The World Loves K-Romance - and We Have Six New Series to Make Your Heart Beat Faster

If you have been swept off your feet by the unconventional love story in Crash Landing on You, or melted at the first stirrings of connection in Extraordinary Attorney Woo and Business Proposal, then brace yourselves for a heartbeat-skipping announcement.

Audiences worldwide have been growing fonder of K-Romance, and this affection shows no signs of fading. Between 2018 to 2022, global viewership of Netflix's K-Romance titles tripled. In 2022 alone, more than 90 per cent of this viewing came from outside South Korea.

We're moved by the affection, and we're eager to return it in kind. As the home for compelling K-Romance, Netflix will be introducing six new Korean romance series over the upcoming five months.

For decades, this genre has captivated audiences in Korea and throughout Asia, a testament to the storytelling prowess and production expertise of gifted Korean content creators, observes Don Kang, Vice President of Content (Korea). "We're genuinely humbled by how our emotive Korean shows have found a home in the hearts of global audiences through Netflix, stretching from the U.S., Europe, South America, and beyond. Our stories touch on the universal aspects of life - love, heartbreak, and tenderness, while also providing a peek into the unique facets of Korean culture. Netflix's commitment to forging this profound global connection is something we're truly excited about."

"Creators have dedicated themselves to painting the delicate dynamics and evolving emotions of our characters," adds Wooyeon Yang, Director of Content (Korea). The crafting of the hallmark slow-burning intensity of K-Romances, along with their wholesome appeal, shapes an undeniably "endearing genre that strikes a chord with global viewers", she believes.

Netflix's investment in subtitling and dubbing has been instrumental in expanding the K-Romance audience. "The impact has been more profound than we ever imagined," shares Yang. "Despite the diversity of languages, the common thread of understanding and accessing Korean content seems to be a key strength that has set Netflix as a trendsetter." Yang underscores the value of dubbing, noting that "listening to dialogues in their own languages helps K-Romance resonate more deeply with viewers worldwide".

Continuing the world's love for this genre, Netflix's upcoming K-Romance shows will each have their own distinct features. Here's a sneak peek at what these new shows have to tell.
