In collaboration with a Korea’s popular web portal site, Naver, and a global webtoon syndicate, Rolling Story, the Gallery Korea of the Korean Cultural Service New York is pleased to announce the first Webtoon exhibition in the United States. Webtoons, comics that are initially published exclusively on the web, have launched an innovative online cartoon culture. They can be enjoyed anywhere and anytime by simply going online or using a mobile app. The exhibition will showcase the diverse genres of webtoons including comedy, drama, fantasy, action, thriller, and romance. In addition to webtoons, the exhibition will introduce movies, TV dramas, musicals, animations, games, and commercial products based on Webtoons.
A curated selection of films adapted from webtoons will be shown in a special series at the Asia Society as a part of Korean Movie Night New York. Visit our film section for additional information on our ongoing movie screenings as well as our Webtoon series.
