The Children’s Teacher, Mr. Kwon: An Announcement
It is with heavy heart that we make this announcement to let everyone know that we’ve officially dropped The Children’s Teacher, Mr. Kwon.
Our love and dedication for this webtoon are as strong as ever, but we had to make the decision against our will – it’s rather difficult to continue when you’re asked respectfully but clearly to desist by the webtoon’s original author Howoo himself (He was nice about it, however. He appreciated what we were doing and was grateful for our dedication). We tried to pursue the matter by contacting Naver directly for permission (we didn’t specify that it’s Mr. Kwon that we’re interested in, but asked for a general permission to translate some webtoons), who holds the electronic publishing rights to these webtoons, but Naver also refused us politely, saying that the matter of translating webtoons into English is something they’re already considering internally and thus can’t give us consent.
So that’s that and we bid this nice webtoon goodbye – and thanks to everyone who’s been following it until now. But there is another group that might pick up this project again soon, so don’t be too disheartened, guys.
