2021 saw the huge success of Netflix Original content such as “Squid Game”, “Hellbound”, and “The Silent Sea”. 2022 is promising an even more jam-packed line up of original content with Netflix having announced 12 Netflix Original K-Dramas that will be released.
However, it seems like a new competitor is stepping into the K-Drama game this year. Disney+ (Disney Plus) has finally reached Korea and got K-Drama fans excited with their release of the JTBC drama “Snowdrop” last year. This year they have a number of original dramas coming out such as “Rookie Cops”, “Grid”, “Sixth Sense Kiss”, and more with big names such as Kang Daniel (making his acting debut), Chae SooBin, Seo KangJoon, and Seo JiHye to name a few.
