Netflix continues to introduce new content from different countries to their 100 million subscribers. From Animes to their Korean action movies, Netflix is acquiring content to keep their foreign library full. One of the best films period on Netflix is the Korean zombie movie Train To Busan.

With Busan being one of the most viewed movies for Netflix, the media giant has decided to pick director Yeon Sang-ho next project Psychokinesis. The film is an emotional superhero story of a young father who goes on a journey to save his troubled daughter, after discovering he possesses psychic superpowers.

The film was picked up as one of three titles acquired from Contents Panda, the international sales arm of South Korean investor-distributor Next Entertainment World. Other titles are Yang Woo-seok’s “Steel Rain” and “The Chase” by Kim Hong-sun.

Netflix has also been involved with Korean films from other sources and is ramping up its involvement in the Korean production scene. It fully financed “Okja,” the animal fantasy with a $50 million budget by Bong Joon-ho.

“Netflix will continue to keep a close eye on great global content, as we are committed to providing the best entertainment to our members around the world,” said Rob Roy, VP of content acquisitions.
