FIVE ROMANTIC KOREAN WEBTOONS I'M CURRENTLY BINGE-READING


Eiyo Fadneiras,

How are you guys doing so far this August? I hope you guys are having a good month. Today, I'm going to share a list of five romantic Korean webtoons that I'm currently binge-reading.

Besides reading novels, I also love reading webtoons. As an avid reader, writer, content creator, and artist, reading webtoons give me knowledge and ideas on story writing, content creating, and character drawing. Reading webtoons also helps me to enhance my creativity, makes me more imaginative, aware of the current trend in story writing, and knows readers' taste. Webtoons are also enjoyable and entertaining to read. Most webtoons I've read and currently reading have beautiful illustrations, interesting plots and storylines, and romantic sexy AF alpha male heroes in them. Romantic and sexy AF heroes are one of the reasons that make webtoons popular these days. Just sharing some facts. Hehehe ^_^

Webtoons are a type of digital comic that is meant to be read on computers, smartphones, and tablets, and they begin in South Korea. Readers can read and get access to webtoons by downloading apps like Naver Webtoon, Tapas.io, WebComics, MangaToon, Bilibili Comics, etc on their gadgets. These apps can be downloaded from Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Like books, webtoons also have genres such as romance, fantasy, thriller, horror, historical fiction, etc.

Webtoons begin with manhwa. Manhwa is the traditional term for South Korean comics and print cartoons. Webtoons weren't a culture outside of South Korea when it first started. But when manhwa became popular worldwide, webtoons became a phenomenon as well.  Now webtoons are an in-thing in the pop-culture and creative industry. Reading webtoon is now a trend in countries like South Korea, Japan, China, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Australia, etc. Webtoons have become an industry in South Korea. There are a lot of webtoon agencies form in South Korea now. And these agencies are providing jobs for young creatives in the country. Wow... daebak!!! 

Ok, so this is my summary of webtoons. Now let's check out the five romantic Korean webtoons that I'm currently binge-reading. We shall begin the list with no.1-5.


#1 THERE MUST BE HAPPY ENDINGS

CREATORS:  Jaerim, Bulsa & Flada

GENRE: Romance & melodrama

WHERE TO READ IT: Naver Webtoon

SUMMARY:

There Must Be Happy Endings (TMBHE) belongs to the romance and melodrama genre. This webtoon carries the second-chance-for-love trope. The story follows a beautiful woman named Lee Yeonu. Yeonu was caught in a loveless marriage. To escape the loveless marriage, Yeonu asks her husband, Kang Seonjae to divorce her. On the day of their divorce being finalized, Seonjae gets into an accident and he dies on the spot. Yeonu regrets Seonjae's death. One week after Seonjae's funeral, Yeonu travels back to 100 days before the tragic accident happened. Seonjae is still alive. And they are still a married couple. Yeonu decides to change fate. She wants to make sure that Seonjae won't die this time. She soon finds out that Seonjae is in love with her all this while. And Yeonu also realizes that she loves Seonjae too all this while. Can Yeonu change fate? Can she and Seonjae achieve their happy ending?

MY REVIEW:

This webtoon has gorgeous illustrations in it. The illustrations for this webtoon look so alive. TMBHE also has an interesting plot and intriguing storyline. It makes you intrigued and want to know what happens next, can Yeonu change fate? And will she and Seonjae have a happy ending? I believe TMBHE is a good webtoon for all romance readers and anime lovers to read. 



#2 ANOTHER LOVE

CREATORS: I Soon Ki, Ddogak, Sparkler

GENRE: Romance & melodrama

WHERE TO READ IT: Naver Webtoon

SUMMARY:

A lady architect named Jae travels to Spain for a solo vacation. The vacation takes an interesting turn when Jae is mistakenly assigned to the same hotel room as Joff, a handsome and successful businessman who is intrigued by Jae’s kind and independent nature. To Jae, this vacation represents a new chapter as she learns to stand on her own again. Jae once had a terrible life. She was once abused by her ex-boyfriend. As romance starts to bloom between Jae and Joff, a sinister figure from Jae’s past begins to haunt her once again…

MY REVIEW:

If you're a fan of romantic stories, Another Love is a webtoon you guys must not miss. The illustrations and scenes setting for this webtoon are absolutely beautiful. This webtoon also has an interesting plot, intriguing storyline, and awesome characters. If you're into romantic alpha male heroes, Joff is a character that you will fall in love with. He is handsome, romantic, loving, sweet, and also protective of his heroine. Joff is one of the webtoon heartthrobs that I have a crush on right now. He is so dreamy indeed ^_^



#3 A BUSINESS PROPOSAL

Image: thekrazemag.com


CREATORS: Perilla, Narak, Haehwa & Guava Farm

GENRE: Romance & Comedy

WHERE TO READ IT: Tapas.io

SUMMARY:

This feel-good rom-com webtoon carries a-girl-meets-a-boy and the-Cinderella-fairytale tropes. Shin Hari, a hopeless romantic beauty has been looking for love using the wrong method. One day, Hari makes a deal to go on one blind date for her BFF and pretends to be a super-vixen to end all of her unwanted marriage set-ups! Unfortunately, instead of easy money, Hari ends up getting headaches. Her blind date is Kang Taemu. He is the new CEO of the company Hari is working at. Taemu also has his own plan to get his family to back off by marrying whoever shows up on the date. Taemu obviously wants to marry Hari. And there is no way for her to escape him.  Should Hari accept Taemu's proposal to keep playing pretend? Could this be a Cinderella fairytale or a disaster for Hari?

