1. Solo Leveling
Up to this point, few Manhwa or Webtoon series can surpass Solo Leveling in terms of coverage. Although Korea is not the real cradle of comics, in the past year, Solo Leveling has experienced a surge in its popularity, becoming a craze in the global comic community.
Solo Leveling has a new storyline compared to most current manhwa, enough to retain fans and attract new readers. If you have never read Solo Leveling, it is a pity for comic fans that you have missed out on an extremely quality series.
2. Tower of God
Many people used to call Tower of God the One Piece version of Webtoon. Although comparing these two series seems lame, it is also a way to describe the success of Tower of God. In the world of this series, people can get anything they want by climbing to the top of the tower of gods. But that journey is not easy, especially for Bam, who is determined to climb the tower to meet his friend Rachel again.
The popularity of Tower of God in Korea is comparable to Solo Leveling. With more than 500 chapters and still coming out regularly, Tower of God has brought the first anime season in 2020. With this success, it is not surprising if Tower of God is considered one of the best Manhwa series in 2021.
3. The God of High School
In The God of High School, Jin Mori is a strong martial artist with the determination to become the strongest. The martial arts and action genre may not be too strange to Webtoon readers, but The God of High School will bring new and completely different impressions.
The series was so successful that it was turned into an anime by Studio MAPPA. This success can be partly attributed to the excellent drawing of the series, the eye-catching action scenes and the compelling story setting. If you haven’t read The God of High School, you’ve missed out on an extremely excellent manhwa.

5. The Beginning After the End
Although Solo Leveling is still the manhwa series with the largest coverage, Beginning After the End is not inferior in quality. In 2021, this series is also on the verge of shining and gaining the attention of a large number of readers.
In terms of plot, Beginning After the End is as attractive and dramatic as the webtoons above. From the plot to the characters, the fascinating mysteries and the fierce action, everything is carefully interwoven. For fans of the isekai genre, Beginning After the End is a must-read series.
Eleceed is an emerging series in 2021, with over 160 chapters. The series revolves around Jiwoo, a young man who wishes to use his extraordinary reflexes for good.
