Soompi is excited to announce that it will be working with the webtoon platform, Spottoon, to bring you two exciting titles, “Shall We Have Dinner Tonight?” and “Monster Idols,” to read directly on Soompi starting today!
Webtoons are serialized online comics from South Korea that are optimized for mobile devices, read vertically and full of amazing stories and artwork. You may not have read a webtoon before, but chances are that you have seen a K-drama or film based on a webtoon. 2016’s webtoon-turned-dramas include “Cheese in the Trap,” “My Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul Ho,” and the forthcoming “Master: God of Noodles,” “Lucky Romance” and “The Mermaid’s Prince.”
Spottoon is a platform that brings a diverse selection of webtoons from highly acclaimed artists like Yoon Tae-ho, NastyCat and Kang Full to an English-speaking audience. “Shall We Have Dinner Tonight?” and “Monster Idols” are two webtoons that highlight why many fans of K-culture have fallen in love with these stories.
“Shall We Have Dinner Tonight?” is a thoughtful love story, spinning the tale of two broken hearts that are brought together through food. Readers will find themselves drooling over the countless images of delicious Korean food that appear in each episode, and will appreciate how the theme is integrated meaningfully throughout the webtoon.
Meanwhile, “Monster Idols” is a supernatural take on K-pop that centers on a sweet rookie stylist who is drawn into the world of an insanely popular boy band after she discovers that they aren’t human.
