Squid Game Made South Korea No 2 Supplier of Popular Content on Netflix

According to US internet media, South Korea remained Netflix’s second-largest supplier of popular content in the fourth quarter of last year, thanks to Squid Game. South Korean-made shows accounted for 11.8 per cent of the top 10 films and TV series in the final three months of 2021, according to What’s On Netflix, a private online service that provides information on Netflix content.

Korean content thus ranked No. 2 for the second consecutive quarter after the United States, which accounted for 59 per cent, reports Yonhap News Agency. The figures are based on data by the streaming analytics firm FlixPatrol, it added. It marked a sharp increase from its share of 5.4 per cent for the third quarter, thanks to the breakout hit ‘Squid Game’, released on September 17, and other hit series.

“The fourth quarter of 2021 is likely to be an outlier with the arrival of ‘Squid Game’, but Korean content has been on a slow march up the charts regardless of ‘Squid Game’,” the report said.

‘Squid Game’ became the most successful Netflix show in history, with its total viewership reaching a record 1.65 billion hours in the first four weeks of its release.
