South Korean manhwa artist dies at just 47

CNN announced another creator from overseas, Kim Jung Gi, has died at the age of 47:
What takes many artists weeks or months to create took Kim Jung Gi mere hours.

The acclaimed South Korean artist crafted sprawling, intricately detailed scenes with unbelievable speed, often before a live audience. He narrated as he worked, sharing his process with his rapt fans as he created a fully realized piece of art before their eyes.

Kim, an influential comic artist, died suddenly this week, his US agent told CNN. He was 47.

The artist was in Paris for an exhibition of his work when he experienced chest pains, shortly before he was meant to fly to New York, where he was supposed to appear at Comic Con. He was transported to a hospital, where he died, according to a statement shared on his verified social media accounts.

A lifelong artist, Kim got his start drawing in the South Korean comics publication Young Jump before he created his own manhwa, a style of South Korean comic, called "Tiger the Long Tail," or "TLT."
It's definitely sad when a foreign talent leaves the world at much too young an age. Let's hope his work gets recognition to see what it's like.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
