Netflix secures multi-title licensing deal with Korea’s JTBC

Netflix has penned a multi-title licensing deal with South Korea’s JTBC for the broadcasting rights to 600 hours of the network’s top TV dramas.

A select library of JTBC’s scripted and unscripted content will now be available to Netflix users, including signature titles such as the cooking show Chef & My Fridge and Abnormal Summit.

Both shows will stream on the Netflix Korean service the day after they air on JTBC.

Beating Again and Can We Get Marries will be globally available on Netflix starting the third quarter of 2017.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that while Netflix has been expanding its slate of Korean originals, as well as library of titles from the Asian country, this was the first time a local series became simultaneously available on the video streaming giant.

Netflix’s first two Korean originals, Love Alarm and Kingdom are set to premiere in 2018.
