관객 means "spectator" and 청중 means "audience". 관객 indicates people watching something visual, while 청중 means people listening to something auditory. But I think you don't have to distinguish them because visual contents and sounds are used simultaneously nowadays.

in 관객(觀客) means "see", and in 청중(聽衆) means "listen to".
