Two popular and beloved Netflix Original k-dramas will be leaving the service in March 2023, A Korean Odyssey and Live.
In an effort to increase the number of Korean shows on Netflix, shows like A Korean Odyssey and Live were phenomenal additions to the library. Both k-dramas were from the first batch of fantastic new content from the cable network tvN and helped to pave the way for future dramas on the service.
From the time A Korean Odyssey and Live were first added to Netflix we’ve seen dozens of new k-dramas added to the global Netflix library.
Naturally, unless the shows make a return, many subscribers will be sad to see the pair leave the streaming service.
