Chaweon Koo, Spellbound, TikTok, WitchTok

Chaweon Koo is a writer of the intersection of pop culture, the occult, and futurism. Her Tik Tok is one of the most popular occult accounts on the platform, and she also interviews some of the most distinguished occultists and witches in the English-speaking world on her YouTube, Witches & Wine. In 2021, she has helped co-facilitate “crypto-rituals,” which are public magic rituals done directly on the Ethereum blockchain. Her new book Spell Bound, available as a hardcover in May 2022, has over 60 beautiful illustrations specifically commissioned for the book, and details her journey from an atheist witch into one of the most visible East Asian practitioners of both Eastern and Western occult traditions.
