Description
The 7th batch in the Cartoon Series features Iljimae (a character created by Ko Woo-young) and Kkeobeongi (a character created by Kil Chang-duk).

Kkeobeongi.
The name Kkeobeongi conjures up an image of a youngster who is not bright in any sense, and frequently comes up with unpredictable ideas, but yet who is loved by many because of his beguiling innocence and kind heart. Kil Chang-duk portrays this kind of a boy, who always has his eyes open halfway and carries a large cut-off in his hair, obviously left by an unskilled hairdresser, as a never-to-be-missed evidence of his stupidity. Through the character, Kil successfully achieves two things: drawing laughter from the character's daily life at home and at school, and giving small yet "touching" lessons to kids. Kil had continuously depicted typically funny cartoons by creating such outstanding characters as "Jaedongi and Sunakjil" other than Kkeobeongi. Published as a popular series in two children's monthlies: "Manhwawangguk" and "Sonyeonjungang", Kkeobeongi typifies children's cartoons in the 1970's.
