One of the stranger things (no pun intended) that Netflix has been doing, is putting up South Korean shows and films. They perhaps see value, as popular series like The Good Doctor, and The Masked Singer both have originations in… South Korea. Squid Game, Physical:100, and The Glory have already brought serious cash to Netflix. So, Netflix’s announcement of putting $2.5 Billion into more content from South Korea just seems to be a great idea. This follows other efforts to bring in productions from around the world, delivering a venue that provides stories different than our own backgrounds and approaches to story telling.
Netflix doubles down on South Korean content amid cost concerns across streaming industry.
