With Squid Game becoming its most-viewed show of all time, Netflix had quite the successful year with Korean content in 2021. Now, the platform is launching more than 20 Korean shows and movies for 2022. They span genres from romance to thriller and feature veteran actors as well as rising stars who recently launched their careers. In an announcement, Netflix shared the new year's lineup for Korean content, including details on some of the major titles we've been dying to get more information on.

Don Kang, Netflix's VP of Content for Korea, said in the announcement that global viewing hours for the platform's Korean shows "grew six-fold last year, compared to 2019." He also highlighted how, after Squid Game's release, Hellbound — the supernatural thriller from Train to Busan director Yeon Sang-ho — entered the Top 10 Netflix shows in 93 countries and ranked first in 34 of them. "As this fanbase increasingly includes viewers from all over the world, we are excited to continue collaborating with Korean storytellers to bring the K-wave to new heights," Kang said.

Up first on the calendar is the apocalyptic All Of Us Are Dead, a thriller about zombies invading a high school that premieres Jan. 28. Highly anticipated titles releasing in February include Twenty Five, Twenty One, a drama starring Kim Tae-ri in her first return to the small screen since 2018's Mr. Sunshine, and Nam Joo-hyuk of Start Up and Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo fame. Twenty Five, Twenty One drops Feb. 12, the same day that Forecasting Love and Weather, a rom-com featuring Park Min-young and Song Kang, premieres on the platform. Later on in the year, fans can look forward to the Korean adaptation of the beloved series Money Heist. No release date has been announced, though Netflix has shared that the show's title will be Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area.

On the film side, we're keeping a (close) eye on Love and Leashes. It's a BDSM-themed movie that follows "rookie domme" Jung Ji-woo and "expert sub" Jung Ji-hoo after a personal package ended up in the wrong hands at work. The film starring Seohyun and Lee Jun-young will be available to stream on Netflix Feb. 11.
