Now That We've All Seen "Squid Game," What Are Some Other Non-English Shows People Should Watch?

·1 min read

By now, you've must have heard of Netflix's hit drama series Squid Game. It's one of the most streamed shows on the platform of ALL TIME and has been No. 1 on the trending bar for weeks.


One reason why it's so great that a show like this is all anyone can talk about is because it's in Korean! I love that a non-English show is everyone's current obsession.


It makes me wonder how many other foreign language shows have slipped through the cracks...

Golden Globes

Like Elite — a Spanish teen drama that somehow is better than Riverdale, Gossip Girl, AND Pretty Little Liars...combined!


Plot summary: "When three working-class teens enroll in an exclusive private school in Spain, the clash between them and the wealthy students leads to murder."

Or Alice in Borderland — a Japanese sci-fi thriller that left me on the edge of my seat.

Plot summary: "An aimless gamer and his two friends find themselves in a parallel Tokyo, where they're forced to compete in a series of sadistic games to survive."


Or Mismatched — a Hindi romance that made me believe in a thing called love.


Plot summary: "After a disastrous setup by their families, two teens strike up a tentative friendship at their summer program — but deeper feelings aren't far behind."
