Korean internet provider SK Broadband wants Netflix to pay for costs associated with increased network traffic, as more people in the region are streaming popular Netflix titles. Among the shows that went viral in the country recently is a South Korean TV series that shot at the top of Netflix's charts globally. That's Squid Game, a horror show launched just a few weeks ago. It might seem ironic that SK is suing Netflix to pay traffic costs, given that a Korean show is a the top of Netflix's charts in Korea and other markets. But it's only a coincidence that SK's demands came up at a time when a Korean show has topped Netflix's charts.
