PAPE POPO (by Sim Seung-hyeon), a cartoon essay more than 2.1 million copies of which have been sold in Korea since its first publication in 2002, will be made into an animated film for broadcasting.

"We have received funding support from the Korea IT Industry Promotion Agency (KIPA), an affiliate of the Ministry of Information and Communications, for the translation of the essay into an animated film, PAPE POPO Moving-Toon, with a total production budget of 520 million Korean won", Olive Nine Co., Ltd. announced on March 31.
