From anime, K-drama, teen comedies, and a family film, there’s a little something for every Netflix subscriber from the best new movies and TV shows this weekend.
Here are the best new movies and TV shows added to Netflix this week:
Song of the Bandits (Season 1) N
We’re all in on Kam Nam Gil’s official Netflix debut! We’re yet to see a Korean western on the streaming service, and has all the potential to be a smash hit.
“An action-adventure set in the tumultuous period of Japanese colonial rule over Korea about a group of people who, for various reasons, end up in the lawless land of Gando and become united in protecting Joseon for the Korean people. Anticipation runs high for the intense drama that will unfold as different groups with their respective motives — including Japanese troops, the Korean Independence Army, hitmen, bandits, and Joseon migrants — face one another in the anarchic land of Gando during the 1920s.”
