Caught the K-drama bug? Then you’ll probably be wanting to dive into the full library of Korean content on Netflix but as you may know, navigating Netflix can sometimes be a chore so here’s some tips on how to binge through Netflix’s collection of Korean content.
We’ve cataloged over 3,000 of these category codes in the so-called “Netflix Code Bible,” which covers all kinds of different movie and TV genres that unlock the entirety of Netflix’s 6,000+ library.
So without further ado, here’s a list of all the specific Netflix category codes related to Netflix’s Korean library.
Sort Netflix by Korean Language
Probably the most effective way of looking through Netflix’s Korean lineup is by using the new language filters available on the website version of Netflix.
You’ll find a “Browse by Languages” tab at the top of the Netflix website. Select “Original Language” in the first box on that page and “Korean” in the second box.
Alternatively, you can click through to the full list here.
This will then provide you with the full list of Korean movies and series on Netflix.
Additionally, for those in the United States, you can also find a full breakdown of all the Korean language content on Netflix via our library page.
