A Storyteller Exlpores Beyond the Boundary of Cartoons and Webtoons: Jongbeom Lee at TEDxSeoul

Lee Jong Boem is a cartoonist. As his dream was to become a cartoonist since childhood, when as early as in elementary school, Lee has had in mind that any type of experience or study would be helpful for drawing cartoons. He, who studied psychology in university, currently publishes Dr. Frost, a serial cartoon on psychology, on Naver, a major web portal in Korea. Also, he is a host of an Internet radio program, Webtoon Radio, sharing stories about his work and life as a cartoonist.He incorporates various types of tools with his web cartoons, benefiting from the nature of webtoon media; he puts background music for his cartoon works and runs social media accounts of his cartoon characters, a kind of which traditional comic books failed to attempt. Continuing his exploration with possible new tools is what he takes as his challenge as an artist standing on the borders of new media."All storytellers seek for the right tools that will well express the stories they want to tell. A filmmaker shall need a big set and hundreds of staffs, but a cartoonist only needs to pour some black ink and draw a white dot. Cartoons that are a combination of texts and images is a low budget medium attractive enough for an individual to use, but with the transformation into webtoon, it is becoming even more powerful.TEDxSeoul 4th Event '?'
