The 10-part Korean-language series marked 25.9 million hours of viewing for the week of March 7-13 to lead Netflix’s official top 10 list for non-English TV programs, according to the company.

The series debuted at No. 3 on the chart in its first week of release on Feb. 25 and rose to the top place in the following week.

It made the top 10 of the non-English TV category in 19 countries over the one-week period and ranked No. 1 in four countries, including South Korea.
