Many of the toons have become super popular with adaptations into other mediums too. For example, Tower of God gained its own anime series, Cheese in the Trap is a Korean TV drama, and Webtoon's top-rated toon, Lore Olympus, may soon be getting an animated series developed by the Jim Henson company.
