"The Silent Sea" was totally off my radar but its definitely one ill watch..."Kingdom: Ashin of the North" though is the one im really looking forward to,i mean its Jun Ji Hyun doh!

Looking at the money Netflix is putting up you have to figure the content it will give them is huge... with that you could make 20 films like Space Sweeper or 16 Kdramas like The Penthouse(and its budget was fairly high for a Kdrama)
