May, a month in which Iron Man 3 dominated the box office by attracting nearly 42 percent of total ticket sales.
Last year, homegrown movies attracted 65 percent of all moviegoers on average.
