What are the chances of a partnership with Naver and adding fully English translated webtoons (manhwa) to your catalogue? Is it even possible?

If this ever happened, I would literally throw money at you guys. In fact I think a lot of people would. I enjoy manga but fully colored webtoons are just amazing, those Koreans are doing something right. Some of the authors on their have literally expressed their discontent with fansubs (with good reason) but I think if they got something out of it (partnership with Naver) we would finally be able to support them as well.

I would definitely be a fan of this myself. A couple of my favorite weekly reads are from Naver. I'll ask the manga princess to weigh in on this.

I cannot give you an answer on partnerships but I can tell you that Crunchyroll is currently doing it's best on our own to get content. I can also tell you that I have some manhwa that I would love to see on the site and have definitely relayed that to my licensing team. If you have any title suggestions, please let me know!

Rather than me suggest titles, if the point comes that CR is able to obtain manhwas, it might be cool to have like a thread asking people what titles they would like to see all together. I like too many manhwas to pick out any particular few, some are still being released. Thanks for response though.
