New data released by FlixPatrol on December 21st has shown that the new Netflix drama "Sweet Home" has cracked the international top 10 for the streaming platform. This is the first appearance of "Sweet Home" in the Netflix top 10 and, registered as it is on December 20th, happened in the third day of the supernatutrally themed drama's availability. The drama appears to have risen in the ranks due to strong recommendations from various viewers.
"Sweet Home" ranked as the number one drama in eight different regions on December 20th. These include South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and the Phillipines. Outside of Asia "Sweet Home" was also the number one drama in Peru and Kuwait. In addition to these number one rankings, "Sweet Home" was also in the top ten for forty-two different regions. These included Saudi Arabia at number two, the Arab Emirates at number three, Turkey at number seven, and the USA at number eight.
The ascendance of "Sweet Home" to the Netflix international top ten coincides with "Start Up" dropping out of that same chart. "Start Up" has shown excellent presence on Netflix ever since it started airing on the platform. However, "Start Up" was made for television, while "Sweet Home" is an original Netflix production.
