Do you know who this is?
That’s right! It’s Pororo! I’m the Pororo Mayor, Park Won Soon.
Yesterday, I attended the opening ceremony of the Seoul International Cartoon and Animation Festival along with children and a variety of cartoons and animated characters. Children from all over Seoul came to the event.
From now on, Seoul will develop the Namsan Mountain area as an international attraction based on cartoons and animations. A cartoon museum and a cartoon street have already been created, with even more big changes in store for this area. I believe that a “Korean Wave” of animated films and cartoons will sweep the world. This is true “creative economy.” Just wait, you will see I’m right!
