SIX NEW ORIGINAL TITLES ON NETFLIX WE CAN'T WAIT TO SHARE WITH K-DRAMA FANS!

19/06/2019

Singapore, June 14, 2019 - Fans of K-drama will swoon all over again with the line-up from Netflix's ensemble of Hallyu's best content this summer and fall seasons!

There's just so much love for Korean content in this region, especially in Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Netflix started adding Korean titles three years ago and we've seen how that has attracted new audiences who are discovering the Netflix viewing experience for their k-drama viewing, said Minyoung Kim, Director of Content, Korea, Netflix. Fan favorites like Korean Odyssey, Something in the Rain, What's Wrong with Secretary Kim are all part of our growing library and today, we are pleased to be working with Korean talent and creators on the second season of original titles like Kingdom and My First First Love.

Since 2018, Netflix's library of Korean content is a growing library of popular romantic comedies like Romance Is My Bonus Book to thrillers like Memories of the Alhambra. In 2019, Netflix's new original Korean original films and drama continues to ramp up with hits like Abyss, Arthdal Chronicles and One Spring Night - all of which are exclusively available to Netflix members in [name of country].

There's no time like now for fans to refresh their watch-list as Netflix is bringing a host of new Korean original titles. Our six picks cover a variety of stories and genres including drama, sci-fi, thriller, horror, comedy and romance:

SVAHA: THE SIXTH FINGER - Svaha is a mystery thriller, starring veteran actor Lee Jung-jae (Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds, Along With the Gods: The Last 49 Days) and up-and-coming actor Park Jung-min, best known for his performance in the indie film Bleak Night and Dongju: The Portrait of a Poet. The film is a tapestry of subplots woven like a puzzle with Pastor Park, (played by Lee Jung-Jae) hired to expose a religious cult. He learns of a young girl's murder whose body was found following a tunnel accident and starts to connect the pieces to his investigation. Unfolding in parallel, the obsession of another young girl Geum-hwa by religious fanatic Na-han (played by Park Jung-min) slowly builds a mystery that rattles and confuses Pastor Park.

Svaha is written and directed by Jang Jae-hyun, known for the hit supernatural thriller The Priests (2015) that sold over 5.4 million tickets at the box office in Korea.

ABOUT TRAILER

Geum-hwa is gazing into space, with fear in her eyes. Pastor Park is being commissioned to look into a new cult group. Na-han, looking entirely emotionless, is chasing Geum-hwa. He recites a dark spell at the end.

CHIEF OF STAFF - Chief of Staff is a drama series about the world of political aides who are normally outside the spotlight. It portrays aides as the real players in politics, whose desire for power can sometimes be stronger than that of the lawmakers they serve.

Jang Tae-jun, played by Lee Jung-jae, is the chief of staff to a four-term lawmaker. He graduated at the top of his class from the police academy, but he did not want to be a police lieutenant. As Chief of Staff, Jang is excellent at everything he does. He makes the impossible possible. If it were not for Jang's persistent intuition and cool judgement, the lawmaker could not have become the floor leader of his party. Jang would not stop there, though. The bigger dreams he has are hidden in his soft smile.

Kang Seon-yeong, played by Shin Min-ah (Oh My Venus, My Girlfriend Is a Nine-tailed Fox), is a lawyer-turned-politician, serving as the spokesperson for her party. Kang is resolute and gentle, and always carries herself with confidence and strong determination. The fact that she became a lawmaker by proportional representation challenges her future in politics at times, but she is not swayed by what others think, nor gives up because she fears.

Chief of Staff is directed by Kwak Jung-hwan (Ms. Hammurabi, THE K2, The Slave Hunters) and written by Lee Dae-il (Life on Mars, Bring It On, Ghost).

Designated Survivor: 60 Days - Designated Survivor: 60 Days is a Korean adaptation of the popular American TV series Designated Survivor. It follows the main storyline of the original format, but features more of the Korean reality.

Designated Survivor: 60 Days is a story of a politician, who ascends from the position of Minister of Environment to President, as an explosion at the National Assembly kills everyone in the Cabinet who is ahead of him in terms of the presidential succession.

Park Mu-jin, played by actor Ji Jin-hee from the popular TV series Daejanggeum or Jewel in the Palace, is a scientist-turned-politician who struggles to fit in politics. Park is the acting president for 60 days, and during this period, albeit inexperienced and unwilling, he tries to uncover the truth behind the attack.

Lee Joon-hyuk, best known for his performance in the highly-praised TV series Stranger, plays an independent lawmaker, Oh Young-seok, who is not only charming but also full of confidence and young energy, which comes off as a stark contrast to Park.

A new character has been added to Designated Survivor: 60 Days. Han Ju-seung, the Chief Presidential Secretary, is played by Heo Joon-ho whom Netflix fans will recognize from the first season of Kingdom. Han is very calm and composed, and tends to draw a clear line between private and public matters, which in turn creates tension between him and Park.

Designated Survivor: 60 Days is written by Kim Tae-hee who is known for the beloved TV series Sungkyunkwan Scandal, and is directed by Yoo Jong-seon, whose filmography in
