Netflix unveils Korean content slate for 2023

Netflix has announced its Korean content slate for 2023, which includes both returning and new shows, as well as several feature films, documentaries, and unscripted series.

Following the massive global success of ‘Squid Game’ the streaming service is quite bullish on K-content, claiming that 60 percent of its viewers tuned in for Korean shows.

Netflix will launch a total of 34 Korean titles on its platform, including returning fan favourites series ‘Sweet Home’, ‘D.P.’, and ‘The Glory’, a press release stated.

‘The Glory’, starring South Korean superstar Song Hye Kyo, will return in March with Part Two, following the January 2 premiere of Part One.

Three new shows, ‘Gyeongseong Creature’, ‘Black Knight’, and ‘Song of the Bandits’, revolve around the theme of survival.

New romance titles include ‘A Time Called You,’ ‘Behind Your Touch (WT)’, ‘Crash Course in Romance’, ‘Destined With You’, ‘Doona!’, ‘King the Land’, ‘Love to Hate You’, and ‘See You In My 19th Life’, as well as drama shows ‘Daily Dose of Sunshine’, ‘Queenmaker’, and ‘The Good Bad Mother’.

‘Bloodhounds’, ‘Celebrity’, and ‘Mask Girl’, as well as the post-apocalyptic drama “Goodbye Earth,” round out the lineup.

In 2023, the streamer intends to release six Korean films: ‘JUNG-E’, ‘Kill Boksoon’, ‘Believer 2’, ‘Ballerina’, ‘The Match’, and ‘Unlocked’.

In addition, Netflix will premiere reality shows such as ‘Physical:100’, ‘Siren: Survive the Island’, ‘Zombieverse’, ‘Nineteen to Twenty’ and ‘The Devil’s Plan’.

There are two new documentaries as well.

The first film, ‘Yellow Door: Looking for Director Bong’s Unreleased Short Film’, will follow the search for Oscar-winning director Bong Joon-debut Ho’s film.

It will be followed by ‘In the Name of God: A Holy Betrayal’ , a true-crime documentary. It delves into the self-proclaimed “messiahs” of modern Korean history.

After witnessing the global popularity of K-content last year, Don Kang, VP of Content (Korea), stated that the streamer is bringing a wider variety of Korean stories to fans in 2023.

“Over the last year, Korean series and films have regularly featured in our Global Top 10 list in more than 90 countries, and three of Netflix’s most-watched shows ever are from Korea.

“This year, we’re pushing the envelope even further with the stories we tell and how we tell them. With this lineup of Korean titles, Netflix will continue to be the ultimate destination for compelling, diverse and must-watch Korean storytelling,” Kang said.
