1st manhwa artist



(source: Janimes)
Yi Do-yeong (이도영) (1884-1933) "[expressed]... his ideas in... form of manhwa through ... [a] popular daily newspaper [(Dehanminbo, 대한민보)]... [in] 1909." He was mostly known for opposing Japan's colonization of Korea through his works.
I know there are some very bizarre myths out there about pretty much anything (i.e. Kiss My Kimchi!: Coreans are Caucasians???). Well, ppl, if u were assuming manhwa came from Japanese manga, now u know it didnt!

That's very interesting. I see he was using sequential art even before it became widespread here in the U.S.
