[TALK OF THE TOWN]
Hit KBS drama series “The King of Baking: Kim Tak-goo” and “Bolts & Blip,” a 3-D television animation series widely sold abroad, received presidential honors in a ceremony on Monday that thanked cultural content producers for their achievements. In its 2010 Republic of Korea Content Award ceremony, the state-run Korea Creative Content Agency named this year’s winners of presidential, prime ministerial and culture ministerial awards, which are given to those who contribute to the overseas boom of Korean pop culture.
The winner of presidential recognition in the field of cartoons, animation and animation characters was “Moss,” an Internet cartoon made into a film of the same title in 2010.
