The popular K-Drama series from TvN, Chicago Typewriter, will be departing Netflix globally at the start of next month.
This period drama follows three resistance fighters in 1930s Korea, when Japan occupied large swathes of Korea. They’re bought back to life in the modern-day by a seemingly magical typewriter.
Chicago Typewriter aired back in April 2017 for a number of weeks and was described as a “mixed package of relationships and emotions, comedy and melodrama.” It came to Netflix as a number of TvN titles do under an expansive output agreement with the network and the studio behind the show, Studio Dragon. You have seen it host some of the most popular TvN dramas, including Crash Landing on You and Hospital Playlist. Reply 1988 will also soon be leaving Netflix.
Su-wan Jin wrote the series and Sangwoo Kim directed it. Yoo Ahin, Go Kyung Pyo, Lim Soojung, and Mi-seon Jeon were among the actors.
Since October 1, 2019, Netflix holds the rights worldwide to Chicago Typewriter. The series will be removed completely (all 16 episodes) by October 1, 2021.
The show will be removed from all Netflix regions that have it, including the United States, Latin America and Australia.
At this point, it’s worth pointing out that although the license is up and the series is due to leave, this could change. TvN and Netflix could choose to renew the license by October 1, or they may decide to extend it further. You should be ready to look for other ways to watch Chicago Typewriter in short- to mid-term.
