n. (label en comics) Korean comics


Manhwa ( Hangul: 만화, ) is the general Korean term for comics and print cartoons (common usage also includes animated cartoons). Outside of Korea, the term usually refers specifically to South Korean comics.

Manhwa has been influenced by the dramatic modern history of Korea, resulting in a diversity of forms and genres, including a mainstream style akin to manga. Distinctive manhwa can be found in editorial comic strips, artistically oriented works, and webtoons.
