* Japan’s first webtoon OST project
(→August 2022 research by taskey / Research under the category of “Project to create Webtoon OST” in Japan)
A joint project between taskey, which produces and develops original works for full-color vertical scrolling comics Webtoon, and record company King Records. Produced an OST (original soundtrack) that matches the webtoon story. We will publish a vertical music video on TikTok that makes use of the unique form of webtoon that advances by vertical scrolling.
The project name comes from the concept of combining “something” with scroll comics, such as Music & Scroll comics and Artist & Scroll comics. The first is the MV for the OST “too loved” from the Webtoon “Night After Divorce”, which has surpassed 7.2 million views on TikTok.
We are planning to produce various webtoon OSTs in the future. ▼ “& scroll” official TikTok account

Webtoon is a new format of full-color comics optimized for
smartphones, in which the story progresses through vertical scrolling. It is rapidly gaining popularity in Korea and around the world, and there are many webtoon-based dramas such as the popular drama “Itaewon Class”.

OST is an abbreviation for Original SoundTrack. In South Korea, songs that match the stories of webtoons are actively being created, and in recent years, webtoon OSTs have become so popular that they occupy half of the Korean hit charts. South Korea’s NAVER WEBTOON has a system that plays music for each webtoon story, which is one of the production methods.
