True Beauty, Yumi’s Cells, and Itaewon Class. Do you know what these famous K-dramas have in common? Yes, they all came from a Webtoon series.

Webtoon, a popular form of digital comics in Korea, has been expanding its reach through adaptations of K-drama, movies and animations. It has gained significant attention among Filipinos due to its unique storytelling approach and accessibility.

The Korean Cultural Center is hosting a three-day free Webtoon workshop to share knowledge and know-how with aspiring Filipino artists and enthusiasts. Workshops will be held from 1 to 3 June led by Na Seung-hoon, illustrator of the hit Webtoon-turned-drama-and-animation Don’t Let Go of the Mental Rope.

The webtoon series has 2.9 billion accumulated views and is still ongoing on Naver Webtoon.

Through the workshops, digital artists and enthusiasts will surely gain valuable insights into the history and state of webtoons in today’s world and refine their artistic skills and techniques.

Interested individuals can register through bit.ly/WebtoonWorkshop Registration until 26 May.

To cap off the three-day event, KCC will also be having a postcard design contest with the theme “Our Friendship: Memorial of Korean War Filipino Veterans” in honor of the upcoming Korean War Filipino Veterans Commemoration on 25 June. Winner’s postcard will be printed and distributed at KCC and other related cultural agencies.
