Welcome to another Manhwa Monday! It’s been a quiet week on the manhwa front, so there are just a few quick links to share on this American holiday.
It’s Martin Luther King Jr. day here in the US, and The Korean has a message for his Asian-American readers today.
Our friends at iSeeToon have unveiled a new front page design for their blog, with easy access to their currently available (and in-progress) iOS manhwa apps, as well as their series on types of manhwa. They are actively looking for feedback on pretty much all these things, so please let them know how you think they’re doing!
This week’s manhwa news is nearly all live-action news, with HANCINEMA posting the newest Priest trailer, and Dramabeans sharing casting info for the new drama adaptation of Kang Pool’s Pain. Kang Pool is also the author of Sunjeong Manhwa, reviewed by Hana Lee in her introduction to Korean webcomics, and pictured here in this entry.
At Manga-Market.com, tomnomnom joins the legions who attempt to explain “What is manhwa?”
This week in reviews, Todd Douglass at Anime Maki takes a look at volume 11 of Korean-created Black God (Yen Press). And at Panel Patter, Rob McMonigal talks about Korea as Viewed by 12 Creators (Fanfare/Ponent-Mon).
That’s all for this week!
Is there something I’ve missed? Leave your manhwa-related links in comments!

Thanks for the link, I am indeed joining the manhwa legion, and after a quick browse here, I have a lot of manhwa to think about! :)
Keep up the good work!

I was wondering, is there a link to the webcomic for Sunjeong Manhwa (Hello Schoolgirl) with English translation?

No, not that I know of. But that’s actually why we try to give these comics as much exposure here as possible—to encourage publishers! :)
