North Korea[edit]

This article has nothing about North Korean animation, like [1], which appears to be primarily propaganda targeted at North Korean youth. Should animations such as these get a mention? 60.231.26.221 10:14, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Manhwa yeonghwa[edit]

I've seen Korean animation being called Manhwa Yeonghwa... and it was by a Korean speaker from a magazine which printed anime stuff, but the editor was Korean. The person asked the readers to call Korean animation properly. Can someone counter?--Hitsuji Kinno (talk) 23:46, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Slavery controversy section[edit]

Not everyone has seen these Banksy opening credits, why aren't they described? Why aren't there any references? The section is quite unclear, and reads like it was written by someone with an agenda, certainly not fitting for an encyclopedia. The only reference doesn't support all the claims made. Shouldn't this be more than enough to warrant deletion? 88.73.76.144 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 00:52, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that History of Korean animation be merged into Korean animation. I think that the content in the History of Korean animation article can easily be explained in the context of Korean animation, and the Korean animation article is of a reasonable size that the merging of History of Korean animation will not cause any problems as far as article size or undue weight is concerned. The History of Korean animation article will also add much-needed referencing to the Korean animation page. Yoninah (talk) 17:35, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

I am not sure if the merge is needed. I think the topic of history of Korean animation has stand-alone notability, so there is no need to redirect the article here. We can copy more content and expand this one while leaving it in the old article. Finally, I'll note that the history section here is an unreferenced mess, while the old article is fully referenced. If we try to preserve the current content and merge the history of... here, and then redirect it, we will decrease the quality of the history content, as we will replace the fully referenced history of... article with one which is not. PS. I found some nice English refs at [2] and [3], if anyone would like to see if the content here could be referenced properly. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 14:29, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
Merging doesn't mean keeping the old material intact. If the merged content is better/better referenced, that should take precedence over the low-quality text. I propose saving whatever is salvageable from the History section here and primarily using the content of History of Korean animation for the History section.

I don't see why this article should disappear. You can copy the content, improve history section there, and leave this one intact for further development. I repeat: I believe the subtopic of history of Korean animation is important enough to deserve its own separate article. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 20:43, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
