After a time of solid extension between the last part of the 1990s and mid 2010s, the cinema business in Korea got experienced and stabilized.Footnote7 According to the upper left board of Fig. 2, the cross country crowd size expanded from 150 million out of 2010 to 210 million of every 2013, because of the accomplishment of neighborhood films. From that point forward, notwithstanding, there has been not really any adjustment in yearly shopper interest. Hence, in the exact investigation in Section 4, I accept that normal deals in 2020 would be equivalent to deals in the earlier year to recognize the income misfortune because of decreased film interest and the misfortune because of the endogenous film quality decision by merchants.
In 2018, Korea was the fifth biggest cinema market on the planet regarding film industry income (US$ 1.6 billion).Footnote8 Unlike the U.S., vertical joining among merchants and exhibitors is permitted in Korea. Table 4 in the Appendix shows that therefore, there are three enterprises, CJ, Lotte, and JContentree, whose joined piece of the pie was more than 90% in the presentation business (2,835 out of 3,079 screens) and 30% in the dissemination business (71 out of 227 million purchasers) in 2019.
Developing uneasiness about the COVID-19 pandemic drove individuals to rehearse social removing, which thusly had a solid negative impact on film interest. The upper right board of Fig. 2 exhibits that 40% less individuals went to the film during the Lunar New Year in 2020 than in 2019. Likewise, as indicated by the figure the cross country crowd size vacillates throughout a year, reflecting both irregularity in fundamental film interest and irregularity in film quality and number (Einav 2007). After the Lunar New Year occasion, for example, the crowd size shows the equivalent declining design during February and March in the two years.
As the COVID-19 pandemic was delayed, Time to Hunt, a neighborhood film whose dramatic delivery was at first planned for 26 February however was deferred twice, was delivered on 23 April by Netflix. With a creation cost of 10 billion Korean won (around 8.3 million US dollars), the film was relied upon to appreciate accomplishment at the container office.Footnote9 While this is the lone instance of avoiding the dramatic delivery in Korea up until now, postponement of motion pictures was more normal. For instance, the quantity of deferred films arrived at 50 by early March.Footnote10 Also, affixes began to close a few venues beginning in late March as film request plunged; CJ suspended activity of 35 auditoriums in late March, while JContentree chose to close down 10 performance centers in April.Footnote11
The cinema business is described by its uniform estimating practice, that is, all shows in an auditorium during a given schedule opening will in general be similarly priced.Footnote12 Interestingly, cinemas didn't bring down the affirmation cost after the COVID-19 episode in spite of the sharp decrease in their business records. The base board of Fig. 2, for example, shows that the normal confirmation value (film industry income separated by crowd size) was around 7 dollars during 2019, and there is no unmistakable proof that the cost diminished in January and February. Given the consistency and inflexibility of the value, like past examinations on film request assessment (Einav 2007; Moul 2008; Leung et al. 2019) I expect that the cost is exogenously decided and fixed in the observational examination.
