So mainly another difference is that it's a Korean manga to simplify things. You'll see their own take on art style and yes the reading format is different. I recall a friend on here asking and telling me about this.

Manga is japanese comics and manhwa is Korean comics... I also feel that manhwa drawings are usually a little more detailed and the characters more generally slimmer while in manga, they can look any which way, but that's just my opinion... ^^'

the difference between manga and manhwa is... manga is a japanese graphic novel while manhwa is a korean graphic novel and manhwa you read like left to right while manga u read right to left and the style of manhwa is more serious then manga, well some manhwa aren't but most have a more serious way of drawing then most mang. so sorry if i said anything inncorrect that is what i really just noticed while reading each type
