Is there a way to find out using the API what is the original language of the tv show? Currently empty Accept-Language returns "en" language by default, but it does not show any info that the original language of the show is actually Korean. For example this show https://api.thetvdb.com/series/134681

I don't think we return original language of a series on the API — this might be something we can expose on v4 of the API. I'll add it to the list of requested endpoints.

Can this be added to v3 because if there is no English poster and poster is in Korean, the API does not return any poster image and there is no way of knowing what language has the poster image.

The new API (no ETA) is going to return the official language for each show and the poster in that language on the base record. The extended record will include all artwork and each will have a language attached where appropriate.
