INTI makes waves online with Korean drama parody video

Listen to this article

DOTS INTI main image( – Riding on the wave of the Korean drama series craze, INTI International University & College recently released a two-part comedic parody video series called ‘Descendants of the Sun -#Macha vs #Taeyang”.

The video centres around a boy who finds himself attracted to a girl and wants to impress her but is constantly side lined by Jake, a handsome Korean pop-star looking boy who seems to have the upper hand at everything that transpires during their visit to the girl’s home.

The video creatively infused some of the most memorable moments from the original drama series into the video which ardent fans of the series would recognize.

“The Korean drama scene has always been a popular hit among young Malaysians – from the onset of series like Winter Sonata to more recent ones like My Love from the Star. With Descendants of the Sun having such a huge following, we got our imaginative wheels running and took memorable scenes from the drama series, recreated it with a local feel and set the tone for a comedic love story,” shared Timothy Johnson, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Products & Partnerships of INTI International University & Colleges.
