Official Press Release
San Jose, CA – July 8, 2003 Today ComicsOne announced that they have
acquired the rights to My Sassy Girl, the quirky and hilarious manga hit
from writer Ho Sik Kim and illustrator Dae Hong Min.
My Sassy Girl is a funny and touching romantic comedy following the
lives of two college students brought together by fate. Geon-woo is a
clean-cut naive boy who becomes involved with a beautiful “Sassy” girl
who manages to wrap him around her finger as he honestly tries to see
her through troubled times. The story is filled with humor and
surprising events as the two try to find out if opposites really do
My Sassy Girl first hit the scene in Korea as a mega popular movie in
2001. The film was number one at the box office for six straight weeks
in Korea and sold over 20,000 tickets per day in Hong Kong. It was the
second highest grosser of 2001 (accumulating more box office loot than
SHREK, HARRY POTTER or LORD OF THE RINGS).
ComicsOne’s translated graphic novel adaptation is a full-color title
containing a dynamic and compelling artistic style. The book’s sassy,
uppity and assertive female protagonist is far from your traditional
cutesy mealy-mouthed anime girl. She’s got spunk, attitude and is not
afraid to speak her mind, which often lands her self-proclaimed guarding
Geon-woo in big trouble. But this makes for some occurrences that are
just down-right hilarious!
Volume One of My Sassy Girl is available in September 2003. The full
color 128 page graphic novels will be priced at $13.95. Visit
