Today we will talk about Ilkwon Ha’s Annarasumanara Webtoon.
Annarasumanara is a ‘webtoon’, thanks to ilkwon Ha (the Author), that beautifully portrays both sides of society. The one who dares to follow his dreams and the one who, fearing society, stays on the same side AND WHAT HAPPENS WHEN BOTH SIDES MEET.
Wang In Yeop is in talks to star alongside Ji Chang Wook in a Netflix drama called “Annarasumanara” based on the webtoon of the same name.
What is it about:
Annarasumanara tells us the story of a girl named Yoon Ai, she is going through difficult times, she lives alone with her younger sister, she works part time, but still it is difficult for her to get enough money to eat, pay expenses, rent and go to school, so she wants to become an adult as soon as possible, to stop being poor. At her school there is a rumor about an abandoned amusement park and about a wizard who lives there who can make someone disappear. One day by chance she meets the magician, who asks her “Do you believe in magic?”
Basically Annarasumanara introduces us to three characters: Yoon Ah-ee, the protagonist, Eul Lee, the magician, and Na Il-Deung, Ah-ee’s classmate.
About the Author:
Annarasumanara is Ha Il-Kwon’s most popular work, but not the only one. He is also the author of 3 Level Combination, Afterschool War Activities, God of Bath, among others.
On the other hand, the Naver Webtoon portal was in charge of the distribution of manhwas such as Noblesse, Orange Marmalade, Cheese in the Trap, Girls of the Wild’s, Kubera, Nineteen, Twenty-One and About Death.
Ha Il-Kwon’s creativity in terms of his drawing style is also highlighted by his diversity as he adds photographs and cutouts to energize his manhwa. However, these elements have not been included with the sole purpose of making the work more attractive to the eye, but serve as metaphors and allegories so typical of history, a means to send the message, its criticism of society and its cynicism against its own members.
