    The number of moviegoers surpassed 220 million this year, setting a new record.

    The Korean Film Council said on Sunday that about 225 million people visited movie theaters from Jan. 1 to Dec. 28. The number is expected to exceed 226 million by the end of this month.

    The previous record was 220 million set in 2017.

    The increase in theater attendance is largely attributed to a number of hit films which drew over 10 million viewers each -- "Extreme Job" (16 million viewers), "Avengers: Endgame" (14 million), "Frozen II" (13 million), "Aladdin" (13 million) and "Parasite" (10 million).
