Singapore Social is a Netflix reality series, starring Nicole Ong, Mae Tan, Sukki Singapora, Vinny Sharp, and Paul Foster Tabitha Nauser. The show has been labeled under ‘sentimental’ and ‘docuseries’. If you haven’t yet heard of the series, Singapore Social takes a look into the lives of young Singaporeans as they try to make sense of their family, home, and romantic lives. It definitely has The Hills meets Keeping Up with the Kardashians vibes, but people have also compared it to Crazy Rich Asians because of the location. The show is set to air on November 22, 2019.
Framed by glitz, glamour, and expensive backdrops, the clip shows several young people struggling to deal with the drama in their lives. This involves parents’ expectations, relationship entanglements, sacrificing their happiness to stay competitive, and such. There is not much information available about the show and no other official details have been released except a short description and airing date.
In response to the trailer, commenters were mostly confused, as they felt that the show was barely representative of Singapore and Singaporeans. In fact, we found that many of the comments are negative which are as follows: goldwinc, wrote: “Wtf is this? Crazy Rich Asian: the reality show?” Elsewhere, jichuya commented: “Great. Another show about how Singapore is rich and doesn’t actually show our culture woohoo.” CatWhisperer said: “Not to be rude but I see no purpose for this and I’m a Singaporean myself. 🤦🏻♀️ Sorry, Netflix will totally skip this one!” There are some comments that we cannot show, yet we hope that the show will be appreciated by the audience.
Netflix has published a trailer on November 8, 2019, along with a short description, “Peer into the lives of young Singaporeans as they defy expectations and traverse the tricky terrain of career, romance, and family.” Check out the trailer above.
