The Darkly Comedic Thriller “Bodkin” Enters the Netflix Chart


  The series “Bodkin,” produced by SLL's label wiip, has reached 5th place on Netflix’s Global Top 10 list (English). “Bodkin” is a darkly comedic thriller about a motley crew of podcasters who set out to investigate the mysterious disappearance of three strangers in a quaint, coastal Irish town, but once they start pulling at threads, they discover a story much bigger and weirder than they could have ever imagined.

  The drama is directed by Nash Edgerton and stars Will Forte, Siobhán Cullen, and Robyn Cara. Telling a fresh story that combines comedy and thriller, the series challenges our perception of truth and exposes the stories we tell ourselves to justify our beliefs or validate our fears. The show is available on Netflix.

“The Atypical Family” and “Frankly Speaking” Ranked High on a Netflix Chart with Real-life Empathetic Fantasy


  The series “The Atypical Family” and “Frankly Speaking” have captured the attention of viewers with the keywords “empathy” and “fantasy.” “The Atypical Family” resonated with audiences with its hilarious yet sad story of a superpowered family who lost superpowers to a modern-day disease.

  “Frankly Speaking,” a wacky real-life comic fantasy drama about an announcer who meets a passionate variety show writer, is also garnering attention. The up-and-down broadcasting life of Song Ki Baek provided a refreshing sense of fun for office workers who always hide their true feelings deep inside. With such appeal, “The Atypical Family” ranked 6th on Netflix's Top 10 list (non-English), and “Frankly Speaking” ranked 10th, both of which are at the top of the OTT rankings in Korea and abroad, showing promise for future growth.

This global drama co-production project is significant because it goes beyond local sales or remakes of existing IPs to share the production capabilities of Korean and Japanese studios from the planning stage and collaborate directly with creators.
