The Breaker  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
The new English teacher, Chun-Woo, is not your ordinary teacher. Shioon, a victim of constant bullying, unexpectedly witnesses Chun-Woo's fighting prowess, and begs him to make him his disciple. Chun-Woo claims he can teach Shioon only if he is truly determined, and Shioon must put his life on the line to prove it. It turns out, however, that Chun-Woo and his powers are more than meets the eye. Shioon makes a grand entrance into the Murim (the hidden world of martial arts), and he is about to be taught by the best there is!

The Breaker series has 2 parts, of which "The Breaker" is Part 1 (vol 1-10) and "The Breaker: New Waves" is Part 2 (on-going).

Whoever suggested "character growth"

was misleading people, because whatever "growth" there is in this series, it's so instantaneous and without any grounds at all. Main char starts off as a wuss, and then all of a sudden is revealed to be this really talented, really simple-minded guy (simple-minded because it takes one lesson for him to get over his fear and somehow show he's got such a huge amount of "spirit").

Speechless, go read it yourself. You will not be disappointed and I have to say myself, that this is one of the best mangas. Great conclusion, there's even a sequel! The sequel doesn't suck either, its even better actually.

I don't think I've ever read anything this great! I kept putting this one off for a while. Turns out I shouldn't have. The pace is just perfect! I don't see where it's slow, since it gives you the opportunity to enjoy every moment to the fullest. It's the first time I've actually cut down on my sleep, devouring a book!
Now go read it yourselves, people!

As others have said in the comments below, this manhwa started out pretty slow. The humor is mindless and in my opinion, tasteless, too. It's not that funny at all... but again, that's my opinion. The action is AWESOME. It's so good! Very creative. I can't believe how well drawn this is. The art is typical of shonen, I think. Intensifying the male quality (ABS) and the female quality (...boobs..etc.) And the abs are to die for.

I'm a shojo fan, btw, (though I do read shonen pretty often) so haha this kind of plot doesn't always click with me. Regardless of its genre, it's silly not to appreciate good art and plot when u see one. I love fight scenes in general. Good ones like this get my blood pumping. Even when he's losing, he still gets up... it's soo....squeelllll!!!! he is so so so cooooollll~~~ (i'm grinning like an idiot as i watch this, lol I'm such a fangal).

Chapter 3 is when they started training... when the main guy took the strength pill thingy. And started having abnormal amount of Ki in this body.
Chapter 5 is about when he started to fight by himself.

Damn if people have stopped reading The Breaker after the first few volumes it's really too bad, because (can I say this?)
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
shit hits the fan near the end
and I'm pretty sure I shed a tear. Really, what makes manhwa like this amazing is the crazy build-up that leads to the final moment and all you can do is breathlessly read each page in amazement. Noblesse did that to me, and now The Breaker has done it once more. I can't wait to read New Waves when it's complete smile

I've actually started reading this manga 2 or 3 times already but has never been able to pass the beginning because it was just brainless humor. However, about 2 weeks ago I'm glad I was able to make up my mind and finally got passed the beginning.

In the beginning, the author wants to make you know that none of these main characters get along but they put with each other because of their titles. Goumooryong is Shioon's teacher (so he puts up with Shioon this way); Shiho is a coworker to Goumoonryong by name and they put with each other that way. However, as this story develops, the author wants you to know that they still act like they do in the beginning but all they got is each other; rescuing and reassuring each other that there are dire consequences for any rules that aren't followed.

I love the bitter tragedy at the end. Towards the ending, I'm thinking "this is how it's gonna end" but it ended COMPLETELY different from what I had in mind. I love the twist and overall, the art style is amazing. The fighting is easy to understand; Goumoonryong's able to relate to Shioon as a student in various ways, which also helped him made the choices he made at the end. Lovely and extremely powerful story.

This thing is disappointing...

It begins with promising arc, with strong willed main character that want to learn martial art in order to get stronger. Unfortunately, as the story progress, it tuns out that the main character is just some snot-nosed whiny kid who can't handle his problem.

It has similarity with History Strongest Disciple Kenichi, only HSDK have cooler version of wimp.

The Breaker is also really slow paced. It takes likes 10 chapters to finally understand why the main character is complete wimp, and another 10 chapters to try to fix it.

The comedy also isn't that funny. The only character who is really can deliver nice laugh is the martial arts teacher, which don't appear that often in the series.

Well, perhaps I'm just biased because I always like a strong willed main character which fun and not as boring as the main character in this series. But I believe that this manga is really over-rated.

I just picked this up 'cause it said it was completed and figured from the reviews, why not? First volume, I was like, "Hmmm...a lot of explaining, kinda cool." And then from then on, my mind got blown away.

The art is AWESOME!! Damn, how the artist draw abs like that, I want to see him draw them so I can learn from him. Aside from that, his drawing keeps you hook along with the action and storyline. Unlike some action manga I read where the movements can be confusing after a while, I can clearly see how it is done and it make sense to me.

Character development is another plus. We see this wimpy kid who is got no athletic skills who ate this energy pill thingy and then started to train his body to maintain that energy. It's pure awesomeness to see this kid grow in mentally and physically. He doesn't want to use his power to prove he's stronger, but to use those power to protect against the bullies and his love ones.

The twists are good as well. Some were funny as hell, some were unexpectedly cool, etc. Recommended to all!! Did I said it is pure awesome?

Definitely in my top 3 favorite Manhwa. It starts a bit slow, but by the end its pretty awesome. It has some twists and turns towards the end that make it worth the wait. I also think the art is darn good and overall I think its a superior story to Veritas which has some similarities.

I definitely recommend it and I can't wait to start reading the sequel.

I loved this series! It's soo good! I like the art alothough I found it abit odd initially. The characters and plot is also really interesting. But I found it didn't really pick up until Vol.2, so if you are thinking about reading it, stick with it!
