At first glance, I Am the Sorcerer King seems like a rip-off of Solo Leveling, especially with the basic premise sounding incredibly similar. However, once you get to reading it, you will notice how great and different it is. The best thing you will probably notice in the manhwa is the main character, who plans every step carefully to become strong and keep those close to him safe.

Ever since the world changed, Sunghoon Lee has been struggling to keep himself together, with his mother bedridden due to the magical effect of the constantly changing world. However, while acting as bait for the Awakeners, those who hunt the monsters, he almost dies but remembers his past life, where he was the Sorcerer King. With newfound knowledge, Sunghoon embarks on a path of becoming the strongest Awakener in the world.

The winner can have one wish as long as it is within the reach of common sense, but the story delves into an even larger conspiracy.

Pigpen is one of the most underrated webtoons we’ve read, and that we found on the caliber of Bastard and Sweet Home, both in a sense of genre comparison and story. It is one of those psychological thriller stories that keep you on the edge of your seats but will continue to be entertaining.

The story follows a young man who wakes up on a relaxing beach without knowing how he got there. Usually, a person would think of enjoying the beach, but he has bigger things to do, like piecing everything together from his past to figure out the situation he’s in and how he needs to get out of this wretched place.

The Boxer is arguably one of the sports manhwa/manga you can read, not just because of its intriguing take on Boxing but also due to its exceptional approach to the story. The artwork is incredible, but what you need to pay attention to is the fights and the story development as you read further.

The story is about a weak-looking young man who is often bullied by thugs, but he doesn’t care as long as they don’t injure him critically. But when a boxing coach who is disappointed in all the rookies he came across witnesses the main character dodging a critical blow during a street fight, he is determined to turn him into a champion boxer.
