classic korean movies streaming

Already, 2019 has been a historic year for South Korean film. This year marked the 100-year anniversary of the country’s illustrious film industry, which in recent decades has rapidly risen to be the pinnacle of world cinema. And of course, there’s the Cannes Palme D’Or win for Bong Joon-ho’s critically acclaimed film Parasite, the first ever time South Korea has won the honor. But despite South Korean film’s current standing on the global stage, its film history beyond the past two decades is still little-known to much of the world. But that can easily be remedied thanks to the official Korean Film Archive’s YouTube channel, which offers nearly 200 classic Korean films streaming for free.

movies leaving netflix

Our wallets may be soon taking a hit from the respective launches of Disney and WarnerMedia‘s streaming services, but it’s the reigning streaming giant Netflix that may be taking the biggest hit. We’ve all breathlessly followed the reports of Disney and WarnerMedia pulling their biggest titles — from Marvel, to Star Wars, to Friends — from Netflix after longstanding deals with the streaming giant, and it’s all painting Netflix as a barren wasteland of content in the aftermath. But according to a new report, that may not be the case.

Disney and WarnerMedia shows and movies leaving Netflix may not disappear as quickly from the streaming service as we would assume. And they may even not disappear permanently either.

cw netflix deal

As the streaming wars intensify, Netflix is finding itself at the center of everyone’s targets. In addition to losing Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars titles as Disney+ prepares to launch, and NBCUniversal preparing to pull streaming favorites The Office and Friends, Netflix is now losing out on future The CW shows.

The teen-friendly network is ending its CW Netflix deal, which would find CW shows like Arrow, The Flash, Riverdale, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend landing automatically on Netflix soon after a season finished airing. But CW is declining to renew that deal for its future shows, planning to shop new shows like Batwoman to other services. But don’t worry, Riverdale fans. The old shows will still stay on Netflix, with new seasons, for the foreseeable future.
