Cosplay and Cartoons at Seoul Comic World


There's no doubt that cartoons are loved all around the world.  Comic books and animated television shows conjure up images of childhood, Saturday mornings, and spent allowances.  Yet, there are few places where cartoon culture is as prevalent as Eastern Asia.  In Korea, comics are taken to a whole new extreme.


Asuka-ish Bar Mural

Nipples AND camel toe in a single giant wall mural? Oh you spoil me Korea!

This is part of a weird mural in the hallway of a random bar building in Sillim.  Anyone that knows the Anime Neon Genesis Evangelion should get the same familiar feeling I did when I saw this.  I’m sure the pose is copied too, but the dress is totally Asuka’s famous yellow sun dress…. actually since the painting has a red jacket on it I wonder if the pose is copied from Misato with Ritsuko’s hair or something.  AH I AM A NERD.


Batman’s #1 fan

While shopping for some vintage toys online I cam across this amusing Korean Batman puzzle for about 9,000won ($9)

Yes that is batman, maybe joker…not sure who the green guy is.  Wait a sec tho, who the heck is the anime girl in the front???

haha it looks like she is swooning over Batman and he is about to attack her face.

Best puzzle ever, thanks Korea.

In case you are wondering, it does say “Batman” in Korean.
