Netflix Reveals First Korean Original Animation


Netflix is introducing its first Korean original animation, Larva Island, a slapstick comedy series from TUBAn.

Larva Island first premiered in 2011. The International Emmy Kids Award-nominated show follows the adventures of two main characters named Red and Yellow on an abandoned island. It will only be available on Netflix.

“Great stories can travel beyond borders, including great stories from Korea,” said Aram Yacoubian, the international originals director for Kids & Family at Netflix. “Larva Island brings back Larva’s beloved characters, Red and Yellow, who, with the help of some new friends, are certain to once again enthrall audiences of all ages in Korea and beyond.”
