K-Drama Today’s Webtoon 2022

This drama is based on manga series “Juhan Shuttai!” by Naoko Matsuda which was first published on 2022-November in monthly Japanese seinen manga magazine Monthly Big Comic Spirits.

It’s tells the story of On Ma Eum (Kim Se Jung), a former judo athlete, who struggles to adapt to her new job as webtoon editor after retiring as an athlete due to an injury.

This is truly the age of content. The Korean webtoon market is now worth close to 1 trillion won (US$1.2 trillion).
The webtoon market has become an inseparable part of the daily lives of people today.
From 10 million-viewer movies to games, plays, dramas, and OTT platform videos
There is no area of content where webtoons do not come and go.
Students come to school every morning and say, “Did you see that webtoon that floated by today?” and greet them with the words, “I’m so glad you did.
On the subway or bus to and from work, many office workers start their day by watching webtoons or
relax after a long day of work.

However, compared to this deep penetration of webtoons into our lives
we don’t know much about “the people who make webtoons.
We don’t know how much trouble and effort a webtoon artist goes through to draw a single cut, or how much effort it takes to
how many people in charge struggle to upload one webtoon in a timely manner.

This drama depicts the vivid reality of the webtoon industry and at the same time
webtoon editors and other webtoon writers, munhasen, aspiring students, etc.
It will vividly show the diverse group of people in the webtoon industry and their intense daily routines.
