Sunmin's projects include:

Tropes associated with Sunmin:

  • Animation Bump:
    • Their Steven Universe episodes tend to look more polished than their Rough Draft Korea counterparts. This is usually notable when they animate an episode from one of the board teams who usually have their episodes animated at Rough Draft (such as Lamar Abramsnote , and Raven Molisee & Paul Villeconote )
  • Conspicuous CG: Fantastic Four
  • Off-Model:
    • An episode of Gargoyles was guilty of this.
    • The Powerpuff Girls (2016) was notorious for its constant animation flubs during its first season.
    • OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes tends to do this a lot with facial expressions for the characters, albeit intentional.
  • Production Posse:
    • Often worked with Epoch Ink.
    • While Cartoon Network has used them to animate their shows created or based on shows created by Man of Action since the mid 2000's beginning with the first Ben 10 series, they have been using them more frequently for animating other projects since the mid 2010's such as Steven Universe, the Powerpuff Girls reboot, and a majority of their recent pilots (EX: Infinity Train, Twelve Forever).
