Korean drama has become a regular source of hit Netflix shows. But even mega-hits like It’s Okay to Not Be Okay may pale in comparison to the Battle Royale-like Squid Game which, per Netflix’s own announcement, is on track to become the streamer’s most-watched show. Despite this, the fact that it was released late in the month means that other shows have had a stronger showing on the Netflix charts, still it has managed to grab the number one position.
