Witch Hunt

In SSO Park‘s Witch Hunt, Gamin swaps schools quite often, so he knows how to blend in with the kids. But Garmin has his own little secret. He happens to be a bit handsy with other people’s things. But what happens when he sees something he shouldn’t have? Izzy has been trying to lay low ever since she and her kind have started to be hunted. Don’t talk to anyone, don’t make any friends and don’t be seen. Easy right? When Garmin learns her secret and she gives him the opportunity to understand her, it nearly causes her death. She goes back into hiding only to meet up with him again four years later. But this time it appears they are both being hunted.

Witch Hunt is a supernatural webtoon that dives into the genres of mystery and suspense. Neither Garmin nor Izzy are extremely likeable in the beginning with Garmin stealing everyone’s things and Izzy being a recluse, but over the series, you grow to love them. Similar to the characters, the story comes off as simple at first. But the further SSO Park’s story expands, the more it becomes clear how much depth this Webtoon has. This is a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you try and piece together what is really going on. In the end, you will question the true intentions of one’s love and how they affected the overall story within Witch Hunt.

Witch Hunt has ended and the entire Webtoon can be read here.

Annarasumanara
The tale of the magician who could do real magic in Annarasumanara.

The tale of the magician who could do real magic in Annarasumanara.

Don’t let the title intimidated you! Ilkwon Ha‘s Annarasumanara may sound like a mouthful to say, but the story is worth reading over and over. Yoon Ai, a girl struggling to feed her and her sister, dreams of a life where she becomes a magician. But in reality, she’s just a high school student who can’t afford new socks. While chasing down a bit of money that got away, she finds herself at an abandoned amusement park that is home to a real magician. When she comes face to face with him, he simply asks her “Do you believe in magic?”, before she runs away. But what happens if she decides to follow her true dream? Will he be able to help her?

Yoon Ai only wants to be happy. She was forced to grow up prematurely and let go of her dream to be a magician. This isn’t a sugary love story or an action or suspense story. It is a story about change, poverty, expectations and defying the rules of our societies. Annarasumanara shows us what it is like to lose the innocence of childhood along with the pressures of school and dealing with others’ prejudice and jealousy. This is a wonderful blend of fantasy and reality that work together to give us an insightful tale. And if the story isn’t enough to win you over, Ilkwon Ha’s art style is simply beautiful. It focuses on a black, grey and white color scheme with pops of color and realistic art at times.
