SEOUL, REPUBLIC OF KOREA – July 15, 2019 – Lezhin Entertainment (CEO Sung Eob Lee) is proud to announce a new partnership with “Lezhin Comics for SAMSUNG” in the Galaxy Store.
For Lezhin Entertainment, this launch is a step to strengthening the global presence of Lezhin Comics which offers webtoons in English, Japanese and Korean.
Lezhin Entertainment has been a pioneer in the webtoon industry since 2013 when it first launched in Korea. At a time when webtoons were free-to-read, Lezhin Comic’s premium model offered creators more options in monetizing their work. A year later, Lezhin Entertainment was awarded the “Prime Minister’s K-Internet Award” for establishing a premium webtoon ecosystem, and in 2015 Lezhin Comics launched in the US.
More recently in 2017, Lezhin Entertainment saw their revenue from overseas sales hit 10 billion won. Their star continued to rise in 2018 when sales in the US alone hit 10 billion won and the Lezhin Comics app toppled mainstays like DC and Marvel by ranking no. 1 on Google’s “Top Grossing Apps” in the comics category. Overseas, Lezhin Entertainment’s partnerships with foreign publishers have brought graphic novels to the European market.
To celebrate this launch in the Galaxy Store and the next step in North American and European markets, all users who download “Lezhin Comics for SAMSUNG” will receive approximately USD 9 worth of Bonus Coins once they log in.
Lezhin Entertainment’s CEO, Sung Eob Lee said, “I’m excited to see ‘Lezhin Comics for SAMSUNG’ launch and cement our position in the global market. This partnership gives Lezhin Comics a firm position overseas with the potential to go even further while we continue to work towards publishing more exciting and engrossing webtoons.”