MY REVIEW:

A Business Proposal is my no.1 favorite webtoon now. I like everything in this webtoon. The storyline, plot, moral values, characters, and illustrations. A Business Proposal is a very enjoyable webtoon to binge-read. This webtoon gives me a lot of happy vibes. If you're a fan of Lisa Kleypas and Anjell novels, A Business Proposal is a webtoon you must not miss. And Kang Taemu is another alpha male hero that will swoon your heart. He is a handsome, charismatic, romantic, tender loving hero. Taemu loves Hari with all his heart. And he will do anything to get her in his arms. Kang Taemu is one of the webtoon heartthrobs that I have a crush on now. In fact, he's now my no.1 favorite webtoon heartthrob. I just love Kang Taemu. He's a dream hero ^_^

PS: A Business Proposal has already been adapted into a K-Drama series titled Business Proposal (starring Ahn Hyo Seop and Kim Sejeong). The drama, Business Proposal is now available on Netflix.



#4 I CONFESSED TO THE BOSS

Image: tapas.oi


CREATORS: Mido, Eibe & Kangdalkong

GENRE: Romance & comedy

WHERE TO READ IT: Tapas.io

SUMMARY:

Team leader, Ji Dohoon is known as Mr. Perfect and everyone is in love with him - except for one person, that is. For the past two years, Dajung only has her eyes on her co-worker, Hyunwoo. On the night of the company dinner, Dajung decides to confess her feeling to Hyunwoo. However, once the tall figure she confesses to steps out of the shadows, Dajung realizes she is talking to none other than Mr. Perfect himself! But what’s more shocking is that Dohoon agrees to date Dajung! Is Dohoon serious about this?

MY REVIEW:

I Confessed To The Boss (ICTTB) is another feel-good webtoon. I just started to follow the series last month. So far, this webtoon has an intriguing storyline. It makes you want to know why Ji Dohoon agrees to date Dajung. Does he secretly have feelings for her? And will she fall in love with him in the end?



#5 PERFECT MARRIAGE REVENGE

Image: tvtropes.org


CREATORS: Yibambe, So Young & Jerryball

GENRE: Romance & Melodrama

WHERE TO READ IT: Naver Webtoon

SUMMARY:

Han Iju isn't sure where her life went wrong. She was once the heiress to a wealthy business magnate, but now she's an ordinary housewife whose main concerns are her nagging in-laws and household chores. Things take a much more tragic turn when Iju sees her husband confessing his love to her stepsister, Yura.  Devastated, Iju runs away, only to be hit by a car and killed. But when Iju opens her eyes, she is now back to a year before the accident happened,  before her life went awry. Given a second chance at life, Iju vows revenge and she was also determined to take back all that she’s lost. She begins her quest by marrying the man who is supposed to be Yura's suitor, Seo Doguk. 

MY REVIEW:

Like There Must Be Happy Endings, this webtoon also has gorgeous illustrations in it. This webtoon also has an intriguing storyline and interesting plot. It really makes you want to know what will happen next. Will Iju succeed in her quest for revenge? I hope this webtoon will be adapted into a drama series in the future. I believe this webtoon will make an awesome live-action drama. Besides the storyline, plot, and illustration, I also like the characters in this drama. Han Iju is a very cool badass female protagonist. She is cunning and a femme fatale. And Seo Doguk is such a sweetheart. He is another webtoon heartthrob that I have a crush on right now.



Ok, so these are the five romantic Korean webtoons that I'm currently binge-reading. These webtoons are so cool to read. I believe these webtoons are a must not miss for all romance story lovers. However, I need to remind you guys, that these five webtoons have some steamy adult romance scenes in them. So they are not suitable for readers who are under 18.

So... are you guys a fan of webtoons too? If yes, what webtoon are you currently binge-reading? Please share some suggestions in the comment box below. I'm so into webtoons now ^_^

Before I end this post, I would like to share one shameless self-promo. I just uploaded Fail Merah's Chapter 3: Dugaan Kedua on my author's website, F.Mooneira's Bookshelf. You guys can now do some free-reading. Just click this link to binge-read Fail Merah's Chapter 3 >> FAIL MERAH BAB 3: DUGAAN KEDUA.
