An Introduction to Manhwa

Manhwa is the Korean word for comics, including webtoons and printed versions. The term “manhwa” started in the 1920s when many of Japan’s cultural elements were adopted by Korea. Manga, the Japanese comics style, was also introduced, and Korean artists began to create their own stories in the same style. Unlike manga, manhwa is read from left to right.

Manhwa publications went through years of growth, challenges, and reformation. Now, it’s not printed as often as it was in the past, but it’s still prevalent in its digital form: webtoons! We now have digital platforms, such as Lezhin Comics, WebComics, TappyToon, and Webtoon.

You can find an endless supply of genres, including action, romance, slice-of-life, and more. We call manhwa creators “manhwaga.” Because of them, we can enter new worlds and explore different cultures without ever having to leave our homes.
