I received a PR piece recently from digital manhwa publisher iSeeToon, announcing three trailers for their upcoming iOS release, Ill-Fated Relationship, a dark romance featuring two serial killers. Two of these are available already, one from the male character’s POV and one from the female character. (See these YouTube links if Storyberry fails in your browser.) A third will be available shortly. If you’re more interested in still shots, they’ve got those too.
Once you’ve watched the trailers, be sure to check out this interview with the series’ creator, Hwang Joon Ho, which was adapted into English by our very own Hana Lee!
Ill-fated relationship in its entirety will be available through App Store for iPhone sometime this month, with an initial sale price of $4.99 (regular price will be $8.99). You can find iSeeToon’s description of the series here.
I reviewed an advanced copy of the comic several months ago here at Manhwa Bookshelf. Here’s the quote from my review they’ve pulled for their PR: “Hwang’s style is sparse, both visually and narratively, creating an environment that feels both intimate and detached at the same time. While the limited use of color suggests a similarly subdued emotional palette, the lack of detail (both background and foreground) brings each emotional beat into sharp focus.”
It really is a fascinating series. I hope those of you with iPhones will check it out!
