December as TOKYOPOP Inc. presents four new spectacular

political power, schoolboy crushes, demons and mafia

winter long.

President Dad (Comedy/Drama, Volume 1 Release:
Ju-Yeon Rhim's coming-of-age story, President Dad,

Neck and Neck (Comedy/Drama, Volume 1 Release:
Sun Hee Lee's teen soap opera is like the wild
theatrics of The O.C. crossed with the power games of The
