    Re: MH Manhwa Hangout

    A great step taken by MH Staff for Manhwa Dedicated Section. I am sure Manhwa fans will be delighted by this initiative.


    I am already seeing many new threads, series I haven't read.

    Re: MH Manhwa Hangout

    Here is some of a post from one of our senpai, eni, that I found useful on this matter:

    Quote Originally Posted by eni View Post

    Korean can be romanized very differently. First time I searched for 'Girls Comics' I got like four different looking words. So I wanted to know what's the commonly used system because I went with the romanization used in my books and on wikipedia and that's from the same company who teaches "aligato" in my Japanese books >.>
    Quote Originally Posted by Answer
    That's fine. They're using the romanization that was used for the capital (Seoul, etc.) I, personally, hate that romanization and would have put like Sungin and Soonjung etc., but please just leave the tags you have.

    2.) Demographic vs. Magazine
    My question was how to categorize a manhwa into a demographic. Is it done by magazine like in Japan or isn't that as clear in Korea? As example I used the magazine page of Young Champ which lists four manhwa with four different demographic infos (Sonyeon, Seongin, Yuri, Seinen) here at MH.
    Quote Originally Posted by Answer
    Young Champ is primarily shounen/sonyun(sonyeon). No yaoi/yuri/josei/sunjeong at all. It targets the male gender. However, some series like Black Sacrifice, La Mosca, etc. people may exclaim to be seinen/sungin(seongin) if it had been written in Japanese. More on this topic in the reply after next.

    Also, a minor note: Young Champ will also run a couple of the official Korean version of Japanese comics. Right now it's Lost Seven and Oh! My Goddess and REAL.

    3.) Target Groups
    The next question was about the fact that different sources tell different opinions about Josei being either included in Seongin (Adult Manhwa) or Sunjeong (Girls Manhwa). I supported the Seongin-version so far because a Korean friend told me so but Teqq's reason seems more reliable to me, so I take that back. Also, I wanted to know about terms for Boyslove/Girlslove in Korean and how their place is seen within the main demographics.
    Quote Originally Posted by Answer
    Beyond seongin, sonyeon, and sunjeong, there really aren't any categories. Bookstores and whatnot tend to categorize by type of story (i.e. action, romance, school drama, sports, SF/fantasy, etc.). With that said:

    Yaoi/yuri tend to be lumped together in with the "sunjeong" category as a sub-category. There's no nice little name for it, that I know of off-hand. Sunjeong is split into (usually): "men's love", "lady's comics" and "teenager's comics" (last two are actually transliterated) . Those would be the equivalent of yaoi/shounen-ai, josei, and shoujo. Seongin very strongly implies seinen and not josei because of what I just said in the previous sentence. To be quite honest, I don't think I've ever encountered a real yuri manhwa. It'd probably be labeled as "lady's comic", however. It definitely isn't lumped as a sub-category of "sonyeon". And another note about any "men's love" comics: they typically have the label/designation "YA" at the beginning/title/chapter page. I'm uncertain of the exact meaning of it: it could either be a take-off of "yaoi" or it could be short for "ya han" which would mean perverted.

    4.) Hentaiiiii!
    A final just-in-case question about a Korean equivalent to hetero pornographic manhwa ^^;
    Quote Originally Posted by Answer
    Anything explicit is referred to as "sungae" or "seongae" if you want to follow the other romanizations. It translates literally to "sexual love". In Korea, to purchase anything labeled as seongin or seongae would require submission of your actual resident registration number to verify your age is over 18. I do not read those comics and seongae is really not so mainstream in Korea as it is in Japan (we're prudish compared to Japan)
    As for animation of manhwa, I only have this information from Wikipedia to offer.

    Thanks for that info Tsuki especially last paragraph *cough*!
    As far as I know, the only Manhwas that has gotten an anime adoption are the ones that were serialized in Japan as well.

    I have watched the movie based on Shin Angyo Onshi (one of my favorite series) aka Blade of the Phantom Master. Other than that, Priest live-action movie is being made by one of US studious Screen Gems. I will research more and then try to come up with some information.

    It didn't cover the entire series, it was too much to cover. But some events at the beginning. Nevertheless, it was a decent watch.

    Re: MH Manhwa Hangout

    I happened to read one called Cheese in the tap. Its not a type of story I read normally or recommend. Its about a guy and a girl. Not sure on the classification but it had that something to capture my attention.

    Re: MH Manhwa Hangout

    Layers and TAL caught my attention lately. Too early to comment but the art is wonderful and the storlines look promising.


    I was hoping if we could have someone properly reviewing the manhwa series. If someone is willing and show consistency / fulfill other minor requirements, he or she can get the Reviewer status as well. Adding to it, it will be good for manhwa to be known among the others. A review can attract more audience.

    Re: MH Manhwa Hangout

    I have noticed that most of the Web comics from the manhwa forum come from the Korean website naver and seems to be free to read (when you understand Korean). Does anybody know how they get the money from, is it only from ads ? How do they choose the series displayed in the website ?
    Anyway if they managed to be able to pay the artists while keeping an good editorial standard I find it great. Plus we can feel less guilty to read scanlation.

    Do you know if such things exists in others countries ? In France there are a lot's of free blogs but not centralized in a single website and it is rather autobiographical. The only story that I know is not free (~3€ per month). So I find it interesting this new way of making comics

    I second that. webcomics have lots of potential. If it was international, that could be a youtube a-like but for mangas. people are already used to read mangas online, the korean industry already understood that.

    Re: MH Manhwa Hangout

    Featured manwha currently is The Tower of God series.

    There a re also a couple new other series sticky'd there, Tal and Layers.

    They do not have much scanned chapters yet but the story for those series has that something to grab your attention.

    Zuzun web manhwa
    chapters, 15, 16, 17 are out too, another great series, read it if you haven't yet.



    @ Jorped - Yes, Yureaka aka ID entity is indeed awesome, kind of long but yeah.

    - It really is a complete series (lots of chaps + well thought out), meaning it can be ready for anime anytime.
