KT's online comic content platform "Ktoon" is making bigger inroads into the Chinese market. KT announced on April 16 that it held a Ktoon showcase event in Beijing on April 14 and launched in-depth discussions on how to promote cooperation with local companies.
During the event, KT briefed about the strengths of the webtoon platform, while displaying Ktoon's popular characters and contents, plus business meetings with local companies.
About 50 local companies, including China's online portal Sohu and China's largest webtoon platform Kuaikan, attended the event. Korean-made webtoons made entry into the Chinese market in 2015 through partnership with China's webtoon platform Migudm.
During this event, KT signed a deal with Kuaikan to supply its contents, including "Dugeun Dugeun Love Flower" and "How to Peel out the Triangle Kimbap." The two parties will promote joint marketing and exchange of information in various areas.
