AIMC, a unit of K-drama production company Astory, said in a statement shared with Forkast that it plans to establish an NFT project called “Extraordinary Whales Club” to engage fans of the show and increase public awareness of ASD.
The company will also set up a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) to raise charity funds to support ASD.
Extraordinary Attorney Woo tells the story of an autistic lawyer who’s fond of whales and often finds enlightenment from the creatures when she deals with legal cases.
The Korean entertainment industry is actively entering the Web 3.0 space. In May, the Sandbox said it partnered with Studio Dragon, a K-drama production company behind titles Crash Landing on You, Sweet Home and Kingdom: Ashin of the North, to build a K-drama metaverse.
