"The Wailing," directed by Na Hong-jin, attracted some 5.82 million moviegoers last month to top the local box office, according to the Korean Film Council on Wednesday.
Domestic movies drew a total of 8.35 million spectators in May, the second best month so far this year, and the thriller, which was released on May 12, accounted for some 70 percent of the number.
But overall, foreign movies took up 53.6 percent of the box office due to poor performance of other Korean films.
