Korean Short Film Lands Series Adaptation


Viddsee Studios is adapting the Korean short film Human Form into a series called Alienated for launch on Mediacorp’s platforms in Singapore next year.

The six-part show is being produced by Viddsee Studios alongside Korean filmmaker Doyeon Noh, the creator of Human Form. The viral short follows an 18-year-old girl, struggling with societal pressures, as she strikes a deal with an unusual entity that allows her to experience different lives through alternate universes.

Alienated marks Mediacorp’s first series adaptation of a Korean short film, and is one of the fruitful outcomes of our first Creatives Assembly call for ideas exercise held in 2021,” said Angeline Poh, chief customer and corporate development officer at Mediacorp. “This exciting project with Viddsee points to Mediacorp’s continual efforts to join hands with partners from the creative ecosystem to strengthen our storytelling, while using data-driven insights to build upon successful concepts and create impactful stories for our audiences.”

“As part of our mission to empower Asian storytelling, we started Viddsee Labs to leverage on what we do best as a storyteller ecosystem to drive change and decentralize how IPs and talents can be discovered—growing toward our vision of creating more concrete opportunities for Asian storytellers,” added Derek Tan, co-founder and chief commercial officer at Viddsee. “We are glad to have found a gem like Doyeon and his brilliant ideas, while being able to work with entertainment partners to produce quality stories with our tried and tested IP process.”

Human Form landed more than 7 million views globally.
