Manhwa, the little brother of the Japanese Manga. Not as popular, not as famous, but sometimes, just as high-qualitative.
Even so, Manhwas isn't super-easy to come across (unless you are on a forum, like MH ) so I was merely wondering - how did you come across Manhwa, and which series was your first?
Personally I tried out The Breaker after the bums in the Fun Forum spammed about how awesome it was in the different threads... aaaaaand they were right
After that I tried out Noblesse, Veritas and Freezing and am now stuck

I started with Veritas, I don't exactly remember who, but someone recommended it to me. I read it and from the very first chapter, I loved it. Afterward, I tried different series like The Breaker, Kisswood, Blast, etc. and really find them interesting. For last few months, I have been more inclined to read Manhwa then Manga.
i started with The Breaker and Veritas , followed by Witch Hunter .. AND THEN i met with Shin Angyo Onshi and it showed me there are masterpiece level manhwas out there , now im in search for them
I started with High school ( a good manhwa licensed in french since fews years but kinda new in english ). After high school i didn't paid any attention to manhwa until i discovered the breaker, then i started to read alot of manhwas: veritas, ID, Ares etc.... and i liked almost all the manhwa that i read.
as for me i scanned through the One manga site when it was going on and randomly picked one up
bit by bit it impressed me and later got to read veritas which really hooked me up in this kind of comics
It was unbalanceX2 for me. I waited for two years for that story to continue then it went downhill.
My first manhwa was Noblesse. I didn't really remember what brought me to read it. I was just playing around MH when I noticed the Manhwa section. I browsed through name of the series, then I saw Noblesse, read the description, and thought of it as quite interesting. More since I am somehow interested in reading stories about vampires. And so I go. XD
Ever since then, I have only checked two more manhwa: Tower of God and Bride of the Water God. ToG is just awesome like Noblesse, while BoWG feels a bit depressing to me. I'm planning to check more manhwa at the future. ^^
My first Manhwa was Noblesse because I was intrigued by its high place in popularity page. It introduced me to the concept of web comics. Shortly after the manhwa section of MH was created and I followed the advice of the section senpai. And I must thank all of them for their good choice, because I have discovered great series.
Now I go take a look regularly to EGScans new releases and I have to say that this group is doing a very great job.
Got lucky I was trying out mangas randomly, as i often do, in one of the hosting sites(i don't remember which, probably onemanga or mangafox). The name Veritas sounded interesting. Then the art seemed really nice. And the plot started really fast. And then i was hooked Though its still not like i search for manhwas particularly. After finding veritas, i did particularly looked for manhwas at one time and everyone was talking about the breaker, which i didn't like very much.
For me its very easy to across with manhwa. On the German market u can find a few manhaw series they got distributed.
Like the Thread start post say, the Quality is sometimes very High. In the series Shin Agnyo Onshi the Background Design was full of detail. The complet Story was a brilliant work of drawing. Incredible good.
The other Story is Majeh or in U.S. and Europen market King of Hell. I like it. The Comedy is fantastic also the Humor of different Charachters. Reminds me a little bit of inuyasha and Beelzebub mix.
I was going through onemanga at the time looking for something to read after reading a Naruto chapter then I discovered Legend of maian, from there I discovered other manwha like Defense Devil, Tower Of God, Noblesse, Kubera, Crepuscule etc
I say thanks to MH. I just felt ignorant reading only manga, so I picked up Noblesse (has it's own subforum, +name and annotation, yeah I love the stories with cool characters and an aristocrat sounded great.. and he is) and Addiction is here~
It was something new for me (webtoon, and colored!), but I'm loving this style.
Now I'm starting Breaker and then will move to other famous pieces, probably ID and Veritas.
So thanks MH
I came across about the manhwa world 6 months or so ago, i really didn't care about if it was manga or manhwa i read all what i find XD. The first manhwa i love the manhwa design most of them have game designs (or the games have picked the manga style i don't know) so i like them a lot the first one was King of Hell then The Breaker,Freezing, Veritas and Witch Hunter.

I can't really say I came across it, but I can say that Charlie shoved Noblesse down my throat
No regrets though.
