Webtoon and Wattpad shared some pretty exciting news late last night! They have an entirely new slate of series rolling out in mid January through a collaboration with entertainment lifestyle platform company HYBE! This will be a part of Webtoon’s previously announced Super Casting project. It is a partnership with global entertainment companies, like HYBE, to create webcomics and web novels. Super Casting is the program that brought Batman: Wayne Family Adventures to life and I can’t stop thanking them! But now we have three new series coming to life!

The first HYBE original story will be 7Fates: CHAKHO which will be in collaboration with BTS! The dynamic story follows seven young men bound by fate. They will be put through a series of trials and tribulations where they will fight to become a unified group to unlock their destiny. The story reimagines traditional Korean tiger tales and a mythological world of wild beasts. The series is set to drop onto Webtoon and Wattpad starting January 14, 2022.

The second series will be DARK MOON in collaboration with ENHYPEN. This series mixes urban fantasy and teen romance but promises confrontation and confusion. Did we mention all the chemistry that will happen between a group of vampires, a pack of werewolves and a mysterious girl with a secret? This will be a part of a much larger series, with the first being titled DARK MOON: the Blood Altar. It promises a heroine with incredible abilities, youthful friendships and, of course, all the secrets. The first story will drop on Webtoon and Wattpad on January 15, 2022.

Finally, THE STAR SEEKERS will be a collaboration with TOMORROW X TOGETHER. The series will follow a group of young men in a pop band who live in a world where magic is part of everyday reality. They all awake one day to uncover that they possess dormant magical abilities. But how will they choose to use them? This fantastic tale features imaginary creatures, magic and a fun look at the world of entertainment! It will hit Webtoon and Wattpad on January 16, 2022!

All of these Webtoon and Wattpad series sound utterly fantastic! I can’t wait to be able to dive into these and see just how much K-POP inspiration we are going to see! And, I am also excited to see that both the Webtoon version and Wattpad version of the stories will be released simultaneously! Be sure to check back in as we get closer to the release date of the series! Which one are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
