Comic Journal application opens

By Chung Ah-young

The Korea Manhwa Contents Agency has launched a mobile application called "Comic Journal" available in Korean and English.


It is designed to further promote Korean comic art through information exchanges about them and reinvigorate its presence on the open market.

The application provides diverse pieces of information such as the latest works, classics and masterpieces and an interactive channel with cartoonists through SNS which enables users to share their thoughts and views with their favorite artists.

The application holds different content in Korean and English language versions. The former has more interactive programs and real-time news while the latter shows an introduction and an anthology which includes 100 Korean comic masterpieces.

The English anthology introduces "007 Boy from Outer Space" by Kim Sam, "A Baby Dinosaur Dooley" by Kim Soo-jung, "Bandit Lim" by Lee Doo-ho and "Fighter in the Wind" by Bang Hak-gi and others.

The agency will connect the application with its digital comic archive (www.kcomics.com) which carries various articles, feature stories and other informative items.

"The opening of the application is expected to contribute to boosting the consumption of Korean comic products and encourage the public interest in the genre through its diverse content such as comic reviews of new works, comic news and interview articles with renowned cartoonists," Oh Jae-rok, president of the agency, said in a statement.
