Good morning fellow Webtoon readers and welcome to this week’s installment of Saturday Morning Webtoons! This is where we shine a light on two Webtoons we are thoroughly enjoying. These stories have had us captivated chapter after chapter each week and we couldn’t pass up sharing them with you! So grab your favorite snacks, an electronic device and settle into these sensational stories.
DISCLAIMER: The following posts have possible spoilers for Happily Ever Afterwards and My Gently Raised Beast.
Happily Ever Afterwards
We’ve got fantasy on the brain, so we have to talk about Hwang DoTol and Jeongseo‘s Happily Ever Afterwards. Peony has been reborn as a character at the end of her favorite romance novel. Her goal now? To marry her favorite character – the grumpy and moody banished former prince who didn’t get a happy ending in the novel. Can Peony and Richt make the most of their second chance at life and love? Or will they both miss out on their happy endings?
I am a sucker for the second chance trope we find so often in romance novels. This is probably why I am so drawn to Happily Ever Afterwards. Peony knows about everything he went through and is trying to help him see that he deserves a second chance. Richt thinks she deserves better. And if you are a romance reader, you know that this is the perfect equation for a heartwarming and most likely heartbreaking story. Be sure to have some tissues handy just in case!

My Gently Raised Beast
Keeping with the fantasy theme, we are jumping over to My Gently Raised Beast, adapted by Early Flower from a story written by Teava and art by Yeoseulki. The story follows Blondina, who is living a real-life Cinderella story. After a rough childhood, she realizes that she is a princess of the Ates empire. While trying to keep her head low, she befriends Amon, a cat-like creature with mysterious intentions. Can their friendship bring peace between the races or deepen the rift?
My Gently Raised Beast is quickly becoming one of my favorite Cinderella-type retellings. Blondina finds herself being saved from one horror and tossed into a life that may seem better but is just as lonely. Her friendship with Amon is heartwarming as she settles into her new life and the small moments they have together are so sweet. It’s impossible not to root for these two! This is one of those reads that make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. And just like the other one, maybe grab those tissues too.
