Read comics, do not ignore manhwa, they will make you as addicted as the masterpieces of Japanese or Malaysian comics.
Unlike the Japanese who mainly compose manga and publish on comics in magazines before making them into comic books, Koreans produce their stories on the web. Therefore, the Korean story is mostly called a webtoon and is released weekly to readers around the world instead of making viewers wait like Japanese.
Korean comics are also very attractive in terms of topic and genre. Not only exploring traditional isekai, RPG or shounen themes, Koreans do not hesitate to put their own creations into manhwa works. Let’s take a look at the manhwa works that have attracted the most attention from readers in the past time.
1. Solo Leveling
Based on the famous Korean online novel series written by Chu-Gong, the manga version of Solo Leveling is done by two artists, Gi So-Ryeong and Jang Sung-Rak. Solo Leveling is about the journey of Sung Jin Woo, a weak E-Rank hunter who goes on missions in low-level dungeons to make money. After entering a D rank cave, he and his teammates encountered a double dungeon and from there, many unexpected things happened.
At the present time, Solo Leveling is still in the top of the most popular webtoon sets in Korea as well as in the world. Even the author of this comic series is considering to be able to collaborate with studios to release anime versions and even games based on the novel Solo Leveling.
