Insights into Korea's Sudden Rise

Webtoon “Jungle High”

Seoul has become a major center for the production of webtoons over the last five years. These highly creative visual narratives express with particular vividness the experiences of young Koreans. The webtoon “Jungle High” is remarkable example that describes daily life for Korean youth inside a ruthlessly competitive Korean high school. The actual experience of youth, as opposed to the myths shown in the media, is portrayed in an original and compelling manner in this webtoon.

Jungle High

A Gifted High School for the College Entrance Exams


 
“I have my will here in my hand right now”

“If I were to try and explain this will, I would have to start with an introduction to our high school.”


 

 

“Our high school is a gifted school for the college entrance exams, a private school known as “Jungle High”

Our school motto is “The strong devour the weak”

and our class motto is “Survival of the Fittest.”
