Lee Min-ho’s “The King: Eternal Monarch” is streaming soon in April.
Netflix announced that this is one of the titles that they are releasing on their platform. Vice president for Korean content Kim Min-young says that they are trying to figure out “the type of content that is going to bring joy to our audiences.”
Kim said that they made their bets in variety shows with “Busted!” and “Twogether.” They are diversifying their Korean show offerings. This means you will see the type of dramas that people naturally gravitate toward like “Crash Landing on You,” but they will also come up with “Kingdom.”
