My Favorite Webtoon Recommendations By Genre: Drama

Due to my liking for my first post like this, I have decided to list my ten favorite Webtoons for each genre!

And please vote in my poll; I will be compiling all the votes into one list: Top Ten Best Webtoons, and I wish to get as much reader support as I can!

10. Four Quarters, Kurisustinah, ongoing:

Link: Four Quarters

I recently started this one, but this is a Discover Webtoon I’m keeping an eye on. It tells the story of Nana, an ordinary woman who is tired of the world…until she wakes up in a “dating” game. Suddenly, life is a lot stranger. The art may not be the best in the beginning, but both it and the story grow and become really good.

9. The Stories of Those Around Me, Omyo, complete:

Link: The Stories of Those Around Me

Although Salty Studio is the more well-known of omyo’s comics, I prefer The Stories of those Around Me. It tells the collective tales of Mira, Jung-A, and Summer, and each of their experiences  in romance.  It comes across as less of a romance, and more of a character study in some parts, and each character is interesting.

8. About Death, Sini/Hyeneo, complete

Link: About Death

This is one of the most thought-provoking Webtoons I’ve ever read. It’s not exactly a continuing story, but it tells short stories about people’s experiences after death, and what lead to their deaths. The depiction of God isn’t exactly part of any existing religion, but this Webtoon is interesting and incredibly beautiful.

7. Aisopos, complete:

Link: Aisopos 

The only historical Webtoon I’ve read (other than Lackadaisy), it tells the story of Aesop in his life. I’m not far, but this is very interesting, and Aesop’s story is incredibly moving and touching. In season 1, he’s just a sweet child trying to survive.

6. Bastard, Youngchan Hwang, Carnby Kim, complete:

Link: Bastard

Art link: unknown

This is more of a thriller than a drama, but it has dramatic elements. A rift between parent and child (a pretty dang messed up one), feels, romance, misunderstandings….all taken to the max to keep you on the edge of your seat. You will become incredibly drawn into this, and it’s the perfect binge-read.

5. Split, Kae and Dahae, ongoing:

Link: Split

An interesting version of DID: not a thriller at all, but more of a rivalry where one is unaware of their adversary. Indeed, it is Sakuya’s (the main character) unawareness of Haruka’s (his split personality) existence that makes this interesting; she is messing with his life, and he has no idea.

4. Space Boy, Stephen McCranie, ongoing:

Link: Space Boy

Fanart link: unknown
This may be science fiction, but it is definitely a drama as well. It has a girl moving to a major location from a smaller one (space colony to Earth), and includes friendship problems, a love interest, adjusting to a new life, and underneath it all, a strange mystery that our lead character, Amy, is trying to solve.

3. Cheese in the Trap, soonkki, ongoing:

Link: Cheese in the Trap

Fanart link: Cheese in the Trap Fans

This is less of a romance and more of a drama. We have an over analytical main character,a shady love interest, school troubles, and small twists that actually happen in real life. Overall, this is truly a character study that analyses how and why people behave the way they do; every character is explored in depth, even the vexing ones.

2. Annarasumanara, Ilkwon Ha, complete:

Link: Annarasumanara

Fan Art Link: Annarasumanara

This starts off similar to a Disney movie; poor, cynical girl is swept into a magical world (amusement park) by an intriguing stranger, all while discovering her old dreams. But as it goes on, reality creeps in, and it begins to even give off a Ghibli vibe; magical, yet realistic. Again, characters are studied in depth, and we see how society and pressure shape people into who they are. It shows how different people change, and the variety in how they do so; some adapt, and some break.

1. Dr. Frost, JongBeom Lee, “complete?”:

Link: Dr. Frost

This is NOT completed. Trust me, season 3 HAS to be on its way. Anyway, this is the ultimate character study! This follows the story of Dr. Frost, a psychologist who cannot experience emotions like sympathy and affection. Yet he is still able to find the roots of his patient’s problems, all while having his own mystery unraveled. If you want to see amazing character development, understand why some people act the way they do, witness interesting relationships (friendship, parental, adversarial, and a unique Holmes and Watson team), and experience one of the greatest character studies ever, all wrapped in a mystery show vibe, this is perfect for you.

My next genre recommendation will be fantasy!

  1. I’m reading Dr. Frost and Four Quarters. Oh man, so many on your list I now want to read reading hahaha. I’m reading too many though, so I’ll try to resist until one finishes or something ^_^

    1. Well, if you subscribe to Webtoon, you’ll get a notification whenever a comic updates, so that isn’t a problem. 😊 Or you can check out some of the completed ones! I’ll put in a “complete” or “ongoing” as a status thing. And which ones are you interested in?

      1. I just realized that. I thought I had signed up, but whoops. ^^; Four Quarters and Annarasumanara look the most interesting. I’ve already added them to my list to read later and will be keeping an eye out for more recommendations. 🙂

      2. That’s okay! And ohmigosh Annarasumanara! It’s one of the few Webtoons on the site I would call a masterpiece…the art, characters, and writing are some of the very best. Four Quarters art is not the best in the beginning, but as I catch up, I can see the improvement! And yay, glad to be able to help!

  2. Loved all of these recs! I’m especially interested in #10, #5, #3, #2 and #1 (as I’ve probably already mentioned before) but I’ll definitely want to try all of them, if I get the time.
    I just realized I was missing a lot of great webtoons because my app doesn’t have them… Ugh! Now that I know that I need to either find a better one or just go straight to the source material. What’s your method?
    Awesome post, of course ^^

    1. Yep! They’re all good, but the ones you mentioned (especially the last three lol) are amazing!
      Hmm, I just got the Webtoon app. That’s what I use. So yeah. Some are in different genre sections, or in the discover section. Or you can go on the computer site if that doesn’t work.

      1. I have that one too but for some reason, when I searched for some of the titles (like Four Quarters) they didn’t show up… So I tried typing just one or two of the words in the title and there they were (mocking me) -_-
        Oh well, guess my searching skills are just bad XD Thanks anyway! The app is so much more convenient and lets me know when there’re updates, which is great 🙂
