Looking For Seomyeon John

Busan :

Back in 2003, when there were only two subway lines and every Busan traveler had to make their way through Seomyeon, there was a man named Seomyeon John. He lived in the station, and devoted his life to ‘helping foreigners.’ He was well known at the time, and got a cover story in the foreigner magazine that came before Haps. But I haven’t seen him in a decade, and can’t find anyone who remembers him.

In a hope to round up someone who knows something, or just hear another Seomyeon John story, I’m sharing the complete 68 page graphic novel I made about him. If you know anyone who was here in the early aughts, please show this to them! I’d love to know what happened to my friend.

    That was a great read, thanks! I thought something was familiar with the artwork, and then on going to your website realised that I'd seen your "Learn to read Korean in 15 minutes". Loving your work!
