'Juvenile Justice' tops Neflix non-English chart for two weeks
Netflix Korea's "Juvenile Justice" topped Netflix's non-English TV chart for two consecutive weeks, according to the streaming company on Wednesday.
From March 7 to 13, the series clocked 25.94 million viewing hours. It was followed by "The Scent of Passion" (2021), a Colombian television series that achieved 23.06 million viewing hours during the same period.
In the show's first week after its permiere in February 25, "Juvenile Justice" had ranked third on the chart, behind "All of Us Are Dead" (2022) and "The Scent of Passion." But since March, the show has kept its spot as No. 1 with a cumulative 89.28 million hours viewed.
"Juvenile Justice" tells the story of Shim Eun-seok, a judge who openly expresses her disdain for juvenile offenders. Veteran actor Kim Hye-soo takes on the lead role of Shim.
Kim is one of the few Korean stars who rose to fame in the 1980s and is still active on screen. She has appeared in films "The War of Flower" (2006), "The Thieves" (2012), "The Face Reader" (2013), "Default" (2018), and in a number pf television series, including "The Queen of Office" (2013) on KBS, "Signal" (2016) on tvN and "Hyena" (2020) on SBS.
