COMPANY OCON STUDIOS

 Director Sandy J in OCON STUDIOS is in charge of the overseas business. Leaving OCON after having worked in his late 20s, the director returned to OCON 4 years ago and is in charge of the overseas business, promoting the global box office IP ‘Pororo’ theater series overseas. Q. Would you introduce OCON STUDIOS and its main works? OCON is an animation studio founded in 1996. In addition to the theater version animation of <Pororo>, it is producing TV animations such as <Toy Cop> and <Super Jack>. Q.

View Point 1. A documentary about capital that destroys the community that has been accumulated for decades and the scars it leaves.

FILM The Recon

After the Netflix series D.P. recently made a splash, military dramas dealing with the Korean army and its culture are drawing attention again. Unlike Descendants of the Sun, the 2016 TV drama focusing on the heroic appearance of Korean special forces, D.P. approached military issues realistically by focusing on the backside of the military culture.

Above all, The Recon deals with serious military issues such as accidental deaths and severe treatments. In particular, to young male viewers who must fulfill military duty under the conscription system, the subject of the film must be more relatable. Just as D.P. went beyond Korean specificity and viewers around the world could be sympathized with the issue of human rights, The Recon goes one step further
