A major South Korean TV series with crypto and blockchain-related topics is set to launch its production stage at the beginning of 2021, directed by Gemstone Film, in collaboration with firms in China and the United States.

South Korean Crypto-Related TV Drama Series ‘Pumping Time’ Is Set to Start in 2021

According to Financial News, “Pumping Time,†the tentative name for the drama series, is planned for a total of 10 seasons with 20 episodes per each one. The producers estimate that each episode will have a duration of 30 minutes.

Gemstone Film will allocate an ambitious budget of $2.7 million per episode. Although they didn’t provide full details on the drama series’s stories, the producers gave some hints about the topics to be featured, such as crypto-related frauds, blockchain technologies, and central bank digital currencies (CBDC).

K-Play Content financially backs the production, and the producers already hired Choi Wan-kyu, a well-known drama writer in South Korea, who will be leading the creative aspect of the drama series.

Financial News claims there are “top stars†from South Korea, China, and the US who are already in talks to work in the production, together with “celebrities in the existing cryptocurrency industry†who are expected to appear in cameos “for more fun.â€

The producers also stated they’re expecting to launch trailers that feature crypto and blockchain topics to educate people about the matter.

K-Pop Singers Also Featuring Crypto-Themed Series in South Korea

Similar productions have been made in South Korea, but this is the first one that allocates a whopping budget. Back on July 23, 2020, Cho Hyun-young, a K-pop singer and actress, was announced as the new member of the cast of a crypto-themed series that features a raid of a fictional local crypto exchange.

Pumping Time is set to be launched at any point in 2021, whose production will start in January 2021. However, it has been planned since “a long time ago,†said Financial News, but as happened with many TV productions across the globe, Gemstone Film halted the series’ production due to the current global circumstances in the wake of the pandemic.
