25 Korean Drama Based on Manga/ Manhwa/ WebToon/ Webcomic

We have seen lots of Manga, Manhwa (Korean Manga), Webtoon, or Webcomic made into live action dramas in many countries especially countries in Asia. Sometimes, these drama is better than the original itself. But, there are also some that really out of our expectation and made us stop watching it after few episodes.

The good thing about these kinds of dramas are, we already know the story so we won’t be tortured to wait next episode when it airs. Also, we already can imagine all the cast looks like and how would they act. The bad thing is we already had our own imagination and expectation about the story and the cast, so if it not fit into ours, then somehow it will ruin the drama.
