Is it a sweet coincidence—The Sandbox is announcing their partnership to bring to metaverse—a South Korean drama series starring a witty, autistic, and high-functioning female attorney on International Women’s Day? If not, it’s a well-planned announcement.
Let’s dive deep to learn more about collaboration and its purpose.
About the collaboration
So, the show is quite popular, and in the drama, Woo Young Woo focuses on the whale while other animals act as a cue for her.
AIMC is launching an NFT project, ‘Extraordinary Whale Club,’ to raise autism awareness. Meanwhile, the project will also help them expand their IP-focused business portfolio.
What to expect from this collaboration?
AIMC and The Sandbox will recreate show locations, including the courtroom, Woo’s kimbap restaurant, and the Hanbada law firm office, which is amusing.
What’s the most exciting part of this collaboration?
The Sandbox and AIMC will design an exclusive K-themed space named the “K-verse.” This metaverse will be specializing in K-dramas in The Sandbox. You can walk around at the show location, play unique games, and enjoy the beautiful whale.
Furthermore, you can expect AIMC to partner with The Sandbox for various projects, including creating NFTs for entertainment IPs.
And with this partnership, The Sandbox will integrate Astory’s characters and stories into the metaverse. It will be an excellent opportunity to attract a broader audience to Web3 gaming. Most of the stories by the production firm Astory are already popular in Asia and North America.
Future expectations from this partnership
As the CEO of AIMC rightly said in the official announcement, “this collaboration with The Sandbox will open doors to future teamwork for the upcoming content IPs, including Extraordinary Attorney Woo”.
