South Korea hailed as content provider with ‘All of Us Are Dead’: The DONG-A ILBO

South Korea has “consolidated its status as the hottest local content provider,” according to US magazine Deadline on Saturday.

South Korean drama series “All of Us Are Dead” on Netflix has remained on top across the world, garnering praise from overseas fans. On Sunday, he ranked no. 1 among Netflix TV dramas for 8 consecutive days from Jan. 29 to Feb. 5, OTT content chart website FlixPatrol said. On January 28, it climbed to the top spot a day after its release. On Thursday, “All of Us Are Dead” ranked No. 1 in 58 countries.

While a series of K-dramas such as “Squid Game” and “Hellbound” have taken the world by storm, South Korea enjoys a higher status as a theater producer. “The one-two punch of ‘Squid Game’ and ‘All of Us Are Dead’ didn’t come out of nowhere,” Deadline wrote. He pointed out that US viewership jumped more than 200% between 2019 and 2021 as interest in K-dramas increased in the United States.

The magazine described that South Korea had become the first country to have multiple non-English language series conquering Netflix’s US Daily Top 10. “South Korea has become such a massive force in entertainment that it could prove eternally irresistible,” commented Screen Rant, another American film news magazine.
