Best Manhwa like Solo Leveling
The equivalent of Anime in Japan is Manhwa in Korea. Both these comics and animation styles have their origin in the Chinese word of Manua. Japan was exposed to the American style of comics, which shaped its Manga and animation style. Similarly, Korea was exposed to the Japanese culture of Manga and anime.
To this date, both Manga and Manhwa have a global audience. With Manhwa like Solo Leveling being the face of this culture.
At a first glance, it might seem that Solo Leveling is based on the classic theme of a Loser getting these immense powers. But, when you go through it, you can feel the layers of emotions and the story arc it carries.
