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).

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!

This is my first review here..though ive been reading mangas for years...After reading all 8 volumes and 2 last chapters in 2 days (and thats only cause i started reading it late and went sleep at 4 am) i had to register and say something is absolutely amazing....dont be turned off by the slow start.the character development is great and they havent begun to scratch the surface of the protagonist's potential..although i know most of us refer to the kid as the main char.... i honestly feel the teacher gets as much if not more attention ATM but i see them both as main chars right now ...the art is very good but the story is what stands out though... its the what hooks you and does not let go. i cant wait to see what happens next and there is still plenty more to build on so as long as this stays popular it could run for a while everyone should give this one a try

At first i picked this out because of the cool title, before finding it had so much more to offer. Great characters, interesting & funny plot plus ridiculously cool action make it the best manhwa out of korea since shin angyo onshi and maybe of all manhwa and manga of its genre.
Oh, and the best and most consistent art i have ever seen. EVER>_<

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.

Okay, honestly, at first I was going to give up on it because of the first volume.. I thought it was horrible because he was getting picked on like crazy over and over again. Obviously I was expecting a miracle since this is a manga after all.. the teacher shows up and he didn't help! Plus he looked like a perverted sleaze bag LOL. Boy, was I wrong.
I was basically skimming through the first volume, then skimmed through the first half of the second volume until the little girl from SunWoo clan came up bigrazz (i see some chemistry arising!)
That's when this manga gained my respect. He started going through tough training and started to learn the basics of martial arts, getting beat up so much that he was covered in blood.. and never giving up..
I love how his determination to not lose made that martial arts prodigy boy frightened..
Love it. I can't get enough of this manhwa!

BTW, I know how everyone is complaining about the way he got his power was too easy and etc..that doesn't really matter. What matters is how he's learning how to use that power and how he's growing stronger and how he improves in this foreign martial arts world. He was once this weakling who was afraid to stand up to the bullies but now you see him progressing! Doesn't that amaze you in any way?

And in the latest chapters (chp55) it's getting so intense with all the fighting and action that it makes you want more at the end of each chapter..

I wasn't really into shounen nor manhwa before but The Breaker probably changed that. At first, I was doubtful, of course and had a hard time understanding stuff..and memorizing names - it's Korean, but I got the hang of it.What kept me reading was first of all: Chun Woo. He's a very sloppy yet very cool character. Second was the art. It's not always that you get to read a manga/manhwa that has an awesome plot and art - and characters. For The Breaker, it was pretty much a package deal.

Now, I'm just waiting for New Waves to build up.

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.

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

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.
