“We are excited to work with Next Entertainment World to bring such high-quality Korean titles like ‘Pandora’ to our members worldwide,” said Rob Roy, VP of content acquisition at Netflix. “Netflix is committed to bringing the best of global entertainment to the world and in an era where the internet knows no bounds, this is another step towards delivering great stories to fans no matter where they live.”
