TikTok Debuts Its First-Ever Korean Drama
Video-sharing social networking service TikTok has teamed up with South Korea entertainment network tvN D to co-produce Korean drama Trap. The drama, starring Kim Dong Han, will allow fans from Singapore to watch hidden clips and communicate with the main characters over TikTok. Its first episode will be launched on 30 July 2020, with 12 episodes in total.
A mix of romance and thriller, the series centers around university students in their twenties and unfolds the intricate story of love, temptation and betrayal. Parts of the story that cannot be told through the main episodes, such as the inner conflict and intimate feelings of the protagonists, will be released as hidden clips on TikTok.
At the beginning of the drama, the leading characters each create a TikTok account and actively engage on the platform, including following their friends and lovers on TikTok and liking their videos. TikTok takes it a step further by creating an immersive experience for the audience. After viewing the drama, fans can look forward to communicating with the main characters on TikTok and involve themselves even deeper into the story.
