AI Webtoon Filter goes viral

The AI Webtoon Filter is a viral effect where you upload a photo of yourself and it turns you into a South Korean comic picture.

It was created by Webtoon, a South Korean platform where you can read thousands of comics across 23 genres including romance, comedy, action, fantasy, and horror.

Webtoons are a type of digital comic that originated in South Korea and are usually meant to be read on smartphones, although their popularity is growing worldwide.

The filter is located on the Webtoon app, which is all written in Korean, but you can still use it wherever you are on the globe.

When you visit the AI Webtoon website, it says a global version of the filter is “coming soon”.

So, you’ll soon be able to easily access the effect worldwide without downloading the Korean app in the future.

In the meantime, here’s another anime filter to try.
