TikTokers are loving yet another AI filter that’s going viral on the app — here’s how to try the popular AI Webtoon filter for yourself.

Over the years, there have been a huge number of different filters and effects to go viral on TikTok, with many garnering millions of likes and views, as users across the app try them all out.

Recently, users have been obsessed with AI filters, including everything from the AI Painter effect to the hyper-realistic Wedding Dress filter.

The latest to go viral is the AI Webtoon effect, which turns viewers into comic book characters. It was created by Webtoon, a South Korean platform where you can read comics across 23 genres, such as romance, comedy, fantasy, action, and horror.

The filter isn’t actually available on TikTok, but it’s on a popular South Korean app that you can use wherever you are in the world. If you want to try out the filter, here’s everything to know.
