Netflix’s latest cinematic offering, My Name Is Loh Kiwan, continues to stir hearts worldwide, securing the top spot in the Netflix Global TOP 10 Non-English Films chart in its second week of release. The film weaves a poignant tale of a North Korean defector, Lok Kiwan, who arrives in Belgium carrying his last hope for life, and Marie, a woman who has lost her reason to live, as they find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other.

As of Wednesday, My Name Is Loh Kiwan has not only captured the number one position on Netflix’s Global TOP 10 Movies (Non-English) but has also proven its widespread appeal by featuring in the TOP 10 lists across 31 countries, including South Korea, Portugal, Peru, Venezuela, Malaysia, and Turkey, according to the Netflix TOP 10 website.

The film’s success is attributed to its compassionate portrayal of strangers at life’s crossroads and the authentic, heartfelt performances by its cast. Critics and viewers alike, both domestically and internationally, have lavished praise. Fans have expressed their deep emotional connection to the film, with comments like “I was completely engrossed,” “The warm feelings linger long after the film ends,” “Wish there were more films like this,” and “It taught me again what it means to truly embrace someone.”

International audiences have echoed this sentiment, leaving reviews such as “A film that stays in your mind long after the credits roll,” “The power of love to illuminate the darkest corners of life and transcend barriers,” “Song Joong Ki’s career-defining performance. A magical film that perfectly depicts the struggles and barriers faced by refugees,” and “Kudos to everyone’s performance! Within minutes, Song Joong Ki disappears, and only Kiwan remains.”
