About the story (copypasted from Mangareader):

Zen is a type of inner power energy that is essential in Marital Art World and the amount of Zen everyone has is different. Mingyum is person without Zen, who wishes to become East Asia Strongest Martial Artist. Due to his argument with his sister on what Major she want him to take at school and what he want, he left wandering around only to end up in a bad neighborhood. He end up saving a girl, but got himself beat up in the process because he got no Zen. Then he got saved by a foreign girl who sudden appear and announces that she is his fiancée. What will happen next?

Personal Note

With only 14 chapters out so far (in english, that's it), it's a bit hard to say whether the story's really good or bad, but the characters are enjoyable, the humour is nice... And there's lots of kissing going on: XD . What? -_-; . It's true! At least in comparison to other manhwas I've read (The Breaker, Veritas and a couple more), where kissing rarely happens except for in very special moments, kissing seems to occur fairly often in ZMAA :amuse .

wow i just notice this on Korean Manhwa (martial Arts genre) a lot of protagonist don't have inner KI or sometimes enemies underestimate them and get pawn :)

Zen Martial Arts Academy - don't have KI
The Breaker NEW WAVES : don't have KI center
Dark Mage - Ki(mana) depleted

G.O.H - Too strong
ID - Too strong
Yureka - Special Character too strong :)
Veritas - Too strong on some chapters
Shade the other side of light - has one too :)

but that's a good thing about Manhwa :)

I don't know for certain but on the BakaUpdates page (http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=71484) it says that the last chapter is 29. So that would mean the series is over.

Which would be a shame because I was enjoying it. Though I must admit I'm getting a little tired of the "powerful protagonist that for some reason can't use his power" plotline. Seems like that is the standard plot-line in supernatural martial arts manhwa.
