  7. 7 : KDramaMama Says:

    Ommo…. just checked KBS America schedule for week of 9/16 and see that they are starting a rerun of “The Miracle We Met” drama instead of Camelia drama. Then checked Netflix site and saw Cameiia is on their list of kdramas being shown. Did Netflix get the exclusive rights to show this ahead of over-the-air, again? Can any other US viewers confirm this who view KBS over-the-air in their cities.
