'Disney Plus' struggles to keep subscribers in Korea

AKP STAFF

Walt Disney Company's online streaming multimedia service Disney+ (Disney Plus) is struggling in South Korea. 

Disney Plus launched its service in South Korea back in November of 2021. At first, many subscribed to the service with an enticing list of contents produced by Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic

However, according to the latest report by IGAWorks, the streaming service could not keep its initial subscribers as it saw a steep drop in subscriber count. 

On November 12th, 2021, the number of daily active users was 590,000. On November 21st, 2021, that number dropped to 400,000. Two months after on January 28th, 2022, the number of daily active users was 230,000. 

Meanwhile, Disney Plus seeks redemption this year by releasing more original series such as 'Rookie Cops', starting Kang Daniel and Chae Soo Bin.

It’s because they don’t have a lot of shows. I only got Disney+ for the mandalorian. Besides that the shows they already have don’t really entice me to stay.

I Also Have Disney+. But I Don’t Even Watch It, Because They Do Not Have Any Really Great Content On It. Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, And Netflix Have Really Great Content On Their Streaming Platforms. But Not Disney+.
