Busan: Web Cartoons ‘Designer,’ ‘Christmas with Jam’ Tops E-IP Awards

Hatchling’s “Christmas with Jam” and Lucid’s “Designer” shared top prizes at the Entertainment Intellectual Property Market, part of Busan International Film Festival’s Asian Film Market. “Jam” is a web cartoon about the friendship between an evil spirit in a dog’s shape and the dog’s owner. The two awards were sponsored by major South Korean film studio Showbox.

From Book to Film, a program for intellectual properties in book format, Park Mark-rye and Kim Yu-ra’s family comedy “Makrye Park- I Can’t Go Just Yet” won the Showbox award along with Kim Sung-hui’s romantic comedy “A Killer Lives Nextdoor.” “Killer” also won the audience award.

The Tory Comics Awards were presented to two web cartoons: “Jam” and “Mr. 2,” and two novels: “The Flower Bloomed by the Cloud” and “Press Jump to End the World.”

A thriller drama web cartoon “Lucks” won the Union Super IP award, sponsored by Union Investment Partners.

E-IP market was launched in 2015 to showcase original web series, web novels and web comics that are adaptable across multiple media platforms such as film and other form of media.
