A Look Inside The Korean Studio That Made  “Legend of Korra” A Look Inside The Korean Studio That Made  “Legend of Korra”

The Korean studio responsible for the animation production of The Legend of Korra is Studio Mir. The young studio was launched by Jae Myung Yoo, who was an animation director on Avatar: The Last Airbender. The studio’s other recent projects include season four of The Boondocks and an animated sequence in the recent live-action film Think Like a Man. Historically, Korean service studios have been content to remain anonymous, but Studio MIR represents the new young breed of foreign animation studios that make an effort to connect with the public and interact with fans. They have an active Facebook fan page, and offer glimpses inside their studio, such as in the video above. MIR has plenty of reason to be proud of their work on Korra since they also did some of the show’s pre-production work, in addition to the animation production.

They’re also posting small samples of pencil animation, like this Korra scene by key animation director Jung Hye Young…
