Renecently I've been doing more Manga reading and I really got into this one manga. I was a little confused occasionally by the change in expressing, for instance, Hyunng instead of Oni sama etc, till I found out it wasn't a Manga at all it was a Manwha. Then I had to find out what the difference was. Manga = Japanese and Manwha= Korean. Ever have that happen to you?

DO you have a Manwha you like? Do you read Manwha? why or why not? Or do you perfer Manga?

The Manwha I am recently reading is " Love in the Mask" at mangafox. Its a genderbender full of drama and some violence.

There's a really good Manwha called "TRACE". It's a lot like X-Men, except it's even more...dark? People suddenly develop these powers and are feared. I don't remember how many chapters it is, but the majority of it is in color and it's very well done. It's weird switching from right to left with manga TO left to right with manwha. Anyway, I recommend TRACE to everyone! A lot of action and a good plot.

As far as a preference. I don't really have one. The only thing I could say in manga's favor, for me, is that Japanese names are easier for me to differentiate. Many of the Korean names start sounding VERY similar after a while, and sometimes I'll get people mixed up...but, it's only a small problem and it's MY problem.

After you start reading them more, you'll be able to tell the difference better. You can usually tell by the face. Korean manwha usually has larger round eyes. The body looks a little different too, at least to me. Not to mention the left to right text.
