I've honestly been wondering this for ages...

HWANG Mi Ri has tons of manhwa - TONS! (just check out the author's page)

I'd be creeped out enough by the number of manhwas she (they?) has, even if each was only one volume.

But most series tend to reach more than 10 volumes, some like Hot Blooded Woman reaching over 20. Boarding House of Hunks reaches a lot too, with 17 volumes.

But my question is...

How the hell is that even possible?

I thought it was a single person originally (same art style, of course), but then I started thinking it was maybe some group effort when I saw the # of mangas they had. HOWEVER, I own a few volumes of The Moment When a Fox Becomes a Wolf, and in the side flap of the manhwa (where it has the author info), it has a drawing of a chick (with a bear). Here's a scan of it. So my "group effort" theory was kind of thrown off.

As if the massive amount of volumes isn't already weird enough (someone want to count the total # of volumes for me?), how about the fact that the artstyle seems to hardly change?

You typically see most manga/manhwa series that span 10+ volumes get a massive change in artstyle from beginning to end, but even in those long-ass HMR series, the art style seems to have no, if not little, change? K, WUT?

So who the hell is Hwang Mi Ri - some Korean robot? Even if this chick's been writing since the 70s (which is what I've heard), it's still pretty much impossible to draw this much.

SO WTF.

what im trying to ask is ...
what are you trying to say here??
are you questioning her? praising her? or thinking shes supernatural?? what? cause i just think that to keep on having the same artystyle is maybe her style...and mangakas or manhwakas <whatever they are called> are talented people...so perhaps she has a steady hand...so the artwork doesnt change even though she is growing old...

dont be irritated...im just asking...i am not trying to offend you.. smile smile

I never really noticed the art style not changing much, but I haven't read a lot of her manhwa though. But it doesn't change that much. And I was just wondering one of her manhwa You Everything in the World , it was released this year, yet it has 9 volumes completed, from a few months ago? I'm pretty sure normally it takes a few months for one volume to come out, amazing how she could have finished 9 within half a year? And she can't have had it done before, she has new series coming out almost every year.

Who knows? Maybe it's a family of artists with the exact same style? The art has changed over the years, but the past few years, it's been pretty much the same, I think...

Yes, she does a lot, I own quite a few of her works, actually most of the manhwas I own are some of her earlier works. O_O

I'll just throw this out there, (and do not quote me on this) but maybe, just maybe, most of her manhwas were created before her debut (meaning before her work was ever serialized/ released) hence why she has so many out there and why the art- for the most part -is consistent.

And you know, art-style doesn't have to change throughout a long series. Some mangaka do stay consistent with their art.

Year of publication doesn't really relate with the actual time the manga was created by the mangaka. She could have completed a series in 06 and later it was published in 09.

Yes, that is true. And it is possible when you dedicate more than half your life towards it...

And there is the assistant(s). Managakas do have assistants (their roles range from helping them with plots to doing some of the actual artwork); HWR has an assistant.

She must have had a hell of a lot of free time then. And if they were mostly done before her debut, then she should be pretty old by now, considering she started in the 70's.

Erm... it's not possible even if you dedicate your WHOLE life to it. >_>

I've read that doing 10 pages a day (from sketch to finish) is a huge pain in the ass for most mangakas - weekly serializations are only 20ish pages for a reason (even then, it's awful for someone to crank out 20 pages weekly). Those that do near 10 pages a day are those that cram and pull all-nighters.

SHINJO Mayu quit work at Shogakukan because she said her editor was slaving her out to do 100 pages monthly, and that even with that, she only got 3 hours of sleep a day.

So think about it... most mangakas draw one volume (around 180ish pages) every 3-4 months, and that's the normal pace to go at (considering it's basically a full-time job for them). And yes, I know HMR probably has a few assistants at her hands, but so does every mangaka. You don't see THEM cranking out 5 million volumes a year, do you?

I bet she has even more series that wasn't listed here..
That is pretty weird
Edit:.
I counted up (More like adding up the volumes on the calculator..) to 400 something volumes before I lost track..And I wasn't that close to the middle none

Not to mention, most of her storylines and characters tend to be pretty much the same... -_-;;

Okay...O_O

I honestly don't see the problem here...so she has more volumes out in a year than a normal mangaka...so? O_O That just means she's in high demand, good for her. People work at different pace.

laugh Agreed. Putting aside that shoujo (what she specializes in) is really generic, most of her stories are one in the same. Characters too.

You're ignoring the fact that cranking out that many volumes is literally impossible. Dx

It's not impossible when you take into consideration that a good amount of her works don't have dates, and if they do, it's publication date (or even a republication date), not the date she drew it. We also don't know her AGE. Taking this into account, we don't know how long she's could have been in the industry. Also, we don't know how long she's been drawing in general. She could have a considerable backlog of works that haven't gotten published or that she hasn't pushed to get published.

Also, unless you can speak/read Korean and have some knowledge about how popular she is in Korea, we don't know how high of a demand there is for her works. That means there could very much be a situation like you previously stated Dubby, where she's being asked to crank out an ungodly amount of works per month. I'm more likely to believe she's been in the industry with a backlog for sometime then she's pumping out a volume a month, however.
