well, i searched around korean sites, and this is what one of the person said: http://kin.naver.com/qna/detail.nhn?d1id=3&dirId=305& docId=52059328&qb=7ZWc7Jyg656RIO2ZqeuvuOumrA==& enc=utf8§ion=kin&rank=9&search_sort=0& spq=0
something like hwang mi ri is called "factory manwhaga" it's essentially a company that hires assistants and train them to draw manwha in a specific manner (that's the reason why there's no change in style) they company also hires several storyboard makers who essentially makes the story, and the trained 'drawing team' consisting of dozens of artist just draw the art based on the storyboard. The company is able to produce 3-5 volumes a month in this manner, and several artists work on a single volume/page at a time. (I'm amazed how similar the arts are)
the workers are paid salaries, like you would if u were hired by any other company, and not commission. Since there is no actual artist (hwang mi ri is like a brand, not a person) there is no such thing as interviews or profile or anything like that at all.
a lot of korean seem to really dislike this kind of manwha. It ensures that the series will be produced quickly and will not be discontinued, but it also means there will not be any change in style, and being paid in salaries means it doesn't encourage creativity or innovation all that much. It valuels quantity over qualities (also, apparently artist salaries are pretty low)
Whoa you can read that?! (Google failed to translate the page for me )
So cool though, because it's basically the same kind of weird and heartlessness in their (Korea's) talent industry.
“You know what makes humans different from other animals? We’re the only species on earth that observes shark week. Sharks don’t even observe shark week. But we do. For the same reason, I can pick up this pencil, tell you it’s name is Steve and snap it in half and part of you dies, just a little bit on the inside. Because people can connect with anything. We can sympathize with a pencil. We can forgive a shark. People can find the good in just about anything but themselves. You are all better than you think you are.”
