Webtoons - Cho Seok's Sound of Your Heart

Korean Webtoons in English

In yesterday's JoongAng Daily, I was surprised to see an article by Hong Joo-Hee and Jin Eun-Soo titled "Webtoons aim to draw in more overseas readers" reporting on Korean webtoons in English. What especially interested me was Cho Seok's Sound of Your Heart because it's my son En-Uk's favorite webtoon. For two or three years now, En-Uk's been coming up to me and showing me the series in Korean, which he tries to translate into English, not always with perfect success, but the humor comes through. Oddly, despite its prominence in the image above. nothing is said about The Sound of Your Heart in the article.

Let's therefore go to the website and see more:

The site says this:
While it may seem like a mere depiction of everyday life, The Sound of Your Heart is a comedy filled to the brim with wit, sarcasm and parody. It gives no regard for the probable or realistic - it is a series of absurd situations that is sure to get a laugh out of every reader willing to suspend their sense of reality.
That certainly fits what En-Uk has been translating for me! Check it out - in English!
