The series, which stars Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo, Wi Ha-joon, Jung Ho-yeon, O Yeong-su, Heo Sung-tae, Anupam Tripathi and Kim Joo-ryoung, is streaming on Netflix. 

The huge success comes at the right time for Netflix amid a row over Dave Chappelle's latest stand-up that some viewers claimed was transphobic. 

The streaming service said that the show has 'pierced the cultural zeitgeist' in garnering a parody skit on Saturday Night Live featuring Rami Malek and Pete Davidson 

The row was over a group of Netflix employees who said Chappelle's show should be dropped from the streaming service. 

The word has been applied to JK Rowling before, who sparked outcry with a blogpost where she said she feared too many young people were transitioning because it had become trendy and encouraged on social media, not because the were genuinely transgender.
