It is also ranked third in the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia and Qatar and Africa and Latin America. In Europe, ‘My Name’ is ranked in the top 10 and ranked sixth in the U.S., where K-dramas gained the highest attraction.
The share price of Studio Santa Claus, the production company behind the ‘Squid Game,’ is also growing as their next drama ‘My Name’ is gaining popularity. One of the most common questions in the broadcasting world right now is what to watch after the Squid Game, as that was the first introduction to many people on Korean television. Now, Netflix wants to provide a simple answer to My Name, a new Korean drama that is already starting to make its mark in the top 10, even in the US.
Han So Hee in ‘My Name’
My Name just appeared this past Friday and has already reached # 9 in the top 10 Netflix in the US, # 6 for TV. It is the story of a woman who joins a gang to take revenge on her father’s death and then goes into hiding as a policeman. She plays Han So-hee, a model and actor who has been in many Korean dramas since 2017, but this may be her biggest role yet.
While it is unlikely that My Name will repeat the extreme success of the Squid Game virus, it can be looked at it in the same way. After the Squid Game, we will see top Korean dramas rising charts around the world, now as more people are willing to give them a chance.
