I love how popular k-dramas get their own comic/manga/manhwa version with photos from the dramas used (rather than drawings). It’s like a photobook + comic and I would totally buy it for dramas I love – as a collectible and a very good k-learning resource.
I only own two (hahaha 1 volume each LOL) and actually the 상속자들 one was passed to me by wx. So technically I only bought volume 4 of my first ever k-drama Princess Hours (궁).
The backstory was that back in those days when e-commerce wasn’t as commonplace (and I don’t own any debit/credit card), I could only depend on the local bookstores for the very feeeeew books they carry (at exorbitant prices). So I could only afford one and I bought the volume which had the drama scenes I loved the most hahahaha. Even now, I would think shipping these books is gonna cost they are often of very good quality (and heavy).
I still recalled how excited I was to be able to own a Korean manhwa and I was trying my best to read the speech bubbles (just started learning Korean then!). It’s a great resource for beginners and omg the sense of satisfaction you feel when you manage to understand a simple sentence!! Those were the days :’)
I have a lot of fond memories of these books and would highly recommend them to Korean learners. I kind of regret not collecting the full 궁 set of books and I doubt they are available for sale now – it’s like more than 12 years ago!
