Netflix Signs First Korean Variety Show ‘Busted!’

Streaming giant Netflix has begun production on “Busted!”, its first variety show in South Korea. The show is to be produced in association with local firm SangSang.

The show is pitched as an “unconventional variety game show in which every episode features stars solving a mystery.” It is also the first season-based variety show by SangSang, which previously produced hits “Running Man” and “Family Outing.” The show will be filmed in various locations in Korea throughout the season and be launched globally in 2018.

“’Busted!’ is a unique challenge that will combine the drama and variety genres, providing both suspense of a mystery genre and fun of variety shows,” said producer Cho Hyo-jin. Cast members who will be taking part in solving each episode’s mystery will not know which of them will participate in the game and what roles they play until it is revealed through the making of the show.

In Korea, Netflix previously announced production of the drama “Kingdom,” directed by Sung-Hoon Kim and written by Eun-Hee Kim, and of drama “Love Alarm,” based on Kye-Young Chon’s webtoon. It also financed feature film “Okja” by Bong Joon-ho, which had its debut in competition this year at the Cannes Film Festival.

SangSang was founded by Cho and Jang Hyuk-Jae. Its “Running Man” was also produced in China with Cho and Jang as producers.
