A South Korean cinema chain broke the internet recently by announcing that they are selling their popcorn by the bulk.

On 18 May, CJ CGV, the largest multiplex cinema chain in South Korea, recently went on Facebook to advertise their new popcorn promotion, revealing that cinemagoers can now purchase a cement-bag sized popcorn at KRW 9,900 per bag at selected theatres nationwide.


And the promo images are something to behold.

It’s raining corn… hallelujah…

And if you think, “Why would anybody buy that much popcorn?”, well, here are the photos of people buying them as if the world is ending.

It’s not actual cement, so it’s not too heavy to be dragged inside a bus

Can we suggest our local cinema chains to do this as well? Should we make a petition?
