Squid Game reached 111 million fans in just 27 days, since its release on September 17, easily outpacing UK costume drama Bridgerton, which was streamed by 82 million accounts in its first 28 days.


Hellbound is based on a webtoon (recently translated into an English-language graphic novel) and imagines a terrifying possible future where people begin receiving proclamations of their impending death.



As if that weren’t bad enough, the mysterious entity giving out the decree also grimly informs them that their soul will suffer in hell for eternity, creating a dystopian society governed by radical religious cults in the process.


This is just another victory for Netflix’s team in Korea after the well-received “Squid Game,” which also rocked the world by storm.


Haven’t watched “Hellbound” yet? The weekend is coming and this is definitely worth the binge. Catch all of its six episodes-and many other Korean content available on Netflix.
