The only one that grabbed my attention some years ago was Ares, but I ended up dropping it because of the artstyle and the story-plot. It just can't put at same level as japanese manga (yet).
    I've had Ares on hold for almost a year. Shin Angyo Onshi is the second manwha that I'm reading and I really like it. Elajtz00r....it's read from right to left because the series was also serialised in Japan.

    I enjoy reading different manwha, the style is generally different but all the same it has its own attractiveness, there are some nice shoujo/romance I can instantly recall being manwha, 100% Prefect Girl and My Girl being two among them (I'm also a big fan of UnbalancexUnbalance)


    I've also started reading Jack Frost, I was a little confused at first and I was wondering what it was a little like Hellsing, but who cares, it's still good. And Zippy Ziggy as well, that manwha is hilarious. Thank you RyColaa for scanlating it.

    One more thing, I've noticed that with manwha, there's more kinda medieval style, swords and quest type story's going around, not sure if it really is the case, but I like those stories every now and then.

    Koreans make some good Martial Arts manga Ragnarok & King of Hell are freakin awesome.
    Hee-Joon Son is great. I love his art and characters. iD_eNTIY (Yureka) is my all time favorite manhwa. Think of it as a .hack with more action and super-powered players as main characters. Then PhD: Phantasy Degree is another awesome series by same author.

    Ah, King of Hell. The art needs more work but the story doesn't seem bad...

    Also, Aflame Inferno...It's awesome!!!

    Also...Kuro Kami. Not sure it should be counted as manhwa though>< Serialized in japan, so it reads right to left.

    The artwork is awesome. Drop dead gorgeous.

    Change Guy is a good martial art manwha. It has good story line and drawing.

    Description from Mangaupdates:
    "Take Kang Too Jee, one of the best fighters in the Gi Sang Area, Woo Soo Choi, a geek who loves studying and has great concentration and perserverance, and mix them up together with a really GREEDY scientists who runs people over and then uses their bodies in a twisted body switching experiment(and dumps their body in a random area after the experiment) and what do you get? Change Guy!

    Woo Soo Choi is now in the body of Kang Too Jee... which is no problem for him until Kang Too Jee's reputation and old grudges catch up to him and he gets into all sorts of fights. Will he manage to get through high school without being trashed all the time and preserve Kang Too Jee's reputation? What would fight loving, battle hungry, Kang Too Jee do in Woo Soo Choi's extremely frail body!? Will they EVER get changed back to their original bodies?"

    khekhekhekhe...
    nothing can ever beat Yureka

    Just read it, ad you'll never stop laughing
    Shin Angyo Aoshi (is that right?) is good too. Eventough the story was heavy (my brain was sh*t) but its fun reading it. The power of a manhwa is the oke. All manhwa i read was full of humor eventough the draing not as god as japanese manga.

    ps; sorry my english s*ck. Its not my native language and i start studying english at 7th grade
    ==a
    maaaaaaan... I wish i can speak english... it's even take hour to write this post.

    ^^a

    I'm abit ambivalent about my take on manhwa. Certainly, alot of them take the weird martial arts route which gets lame pretty soon. However, I'm a huge fan of UXU *don't know how I got into it* and some other stories are decent. Does not hold a candle to a great Japanese manga but heck some are good.

    However, the voilence and constant use of school children and gangs is so boring. It's somehow amazing to realize that almost every martial arts manhwa begins with some brat needing training from some master or already super strong or something along that line. Sighs
