Golden Child members to go 2D in webtoon series with detailed storyline based on 'Burn It' music video
Golden Child is set become 2D characters with their exclusive webtoon series for 'Burn It'. The South Korean boy band announced on Saturday, January 23, that their very own webtoon will have a storyline based on their upcoming comeback music video 'Burn It'.
Translating the caption from Korean to English on Twitter for a recent post by the band, an announcement reads: "'Burn It' Webtoon Poster Golden Child 'Burn It' A webtoon containing the full story of the music video was released! Meet every Saturday in the Lezhin Comics app." The teaser poster features several pics of the Golden Child members designed in a smooth anime appearance and dramatic imagery, including a pic of a member holding a gun to his head.
Before the 'Burn It' music video drops, fans will be treated to the story as the webtoon releases on January 23, 2021, at 10 pm KST / 8 am EST. The official 'Burn It' music video arrives two days later on January 25, 2021, at 6 pm KST / 4 am EST.

'Burn It', which is a new song by Golden Child, will feature as the lead track on their comeback mini-album 'Yes'. Similar to the webtoon poster, the group shared a teaser featuring intense imagery of the music video last week. According to reports, the song expresses what it's like to watch a loved one in pain and having a feeling of wanting to "burn" their suffering away.
What is Lezhin Comics?
As shared in the above announcement, each episode for the new Golden Child webtoon series can be viewed every Saturday on the Lezhin Comics app. For those who need an introduction, Lezhin Comics is a webtoon portal that was founded by South Korean blogger Han Hee-sung in 2013. It is based in South Korea and offers services in Korean, Japanese and English, although it isn't clear what language the 'Burn It' webtoon will be presented in. English services have been part of the portal since 2015.
As of 2014, Lezhin Comics has become one of South Korea's largest webtoon publishers. Its content is created by professional and amateur cartoonists including 2013 Korea Content Awards winner Lee Jin-young (Yool Lee) and 2014 Today's Cartoon Award winner Yoo Ayoung. Webtoons from their widely extensive catalog include 'An Uncomfortable Truth', 'At the End of the Road' and 'How Far Have You Gone?'.
