Der Manhwa Hype ist nicht nur bei uns vorhanden, sondern auch im englischsprachigen Raum! Dies merkt man vorallem daran, dass der Verlag YenPress ein eigenes Label exklusiv für Manhwa und Romane aus Korea ins Leben gerufen hat.
Dieses Label trägt den Namen IzePress.
Gleichzeitig wurden auch schon die ersten Manhwa + Romane vorgestellt.
Diese sind wie folgt:
Ize Press bescheibt die Titel wie folgt:

Meinung des Redakteurs:
Es freut mich zu sehen, dass nicht nur Manga die verdiente Aufmerksamkeit bekommen, sondern auch Manhwa! Als nächstes bitte noch Manhua!
Von den lizenzierten Titeln selber spricht mich spontan nur The Boxer an!
