Option two for me.
In general I rarely read manhwa, manhua and OEL -- and while I look at the genre field first, the plot description second and the 'type' field third, I've noticed that after glancing at the first two, the ones I feel strongly inclined to read are manga anyway. But I really don't have a clear-cut reason as to why.

I like them as much as I like manga. Doesn't matter whether it's manga or manhua or manhwa, as long as it has a nice plot and art, then I'll read it.

I have a book at home with "manga" drawn in all different kinds of styles and coming from all kinds of countries like Norway or the US. It's called Best New Manga or something. I really liked those,...

I really love "manga" that don't come from japan, as much manga, maybe even a bit more, because they sometimes have a certain style. But I wouldn't only read manhwa, manhua, etc. Just like StarlightDreams said, if it is good, it doesn't really matter^^

There's nothing to see here. Proceed with what you were doing or throw rainbows at random pedestrians.

Second option.... but in all honesty, I'm not much of a fan of manhwa & manhua. :\
I find very few that I actually like.

If i get it correctly the diffrence is where they come from, not story or art.
So its irrelevant.
A good one is good
A bad one is bad
And a Great one is Great

Then you don't need Good Luck
You need the ability to overcome Bad Luck

My general feeling of manhwa has been plagued by mass productions by e.g. Hwang Mi-Ri (and plenty others who mimic her/each other) which makes manhwa feel so..... cheap. Still, there's plenty of good manwhas out there like Shin Angyo Onshi, Saver and Ciel to name a few.

I haven't tried that many manhuas so I don't know if I'm just lucky, but I've gotten the impression that they have pretty good quality overall, e.g. 1/2 Prince, Ingènuo, CAT...

In short, they can all be good, so I don't suppose I have any preferences regarding their origins.

No preference.
Some of them just as good as manga.
Beside manga, i read manhwa/manhwa webtoons the most, and a few manhua.

Some of my favorite series' have been "non-manga". That said, I probably read less of them than I do manga.

Eh, they're okay I guess. I've yet to come across any that I really like (the ones I've read have been okay at best) but I'm sure there are better ones out there.
