Let’s go on a trip to Gyeonggi Province through webtoon!

Gyeonggi Province and Gyeonggi Tourism Organization (GTO) has released Gyeonggi Daughter (Zombie Daughter Going on a Trip to Gyeonggi-do) for those who can’t visit Gyeonggi Province due to COVID-19. Through this webtoon, you can look around tourist attractions in Gyeonggi Province online.

This 8-episode webtoon will be released on every Thursday starting September 3 via NAVER WEBTOON (“Themed” category). The webtoon will introduce popular historic places of Joseon, such as Sambong Memorial, Museum of Silhak, Haengjusanseong Fortress, and Hwaseong Fortress in Suwon.

Gyeonggi Daughter is drawn by Lee Yun-chang well known for Time in Joseon and Zombie Daughter, who has a large fan base.

Time in Joseon is about a college student time-traveling to King Jeongjo’s reign of Joseon. Zombie Daughter shows the world where the zombie virus spreads. It is about the love of the father who is trying to protect his daughter that has become a zombie. Gyeonggi Daughter seems to have two stories merged. It is about the zombie daughter, her father and grandmother going on a trip to Gyeonggi Province together.

An official at the Gyeonggi Provincial Government said, “A majority of historical tourism consumers are people in their 40s or 50s. We planned this webtoon to attract interest in historic tourism from people in their 20s or 30s. Although residents in Gyeonggi Province can’t go on a trip because of COVID-19, I hope they can have fun with this webtoon.”

The Joseon part of the Historical Tour Itinerary in Gyeonggi Grand Tour (grand.ggtour.or.kr) of Gyeonggi Province and the GTO will be introduced through this webtoon. Gyeonggi Province will keep promoting its tourist attractions next year as well using webtoons which are familiar to the public.
