South Korea's largest cartoon festival is underway.
The 24th Bucheon International Comics Festival, hosted by the Korea Manhwa Contents Agency, runs virtually until September 12th, under the theme "new normal, new connection", underlining how the pandemic has changed lifestyles.
The nine-day festival includes online fan meetings with webtoon artists, showcases of their new comics, and exhibitions held mainly on YouTube.
A concert will also be streamed online on Friday, to recognize many disabled artists who've dazzled fans with their talents through web-based cartoons.
