Netflix is currently one the main platforms for the Korean industry to bring their unique and mind-blowing contents for the international market. There is not a single K-Drama out there which you have heard from someone, and is not available on this streaming giant. Offering a wide variety of genres, from light-hearted rom-coms, action-packed thrillers, bone-chilling suspense, inspiring sports dramas, medical and sci-fi to evergreens, whatever you pick, all are available on Netflix. However, one of its latest additions was Celebrity, last year.

Although the makers ignited the massive fans with some seductive romantic scenes before its release, Celebrity falls under the suspense thriller genre, and not the typical romance one. The drama became an instant hit, climbing the charts and trending in multiple countries. With its captivating storyline and talented ensemble star-cast, Celebrity accumulated 7.5 million views, and ranked #1 on the Global Top 10 chart of Netflix in 2023.
