[HanCinema's News] Original Webtoon Version of "Space Sweepers" Released Internationally


On February 8th the "Space Sweepers" webtoon made its worldwide debut on four platforms, having premiered on Kakao Webtoons in Korea last May. The "Space Sweepers" webtoon adaptation is appearing on Piccoma in Japan, Tapas in North America, Kakao Page Indonesia in Indonesia, and Delitoon in France. The timing was specifically designed to coincide with the release of the "Space Sweepers" movie on Netflix, which debuted worldwide on February 5th.


Plans are also underway to release the "Space Sweepers" webcomic in other territories, including Taiwan and Thailand. The "Space Sweepers" webtoon is currently up to thirty nine chapters, although only twenty of them are currently available to read for free in South Korea. Eight chapters are currently available to read without restriction in English on Tapas with more to come.

The "Space Sweepers" webtoon has had 5.5 million cumulative confirmed views. It comes from Writer Hong, whose many webtoon credits also include "The Cat Funeral" which was adapted into a film which also credits Writer Hong as the screenwriter. Writer Hong has spoken about he worried regarding how a blockbuster sci-fi webtoon could properly be adapted. Writer Hong has expressed interest in viewer reaction to the multi-genre mix which focuses on a spaceship crew that deals in space junk.
