Korea is popularly known for its idols, dramas, and movies. However, were you aware that they have much more to offer? Well, it is still in the arts but more literary. Hidden from the vast majority, Korean web novels are slowly making their existence known. Wait, you’ve never heard of a web novel? That’s understandable, I mean I just said not many know of it. But surely, you’ve heard about Wattpad or Live Journal, right? A web novel is basically the same as the stories published in those sites—I mean before they were overtaken by the onslaught of fanfictions. In this case, I have to emphasize that web novels are original works by amateur writers published online on a chapter by chapter basis. The best thing about it? It’s free! Anyway, as I was saying, the current spotlight on Korea has caused a ripple effect on showcasing many aspects of their culture. This time, the literary gods have blessed us with hardworking translators that dedicate their time and talent to translating the best Korean web novels such as Everyone Else is a Returnee, The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor, and Seoul Station’s Necromancer.
Now that you know what web novels are, it’s time to get down and dirty. There are hundreds of web novels published on Korean websites such as Naver aka the Korean Google. With the help of the mighty translators, voracious readers like me—and maybe our friend Tifany— are given the chance to enjoy the fast food novels from the land of the morning calm. So what are you waiting for? Start digging in as we give you the list of the best Korean web novels.
