I prefer manga because of the art. No offence but the art creeps me out which is bad because MOST, not all, manhwas have the same art style. I don't read anything that's not beautiful smile. But today its hard to find good shoujo mangas that are original and doesn't have a female lead that you want to throw your shoe at her and I have read manhwas which are definitely better than some manga. So in the future everyone might be reading manhwas. smile

I have to say manga and I'm gonna have to say the art is pretty creepy for shoujo manhwas. Oh and HWANG Mi-Ri is another good reason I usually avoid shoujo manhwas. They seem to have a stranglehold on the market and I'm not a fan of their work.

Manhwa. However, why the exclusion of manhuas....?

In terms of SHOUJO...
I have to say I think I've seen worse shoujo in manhwa. Manga are definitely more generic in general, but they're not at the level as I've seen some manhwa. Hwang Mi Ri, for example. But when shoujo manhwa's good, it's good. I think it's harder to come across good shoujo manga in contrast.

I seem to recall more manhwa in general, bad or good, but I've certainly read more manga than manhwa. So whether good or bad in content, they're definitely more memorable than manga.

Manga but I'm more interested in manhwas now. The best artists are mangakas though and the best stories are in mangas (Kare Kano, Mars, Glass Mask, almost anything Maki Youko, etc) =D It's just that manhwas also provide a different style to their stories so it's something new after reading mangas for so many years. (Girl Queen, anything by Wann, They Too Love, Yeonmo, etc)

Hwang Mi Ri and Han Yu Rang are just two groups of manhwagas from the same company. The manhwagas just publish under the same pseudonym.

Manga. The leads in manhwa always seem too loud mouthed and self-centered and none too bright. But I'm a little biased since my exposure to manhwa is relatively limited.

My priority in reading are:
- webtoon
- manga
- manhwa

Not to say that manga have better story than manhwa, I just tend to dislike the drawing style/ humor in manhwa.

I like both but I also have to say manga rather than manhwa because I also find the art unappealing sometimes like love in the mask I just could not take it cry
