'A World after 18' Takes a Look at Adult Cartoons in Korea

"A World after 18" written by Kim Bong-suk & Kim Eu-chan (published by C&C Media) delves into the domestic 'adult' (i.e. adult content) cartoon and animation business.
It focuses in on the characteristics of Korean 'adult' culture and gives an overview to the restricted entertainment allowed to those over the age of 18.
The book has five chapters which cover topics such as why adult culture exists, the history of Japanese cartoons and products, their attraction to Korean audiences, and the Korean adult-content cartoon market itself.
The book is more a source for enthusiasts of Japanese pop culture than a critical culture study of present adult-content films and cartoons in the domestic market.
The book is available at bookstores across the nation.
