From the Koren Publishing company Munhakdongne:
KO Woo-Young (1939-2005) was a cartoonist who helped Koreans break away from the prejudice that cartoons are for kid only. KOs cartoons were a cultural phenomenon, and were filled with satires, humors and twists and satisfied grownups appetite for good and funny cartoons that had not only pictures but also a story.

Ko Woo-Young died on April 25, 2005 from Cancer.
