It would have been convenient for non-asian subscibers if it were on Netflix. I am still hopeful that the drama will appear on Netflix after the expiration of it’s contract with Viki. Though,if only Viki gets their subtitles promptly, then I don’t mind it not having it on Netflix. Unfortunately that’s not the case.
I wonder if Netflix help worldwide buzz though. Maybe for the Americas/Europe /Africa/Australia but kdrama market of these regions even combined still hold the minority. Well I could be wrong maybe things have changed and kdramas have gained more popularity outside Asia.
