I don't get this question but even though I prefer manga more let's be honest here, recent Manwha's are oozing with creativity and unique whilst manga's are just producing the same shit lately

Wikipedia has a short article about Korean comics here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhwa, along with some useful links. The entertainment site TVTropes (at http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Manhwa ) doesn't have much more information about manhwa, but it might help you learn more.

Regrettably, I haven't yet found much info on the history of manhwa. The W'pedia article on manga states that it was codified after 1945, though there are a few examples of Japanese comics and sequential art that pre-date World War II.

Every category, style, and format of entertainment is subject to Sturgeon's Law. In other words, you can be assured that ninety percent of everything is crud.
