New work “The 8 Show” couldn’t even beat “Queen of Tears”, which ended last month

Netflix's series "The 8 Show" had a sluggish start

According to Netflix Global Top 10, “The 8 Show” garnered 1.7 million views and 11.9 million hours watched from May 13th to 19th, placing it 7th in the TV non-English category.

This ranking is disappointing compared to other new works, which typically rank higher in their first week in the same category.

Released on May 17th, “The 8 Show” tells the story of eight people who are trapped in a secret space divided into eight floors and participate in a sweet but dangerous show where they “earn money as time accumulates”. Directed by Han Jae-rim, it stars Ryu Jun-yeol, Chun Woo-hee, Park Jeong-min and Bae Seong-woo.

Meanwhile, tvN’s “Queen of Tears“, which concluded last month, remains popular. It amassed 1.8 million views and 43.1 million hours watched, ranking 6th.

JTBC’s “The Atypical Family”, which premiered on May 5th, ranked 8th with 1.5 million views and 9.8 million hours watched during the counting period.
