It’s been a long time coming.
In the early 1990s, Park Seoujins first hit Netflix.
It was a rare example of a Korean-American animated series, and was just the second Korean-language TV series in the company’s history.
The first, which was hosted by the late comedian Jang Sung Won, debuted in 1990.
That show also featured an Asian American cast, and, in 1991, a white female lead.
The show ended after eight seasons.
By that time, Netflix had become a global juggernaut, but its first Korean-speaking series, The Grandma Who Couldn’t Sleep, hadn’t yet launched.
It followed a white mother who discovers that her grandson, the Grandma, has dementia and is incapable of sleeping.
It also featured a black male lead.
“The Grandma who Couldn’T Sleep” was nominated for an Emmy in 1994, and then was canceled.
In a rare move, the show’s creator, Jang Jae Won, returned to the company to helm the first episode of its second season.
(Park Seoujin is credited with co-creating “The Magic of Grandma,” which won an Emmy, in 2017.)
Park Seojin became the first South Korean-born show creator to win an Emmy for his work on Netflix.
Netflix’s first Korean show, Park Hyun Jin, premiered in 1991.

The new season will be called “The Park Seokjin Show,” and will air in 2019.
The news comes after Netflix announced last month that it will be releasing a Korean documentary about a Korean American family’s struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.
Park Seunjin’s daughter, Park Jin Young, tweeted her thanks to Netflix.
“Thank you @netflix for making this possible!
I’m so proud of you for doing this for my mom and grandpa!”
Park Seungji, the founder of Park Jung Hwa, the Korean American-owned production company behind the first two seasons of Park Joon Seo, told Variety.
Netflix is not the first company to bring an Asian-American lead to its shows, but it is the first to make it a regular feature.
The company is known for its diversity in talent, but this is the most diverse cast Netflix has ever produced.
It will be up to Netflix to decide if this show will remain on the streaming service after 2019.
