Article: #1 character that Koreans like is 'this'

Source: Joongang Ilbo via Nate

1. [+409, -65] Everything except Dooly is irrelevant.

2. [+312, -39] Kakao Friends is a wall

3. [+273, -38] It's nice to see 3 of the top 10 characters are Korean. I hope the domestic market for characters continues to expand. Naver webtoons are on par with Japanese anime these days.

4. [+12, -1] Pokemon was popular when I was in elementary school. It's amazing that Pokemon is still #4 when I'm in my 30's.

5. [+12, -5] Journalist-nim, you need to include Shinchan's white dog. More people prefer the white dog over Shinchan ㅠㅠ

6. [+11, -6] I don't really like Kakao Friends. I find Line characters cuter.
