This is your last chance to watch these movies, series, and K-Dramas before they leave Netflix Philippines this October.
It seems as if every day we find something new to watch and enjoy on Netflix. As seen with the uber success of Squid Games, the streaming service always has that next must-binge show or movie waiting in the wings. But as more titles enter Netflix, sadly, some have to leave as well. This can be mainly due to the fact that some of the content in Netflix have had their licensing agreements expire therefore are no longer going to be on the streaming service. There are some notable titles leaving Netflix Philippines this October from critically acclaimed films, classics, and adored action films. Here are the titles you need to see before they leave Netflix. (Note that the following titles are subject to change).
