‘Tudum’ is not only synonymous with the excitement that one feels before watching anything Netflix–it has also become the name of the streaming giant’s most-awaited 24-hour virtual fan event where new releases and future line ups are unveiled for everyone to see and take note of! The free virtual event is a celebration of the Netflix fandom and has been created to share to its fans the latest news and updates on shows, films and specials within the Netflix universe.
This year, the global Tudum event, which was hosted and participated by Netflix talents and other celebrities, took place on September 24 and 25, 2022, where a number of notable reels and first looks were showcased via TikTok to present their upcoming titles.
At the Tudum event on this side of the world, hosts Choi Min-ho (co-stars of the upcoming series The Fabulous) and Cho Yi-hyun (All Of Us Are Dead) unveiled what’s in store for Asian viewers soon, such as:
Hellbound Season 2
Topping Netflix’s global series list following its release last November, fans of dark fantasy drama and the original webtoon series will be pleased to know that Hellbound will soon return for a second season. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of Season 2 to make the wait more bearable.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area Pt 2
As a fresh take on the fan-favorite Spanish series, the first part of Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area captured the magic of the original while giving audiences a flavor of a heist that is uniquely Korean – from the backdrop of the series set in a world where the two Koreas are close to reunification, to the Hahoe masks that date back to the 12th century.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area will soon make its comeback with more exciting action and secrets to be uncovered – catch a glimpse of this heart-pounding chase scene in Part 2.
Starring Minho from popular K-pop boy band SHINee and actress Chae Soo-bin (I Am Not A Robot, Sweet & Sour), The Fabulous follows four best friends as they chase their dreams alongside fashion’s elite while juggling demanding jobs, romantic dilemmas and wild nights on the town.
In the series, Minho plays Ji Woo-min, a freelance photo editor established in his profession and known for his attractive appearance. However, he struggles with finding passion for his work. Things change when he encounters Pyo Ji-eun (played by Chae Soo-bin), a PR manager for luxury brands, and the two find themselves in a blossoming romance.
Aside from the compelling plot which takes a hyper realistic look on love, friendship and dreams, tune into this new series for a stunning visual feast!
