KC Global Media Launching Hakka Multimedia Project


KC Global Media is set to launch a new and original docutainment multimedia production in partnership with the Hakka Affairs Council.

Set in Taiwan, the one-hour special Secrets of the Raknus Selu Trail is hosted by British photographer Chris Stowers and Taiwanese food and travel writer Danny Wen Shi-Kai. It takes viewers on a journey through the forgotten paths of the iconic trail, delving into customs and stories of the Hakka heritage and revealing the culture’s impact on modern Taiwan.

Secrets of the Raknus Selu Trail will premiere on AXN’s channel on September 27 across Asia and will see a worldwide release on AXN Asia’s YouTube channel on September 28.

In addition to the TV program, a four-part podcast series of the same title and with the same hosts will air on September 27 across such audio streaming platforms as Spotify, Apple Podcast, SPH Radio’s AWEDIO app, Astro Radio’s SYOK app and International Community Radio Taipei (ICRT) Radio’s app. Special guests will include Radio DJ Andrew Zhan and Radio DJ Joseph Lin.

Derek Wong, VP and head of production and creative for KC Global Media, said: “Being chosen by the Hakka Affairs Council to produce and document Taiwan’s most iconic tourist destination has been a privilege and a humbling experience, and this project reinforces our brand as a regional creative and original production force as we share the heart and soul of the Hakka people. Through this ‘docutainment’ special, we offer a holistic learning experience that combines the elements of documentary film with an entertainment edge for our Asian audiences through the visual, online and audio space. We look forward to producing more of such meaningful projects in the future.”
