Netflix to launch first Korean variety show

Netflix is set to launch its first original Korean variety show Busted! I Know Who You Are, worldwide.

Busted! will launch on May 4 with two episodes released every week. The first season will consist of ten episodes.

The show is a new type of K-variety where seven main cast members position themselves as bumbling detectives that set out to solve a fun-filled mystery in each of the episodes.

Busted! is also filled with special appearances from guest stars in each of the episodes to help complete the story.

For the unscripted show, Netflix teamed up with producers Jang Hyuk-jae, Cho Hyo-jin, and Kim Ju-hyung of Company SangSang, who has had a successful track record in the K-variety scene.

Jang, Cho and Kim have took part in producing popular shows including Running Man and X-Man in Korea.

Since Netflix stated that it would commit to Korean originals in 2016, it has brought in a range of programming from the territory including stand-up, sitcoms and dramas.
