The number of moviegoers in South Korea dropped to an all-time low in April, data showed, as people refrained from visiting crowded places amid the new coronavirus pandemic.

A total of 972,447 people went to the cinema last month - the first time the figure fell below the 1 million threshold since the data was first compiled in 2004, according to the Korean Film Council.

It marked a drastic drop from a whopping 13.3 million posted a year earlier. (Yonhap)
