The romantic comedy “Doctor Slump,” starring Park Shin-hye and Park Hyung-sik, debuted at No. 1 on Netflix’s weekly chart for non-English TV series, the global streaming service said Wednesday.

JTBC’s ongoing series garnered 2.9 million total views during the Jan. 29-Feb. 4 period, and was No. 1 in nine countries, including Hong Kong and Malaysia.
