I was greatly pleased that my scenario based on the principle that electron ions in fruit can substitute for batteries was selected to make Part 70 Orange Necklace and that the part was televised.”

“When I came to know through a TV report that the Korea April 26 Animation Studio newly created parts 1and 2 of cartoon Prince Hodong and Princess of Rangnang, I was eager to see it. I saw the first showing of it at the cinema. Its storyline is more interesting and the characters, buildings and everything else of hundreds of years ago it shows were so vivid that I almost took them for the real. I am looking forward to the next parts,” said Choe Song U, a moviegoer.
