Lookism was a hit Korean Webtoon/Manhwa that became a hit in 2014. Fans had fantasized about seeing this popular web-comic animated. Sadly it is not a manga, and mostly manhwas and webtoons get live-action adaptations. A webtoon got a Japanese Anime adaptation before, the Webtoon Tower of God. Netflix made the impossible because the Webtoon Lookism became Netflix’s first Korean Animation. Netflix is no stranger to adapting non-Japanese materials into Animation. They first did it with the Filipino graphic novel Trese. I am unsure if this will count as Anime despite the art style because this is a 100% Korean production. Let’s invent a new term for this new media. I am going to call it K-Nime.
