Someone please enlighten me. Are they really that interesting?
I have known about Korean webtoons since years ago, but I have never been able to finish even one installment.
They just…. don’t appeal to me. Is it me? Or maybe I didn’t read the popular ones. But even looking at those on the ranking list doesn’t help.
First, I can’t stand the drawings. I’m not saying that they are bad or ugly, but they are just not my style. 패션왕 is currently #1 on the list now and when I clicked on it, immediately I’m like meh.
The drawing style just turns me off. I’m too used to the Japanese manga style. It’s like how I love archie comics and hate marvel comics. Personal preference.
Secondly, the dialogue boxes/font. Either they are just awkwardly big or the font is like slanted and unreadable.
Okay, am I being too picky?
But I really dun like them.
Maybe it’s because my Korean wasn’t that good last time, so all these made reading even more of a chore. So now, I shall attempt to start reading one. 사랑일까? caught my eyes because.. the drawings are acceptable. The font is a little hard to read, but I’ll bear with it. Better than too blocky fonts. I dun like those too.
If you are looking for some light reading, check out NAVER 만화.
p.s. Don’t get discouraged if you can’t read the manga. Even though they are short sentences, they usually consists quite a number of slangs. Which are actually high level (:
