We're used to K-dramas based on manhwas or webtoons and they've been popular since the early 2000s, back when Korean series were still called Koreanovelas. With the evolving content distribution and growing market in South Korea, it's now the other way around—K-dramas have become the inspiration for webtoons!

Earlier this year, the cult favorite Our Beloved Summer was simultaneously released into a 16-episode series and a manhwa. Fans were able to watch it on the small screen and read it on Naver Webtoon at the same time (the series tells the lead characters' stories as adults while the webtoon version is a prequel about their high school life), and it was a huge success with almost five million views on the webtoon platform!
