Of the total, 99.7 percent are Koreans. Domestic flights to Jeju Island this month decreased by 27 percent compared to the previous year, and hotels have left some rooms empty in order to keep a social distance amid the pandemic situation. Considering COVID-19 still occupies our daily lives, this number is surprisingly high.

The phenomenon of “localization (localization) of consumption” is starting in earnest.
