The King Sejong Institute Foundation in Seoul has produced a webtoon series in five languages to help non-Koreans better understand Korean culture.
Twenty-four folktales, including “Kyunwoo and Jiknyo” and “The Sun and the Moon,” will be published as a weekly webtoon series ― digital cartoons regularly released through portal sites ― on the foundation’s website in Korean, English, Chinese, Japanese and Spanish according to the Korea Herald.
“We developed a webtoon series, with content that is unique to Korea, and other language learning content, for those who want to learn the language more easily and freely,” said Song Hyang-geun, the president of the foundation.
