    Looks like it's from a messaging application called Line by a company called Line Corporation.
    The characters from the application are being used for various products, animations and more for long time..
    It seems that these characters are mostly popular in the eastern countries, however it seems that these characters were brought to North America, too.
    However, in the western countries it's less popular and known...

    er, it's just Nexon copying events from other versions w.o checking if they're relevant to the audience.

    I don't mind. It introduces people to new things and its free stuff for the most part.
