Barbie not only won millions of hearts and over a billion dollars but also broke many records with its legendary success. The Greta Gerwig directorial, which saw Margot Robbie in the lead role of Stereotypical Barbie and how she embarks on a journey of exploring the real world and its bitter truths, has done extraordinarily well in theatres. But, although the movie has crossed $1.2 billion at its worldwide box office, it is still a flop in various countries.
Apart from extreme cases such as Barbie facing a ban in Algeria, Kuwait and Lebanon, the movie could not perform well in South Korea. As per the latest report by Marca, the movie could only gather $4 million in the Asian country. The reason behind its domestic failure in South Korea is feminism still being considered taboo in the country.
