One of the high-profile JTBC shows to appear on Netflix around the world as a Netflix Original now shows a departure date that suggests it will leave the service for good in June 2022. man to man is scheduled to leave Netflix on June 10, 2022.
The show first aired on JTBC in South Korea between April 21 and April 21
June 10, 2017 before arriving on Netflix on June 10, 2017.
That means Netflix has the exclusive license to stream the show for exactly 5 years (this could be critical in determining other high-profile K-drama takedowns in the future). NewonNetflix.info also notes that there is a period in October 2017 when the show was unavailable.
The lead roles in the series were Park Hae-jin, Park Sung-woong, Kim Min-jung, Chae Jung-an and Yeon Jung-hoon.
Here’s what to expect if you haven’t dived into the 16-episode series yet:
“Disguised as a bodyguard, a special agent must complete his national secret duties while indulging in the whims of his ill-tempered world star.”
As we’ve seen with many K-dramas, Man to Man would never return for a second season instead leaving a nice package with a beginning, middle and crucially an end.
Despite the show departing on June 10, your last day to watch the show in full on Netflix is June 9 before it departs at midnight in your respective time zone. Where the show will end next is a mystery. Many of the JTBC K dramas that aired before 2017 are mostly streamed on Rakuten’s Viki in the United States.
The significance of this takedown (and why we’re making a special post for it) is, of course, that it carries Netflix Original branding. As we’ve learned over the years, just because it has the branding doesn’t mean it’s safe on Netflix.
Of man to man departure, which sets a precedent in years to come for other well-known JTBC shows that will also leave Netflix. That probably means Netflix won’t remain home to favorites like Forecast of love and weather† Itaewon class† The good detective or chief of staff as the decade comes to an end.
man to man won’t be the only Korean show to leave Netflix on June 10, either. 28 Moons† magic phone† my little babyand Singles Villa are also about to leave.
