The Breaker (브레이커)

OMFG!

Reading manhwa! The Breaker (브레이커) is awesome! The story is written by Jeon Geuk-jin and the art is done by Park Jin-Hwan.

The synopsis from onemanga;

A new HR teacher, Chun-woo is a nothing ordinary with his wily ambitions and neglect of a bullied boy, Shin-woo. However, after unexpectedly witnessing his great power, Shin-woo begs him to learn it. They could start their lesson only after Shin-woo throws his body into deep river to prove his will. However, Shin-woo did not know his master is stronger than he can imagine. He was a killer with mastery of nine martial arts who was hiding himself after a big mission!


I love this series to tiny bits - I came into it expecting GTO (that's what everyone was saying), but seriously, it is more Tenjou Tenge. I honestly thought Shin-woo was going to take a back seat to Chun-woo, but OMFG! Shin-woo is like a little PUPPY that is fucking awesome and is like the OTHER hero next to Chun-woo. The artwork for these series is absolutely stunning, and the plot makes me GRIN so very much. I drool over the fight sequence - movement and force all done with a deft hand.

ETA: The manhwa is very much focused on the master/disciple dynamic of Chun-woo and Shin-woo, which is just so damn HEART-WARMING and UNEXPECTED. I have NOT read a series where the paternal aspects of master / disciple is so central to the plot and charm of this series. Like all great fight series the opposition is pretty damn sweet. The martial arts prodigy Hyuk So Chun is like EVERY child-genius character in manga, EXCEPT he is ACTUALLY self aware, and while he gets slightly obsessed about Shin-woo, he is fricking cunning and sneaky about it. Also, SHIHO, OMFG! SHIHO - I LOVES her so VERY MUCH!

Not my favourite, but it is like the default image for this series. This is Chun-woo. Shin-woo! He does not look like this most of the time. Mostly he is cute and adorable, this is when he is PROTECTING someone.
Hyuk So Chun. No, it isn't Touya. For one thing, Hyuk So Chun is much better dressed than Touya, for another, Hyuk So Chun is cool all the time as opposed to DORK when not playing go.

ETA 2: This cover does not do justice to this series.

ETA 3: I decided to do a TINY picspam. There may be more in the future.

Psst, OneManga is going to take down everything by next week - copyright issues, y'know.

Does NOT surprise me at all. To be honest I have other avenues for this series. I hate reading manga online. I do it when there is no other alternative.

Oh gods - I LOVE this series so very much! It has been awhile now since I have been this enarmoured with a fight series! And it is so traditional that I just about dies in glee. JUST LOVES.

OMFG! I CRY BUCKETS in regard to Chun-woo and Shiho. I just read chapter 63, so I 'm going to keep on deluding myself that EVERYTHING is OK.

I didn't expect myself to love Shin-woo as much as I do. I just want to cover him up in blanket, feed him cookies, and COO at him!!!!
