Itaewon Class

By Kwang jin

His goal—grow it into a franchise big enough to take on Jangga Group, a titan in the dining industry owned by the ruthless Jang family who killed his father. They come at Saeroyi with every dirty trick in the book, but he’s about to teach them—money can buy power and status, but not real class!

The Uncanny Counter

By Jang E

The word is that the noodle shop on the corner serves broth that’s out of this world. But little do they know…it’s actually run by people from the afterlife! To be more precise, the restaurant is a front for individuals called Counters who have formed contracts with souls from the hereafter. They were given special powers for their job—hunting down renegade souls who have escaped into Earth to prey on the living. When So Mun, a highschooler disabled by a tragic car accident, is invited into the group, he hesitates…until he’s offered a chance to meet his deceased parents as a reward. Can he complete the mission and tell them the words he never got to say?

The Uncanny Counter is a popular supernatural manhwa full of action, thrills, and mystery. The webcomic has received over 844 thousand views and 51 thousand likes on Tapas. The Uncanny Counter also received a live-action Korean drama adaptation that can be streamed on Netflix, with a second season releasing July 2023.

Review: The World After the Fall Vol. 1

A tower one day appeared in the skies, standing out as a beacon of chaos and apocalypse. A heroic and powerful lot known as Walkers cleared the tower floors in order to save humanity, until the day that the Stone of Regression was discovered.

But once the last Walker reached floor 100, he no longer knew what to believe…
