Topaz Agency Inc.

Topaz Agency started in this field in 2007, and has become the leading agency with a special emphasis on Comics from the scratch. The representative, Nam-Ho KIM, had previously worked as a licensing director of the leading ‘Manhwa’ (Korean Comics) publisher named Daewon C.I. Inc. for over 14 years since 1995. KIM has licensed more than 3,500 titles (almost 7,000 volumes) to the 37 countries.

We are in the position of licensing and handling almost all of the Korean Comics and the other various literary properties because of my previous licensing backgrounds.

We use our intimate knowledge and expertise in publishing to give our clients an edge in their dealings with publishers, from the initial crafting of the proposal and manuscript, through the negotiation of the deal, and long into the process of editing, marketing, and publicizing the book. With our network of prominent co-agents in the foreign and markets, we are aggressive advocates for our clients' work throughout the world.

Furthermore, we has a strong relationship with any kinds of business networks in domestic and overseas in cultural entertainment industries; animation company, game company, publishers, the character licensing companies and various agency companies, etc.

In all cases the aim is to establish a life-time's business relationship and to promote all aspects of an author's writing career, even between book contracts.

The pioneer of Korean Manhwa
The using of “Manhwa” as a brand name for Korean comics has reaped great success in the overseas markets. It was Kim who has tried to make an effective effort to expand the Korean word ‘Manhwa’ against Japanese ‘Manga’ which had already been popular around the world. This was just to differentiate Korean Manhwas from Japanese Mangas as the fundamental marketing strategy and it has been proved successful in the overseas markets.

The licensed territories (37 countries)
We have licensed a lot of Manhwa to the 36 overseas countries since 1995; Japan, Taiwan, China, Hongkong, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Israel, U.K, Italy, Spain, Austria, Germany, Luxemburg, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Poland, Sweden, Croatia, Russia, Finland, Bulgaria, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, The Czech Republic, Serbia, Cambodia
