A tiny production company named for Father Christmas is the latest beneficiary of a rally in Korean entertainment stocks, as investors scour Netflix Inc. hits for trading ideas following the success of “Squid Game”.

Seoul-based Studio Santa Claus Entertainment Co. surged by its 30% daily limit after its “My Name” series ranked No. 4 among Netflix TV shows as of Sunday, just two days after its release, according to streaming ratings firm FlixPatrol. Squid Game, Netflix’s biggest series launch ever, remains the top-ranked show globally.
