Samsung smartphones dominated new trending Netflix K-dramas

If you've been hooked to a k-drama like the rest of us, an obvious product placement wouldn't escape your eyes. And if you're a tech geek like us, a new smartphone model flawlessly weaved into an episode is asking for a feature.

It's smart advertising. K-dramas are not only popular in Korea, but also the rest of the world. And viewers who get hooked often try to emulate the characters they admire, including getting the same smartphone.

Author's note: happened to me with Lee Bona from The Inheritors, Galaxy Note 3 with flip case ring a bell? And who better grab this opportunity than South Korea-born Samsung.

Easter egg hunt? Try spotting these Samsung smartphones in your favorite K-dramas.
