After the OTT advent, the way we consume content and the quantity of consumption have all changed and how.
There is a lot of content to consume for anyone.
But lately, there is a problem that most of us are facing.
There always seems like a dearth of good Hindi shows/movies.
For a Bollywood junkie like me, I am tired of waiting for new content to turn up every now and then. Of course, I know that it is not possible for new shows and movies to be made every week to our whims and fancies.
But kya kare, Yeh dil maange more!
This hole of finding good shows and movies has opened doors for us viewers to check out international shows. Since the lockdown, most of us have begun exploring content from other countries whether it is Turkish, American, Pakistani, and now Korean shows.

Recently, my new favorite has been binging on Korean shows. Also, for the fact that Korean shows are usually 16-24 episodes only. So, it’s short yet impactful.
