“Single’s Inferno” Success Signals Great Potential For K-Reality Shows

Now, the first Korean reality show to be listed on the global Netflix chart, the success of “Single’s Inferno” seems to signal the potential for K-Reality programs to follow the success of K-Dramas on Netflix.

In the last few years, Netflix has bent to the weight of the powerful K-Wave. With the platform filled with dramas of every genre, it was only a matter of time before Netflix added Korean reality shows to the streaming service.
