MIPJunior Spotlight: Daewon Media


An innovative live-action series for the 7- to 12-year-old set, Daewon Media’s Armored Saurus tells the story of a boy named Jin who pilots a weaponized T-Rex and teams up with the Armored Saurus squad to defend Earth from invading fully-mechanized extraterrestrial dinosaurs.

Currently in post-production, the series is set for delivery early next year.

“A toy expert who used to be a CEO of Sega Toys and his team have been involved in this project, and we are in discussions with a worldwide toy distributor,” says Marie Hwang, Daewon Media’s head of sales and acquisitions. From Daewon’s library, GON is available worldwide following on successful pickups from Netflix, DreamWorks Asia, TV Tokyo, EBS in Korea, Cartoon Network Asia, TVB in Hong Kong, YoYo TV in Taiwan and more.

Hwang adds, “We are looking to foster new relationships with clients from emerging markets at MIPCOM.”
