Best Korean Comics to Read
The Remarried Empress

That is until her husband brought home a mistress and demanded a divorce. After many ups and downs, Navier decided she would accept being the Queen of the neighboring country and remarry. Read Manhwa: Webtoons Read Novel: FanTranslation Remark: First of all, Navier is my favorite female main character. Now, let's talk about the story. I like everything about this story, be it the Art, Characters, Plot, World settings, etc. All are done great but one complaint I have is in some places the story feels somewhat stretched. Besides this minor issue, The Remarried Empress is a good story to read.

But when the novel suddenly becomes reality, he is the only person who knows how the world will end.

Read Manhwa: Webtoons Read Novel: Webnovel Remark: Everything about this story is topnotch. Even if you felt first fifteen chapters(novel) not so interesting. Keep reading and I gurantee the story becomes great. Now talking about the webtoon, webtoons is adpated well from the novel. Overall, Webtoon or the web novel both are very solid interms of world building, characters and the art. Lastly, I want to say don't think, because Main character knows everything, he is overpowered. That's not the case.
