My personal thoughts- written by Jass K.
WOW! This is amazing, I am so proud.
When I first watched this drama, it was more like a routine recap and review experience at first. However, while watching that the drama I became certain it was going to find success but I would have never imagined this massive success. I am so happy and so proud, this drama truly deserves it.
I think this means Netflix will invest in Korean content even more next year which is already great news, I bet many great directors and writers have visions that need a medium like Netflix. Without them, this drama wouldn’t have turned out this well. It took the director 10 years to make the drama but I am glad it was through Netflix.
I also bet that the success of the drama will accelerate more OTT platforms like Hulu and Apple TV+ to invest more in Korean content.
