Global SVOD service Netflix has just commissioned its first original twelve-part series based on a popular web cartoon strip from South Korea, as part of its move to go local in the region. The video streaming service has invested in a series called Love Alarm, which is based on graphic novelist Kye Young Chon’s romantic webtoon tales.
Netflix has also invested in a Korean film Okja and is reversioning first reality series Ultimate Beastmaster for the local South Korean market. The new original series will debut on Netflix in 2018 in more than 190 territories.
