Korea, March 23, 2020 - Netflix today announced a new slate of best-in-class Korean shows - from reality to crime and sci-fi to romance, dramas and more.

"From K-pop and K-food, to K-zombie and K-content, we've seen how much people in different parts of the world love Korean cultures and stories. So we're excited to announce these new best in class Korean stories for our members," said Minyoung Kim, Vice President of Korean Content at Netflix. "It's amazing to see how these Korea films and TV resonate with audiences around the world - from Korea to South East Asia and the Americas. By making it easy for people to watch films and shows from other countries, we can help them build empathy and develop a shared understanding of the world".

In 2019, 'Crash Landing on You,' a romance story about a couple from the two Koreas showed the popularity of K-content making the top 10 list in the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand.

This year we'll have even more best in class K-stories with 'Kingdom', which returned with its second season on March 13th. The K-zombie series has again become one of the Top 10 titles in almost every Asian country, and millions of people globally have already chosen to watch its second season - including many people who've never tried a show like this before. And that is just the beginning:
