Connect on Line Webtoon With Independent Artists
Line Webtoon is a Korean service where you can find webcomics in English, many of them translated by fans. After the manhwa industry collapsed between 1990 and 2010, JunKoo Kim came with the idea that comics that are tall and scrollable, to be easily read on the Internet, are the next thing. Line Webtoon was launched by Naver Corporation in 2005, after JunKoo Kim convinced them that their Naver search engine (similar to Google, but in South Korea) will be a bigger attraction if online visitors used their Naver service to read digital comics online. He named named them “Webtoons” – they are drawn in colour, some have music, and can be easily read on mobile phone, by scrolling down, using Webtoons app.
Line Webtoon launched their service in U.S and worldwide in 2014. Since then, numerous international artists uploaded their comics on their site. Webtoons are available in various genres: drama, fantasy, comedy, action, slice of life, superhero, thriller, sci-fi etc.
