Which Korean entertainment shows are you missing?
Recode has a new report out today about the state of Korean entertainment and entertainment news, with more details about what’s trending, the hottest shows on the air, and which shows are most likely to disappear.
The data comes from the Korean Entertainment Industry Association, which has tracked entertainment news for a decade.
This data is a little more granular than the data we’ve seen on the site before, and it includes a new look at the number of total shows, and a more granulized breakdown of the shows that have been picked up for air.
(For more on what we’ve learned so far, read our podcast episode about the data.)
This report also includes an update on what’s coming next for Korean entertainment, including new shows that are coming to streaming services like Amazon Video, Hulu Plus, and Netflix.
If you missed it, check out our podcast with Recode’s Kara Swisher, who’s going to take you through all the new and old shows coming to Netflix.
The new report also lists the top shows that people are watching more of now.
It says, “The number of top-rated shows is the largest among the top 20 shows, with K-pop shows in particular enjoying the most momentum among this group.”
The data shows that “K-pop dramas and dramas related to the entertainment industry, including dramas of the K-Pop generation, are the most watched show among viewers ages 18 to 24,” as well as among viewers aged 18 to 49.
The number of people watching the most shows is also higher than in the past, with people spending an average of two hours a day on K-songs.
That’s probably because of the huge amount of content available on YouTube, with the highest number of hours watching K-music videos.
That data is based on an average per hour viewer count, so the number is likely a lot higher for older people, and there’s also a lot of content that isn’t available to the public.
While this data is still pretty sparse, there are a couple of notable trends.
The shows that show up the most are mostly dramas.
In other words, if you’re watching a K-drama, you’re likely watching it more than any other K-series.
There are also a few shows that might be going away from streaming services in the future.
For example, we might see shows like The Black Lagoon, and The Bachelorette ending their streaming seasons.
If you’re a fan of shows like House of Cards or Arrested Development, you might want to watch a show like this.
The top five shows are also pretty consistent across all genres, with comedy, drama, and family shows coming in at the top of the list.
It’s not like there’s a clear winner or loser here, though.
The best-of list for new shows is definitely not all drama, or the best-on-demand shows, or anything that can be streamed for free.
It might be interesting to see which shows make the cut, if at all, in the coming years.
