Mobile games are the mainstream of video games in South Korea. In terms of value sales, mobile games accounted for 55% of total video games, followed by a 23% value share for online games. Considering the extremely high penetration of smartphones among South Koreans, the dominance of mobile games since 2012 is a natural consequence. Console games are a relatively weak area in the local market due to the easy access to online and mobile games at a lower cost.
