Every Tuesday, Netflix updates its weekly ranking of its most popular movies and TV shows. Lists are based on hours watched during the previous week.
Netflix spent $500 million on South Korean content last year. The Korean series “Squid Game”, launched in September, was the most-watched series of all time. The show was watched for 1.65 billion hours in its first 28 days of release, easily surpassing Netflix’s second-biggest series, “Bridgerton.”
Behind “All of Us Are Dead” this week were “Ozark,” which recently launched the first part of its fourth and final season, and the hit Colombian telenovela “Café con Aroma de Mujer.” The latter is not available on Netflix in the US, where it streams on Telemundo and streams on Peacock.
Netflix is also investing heavily in telenovelas as it seeks to attract subscribers in Latin America, which the company identified as a slowing growth region in its latest earnings call last month.
