SEOUL-- South Korean fantasy horror "Hellbound" has dropped to second place on Netflix's weekly official viewership chart for non-English TV programs in its second week of release, the global video streaming service said Wednesday.
Yeon Sang-ho's dystopian horror ranked No. 2 on the chart for the week from Nov. 22-28, posting 67.5 million hours of viewing.
It was closely followed by the Colombian telenovela "The Queen of Flow: Season 2" with 69 million hours.
The Korean-language original slipped one notch from the top position with a viewership of 43.5 million hours last week, just three days after its premier on Nov. 19.
Netflix said "Hellbound," which depicts social turmoil and unrest after a series of inexplicable supernatural phenomena, made the top 10 in TV in 93 countries over the one-week period and topped the list in 34 nations, including France, Belgium and South Korea.
Meanwhile, three more South Korean series were included in the top 10 non-English TV show category for the previous week.
The sensational survival drama "Squid Game," released in September, finished third with a total of 25.7 million hours of viewing, while the historical romance "The King's Affection" and the romantic comedy "Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha" placed fourth and sixth with 15.9 million hours and 13.3 million hours, respectively.
