Netflix K-drama Extraordinary Attorney Woo launches NFTs to raise autism awareness

The production team behind the popular Korean TV drama series and Netflix show “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” will launch a collection of NFTs for free to raise awareness about autism.

The series tells the story of Woo Young-woo, a female lawyer with autism and an IQ of 164. Working at a prestigious law firm, she is fond of whales and often finds enlightenment from the creatures when dealing with legal cases. 

The NFTs, based on the Polygon blockchain, are being airdropped to fans through “Extraordinary Whales Club” between August 7 and 12 to coincide with the Korea Blockchain Week that runs from August 7 to 14. 

The project was launched by AMIC, a subsidiary of Korean drama production company Astory. 

AMIC chief executive Han Se-min said: “It is the many whales that give strength, courage and inspiration to the difficult life of autistic lawyer Woo Young-woo. We are preparing NFTs to give courage and hope to people around the world who suffer from the same illness as the main character.”

AIMC has also partnered with the Web3 community platform CIETY and NFT project SCREENA on NFTs, marketplace development and community management. It also has plans to develop a Web3 project under the Extraordinary Whales Club and launch a decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO) for charitable purposes.
