A Korean-made animation is poised to become a global hit after reaching a milestone of one million views in just two weeks.
Eggroy, created by Korean entertainment company P&E Studio, has already taken the attention of global audience even as the animation is only 60 percent complete.
With one million views in 14 days, the Eggroy channel will be hosting 130 episodes by February 2020 to meet the demand of eager fans.
P&E Studio admits that it took them 13 years to build Eggroy, without any outside investment. The effort is now getting rewarded as the company has lined up numerous licensing contracts for the animation.
P&E Studio started Egg Pictures Studio in 2004. In 2017, the company started exporting animations and doing character business with theme parks, toys, and stuffed toy business.
It hit gold when it introduced Eggroy, an adorable animation character made of egg. The Eggroy story is simple – the main character lives on an island of eggs with his friends – Joey, Mimi, and Cha Cha.
Everything was peaceful and quiet for Eggroy and his friends until Khan, a cook that specialises in eggs, suddenly arrives on the island.
The storyline becomes exciting as Eggroy and his friends find ways, cute ways, to stop the tyranny of Khan.
The animation is so cute that Eggroy is now exported to eight countries – the United States, China, Czech Republic, Indonesia, Taiwan, Vietnam, and India. P&E Studio currently in talks with distributors in Macao, Brazil, and Thailand.
P&E is not stopping there. According to its CEO, Il Joung, the plan is to bring Eggroy to at least 100 countries within the next few years.
“We aim to make Eggroy a beloved character for the next century,” Joung said.
Aside from making animation, P&E Studio has also built a kid’s cafe in partnership with Daewoo E&C, a Korean construction giant. The company now sells character goods, with new products being offered every month.
