NETFLIX ANNOUNCES NEW KOREAN ORIGINAL STAND-UP COMEDY SPECIAL WITH YG ENTERTAINMENT

November 24, Seoul, Korea -- Netflix Inc., the world's leading internet entertainment service, today announced that it is introducing a new Korean Netflix Original Stand-Up Comedy Special with YG Entertainment featuring Yoo Byung-Jae.

He is well known for his unique humor and comical acts in Korea, being featured in various TV shows including Infinite Challenge and Flower Crew.

Stand-up comedy is a relatively unknown genre in Korea, and while Netflix is the home for great stand-up comedians around the world, the latest addition in Korea will mean a whole new experience for viewers.

Netflix will also feature BLACK COMEDY in early 2018, another Netflix Original Comedy Special of Yoo's stand-up comedy act that was shot this year.

"We are thrilled to team up with YG Entertainment and Yoo Byung-Jae," said Erik Barmack, Vice President of International Original Series at Netflix. "Our aim is to partner with the boldest and funniest Korean comedy talent and share the laughter with the world."

"We are excited to introduce Yoo Byung-Jae's stand-up comedy on a global platform like Netflix," said a YG Entertainment representative. "This will be a great opportunity for Korean comedy to expand towards the global markets."
