A New Era of Webtoon

Co-organized by Co-organized by KOREA MANHWA CONTENTS AGENCY, TORYWORKS

During the past few years, Webtoon(comics optimized to mobile or internet) has been the most popular and successful resource for movie and TV series in Korea. An internet pop-corn content format has become a major resource for movie makers. All the while, the movie and TV series has been trying to cut into the internet market though the OTT format such as Netflix, Amazon and Hulu to compete with User-Created Contents. If Webtoon were to come across AI, animation, and game engine, would something arise? Would it be possible for Webtoon to become a new provider for the short format contents in the trend of consuming short, impulsive contents?
