Netflix Inc., the world’s leading internet entertainment service, announced last Friday (February 23, 2018) that it is launching a new Netflix Original Series with YG Entertainment – home to some of Korea’s top talent, entitled YG Future Strategy Office (FSO). YG FSO, although still in the works, will surely be launched this year through Netflix.
Featuring YG artists Seungri of K-pop group BIGBANG, writer and television personality Yoo Byung-jae of SNL Korea fame, and Lee Jae-jin of Sechskies, the show will also have various guest appearances by other K-pop groups including BLACKPINK, iKON, and WINNER. The 8-episode series will be directed by Park Joon-soo, known for his unique humor on The God of Music series, and written by Kim Min-seok, who took part in SNL Korea.
YG FSO stars Seungri as the head of YG’s newly formed department – The Future Strategy Office, where many of YG’s troublemakers have been sent. The sitcom series will follow Seungri and his team of misfits as they work to regain their place in the company.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the scenes shared to us by Netflix:
“We are ambitiously introducing the new show YG FSO and are looking forward to it being introduced in 190 countries around the world,” said YG Entertainment’s Park Joon-soo, director of YG FSO series. “We plan on introducing more quality entertainment content that many people can enjoy.”
“We are excited to team up with YG Entertainment and Seungri of BIGBANG to introduce YG FSO,” said Erik Barmack, Vice President of International Original Series at Netflix. “We will continue to bring great Korean content for our viewers around the world to enjoy.”
Looks like this is only the first of many more Korean shows for us to binge-watch in the future. We’re excited to see them on Netflix. Let us know if you are, too!
