10 New Webtoons To Read (2023)
Synopsis: What if your soul could leave your body and possess people — or even animals? Thanks to an incident in the past, that’s what happens to Marshall Lidiance every time she passes out or falls asleep. No one knows her little secret, but things become problematic for Marshall when she gets absorbed into a teddy bear owned by the icy-cold Duke Ludvillian! Will Marshall be able to figure out what caused the soul absorption while still keeping it a secret from everyone?
My Review: The Duke’s Teddy Bear is a historical romance webtoon with some supernatural/fantasy elements to it.
Note that there’s violence in the first couple of episodes, this may be a trigger to some readers. However, it explains how Marshall got her powers and is essential to the story.
The art style is very pretty and amplifies the historical romance setting. Besides Marshall and the Duke, there’s more to the webtoon, which enriches this story.
Synopsis: Cassia works a Dead-End job, lives in a cramped apartment, and can’t remember her own last name. Good thing she has a sexy vampire boyfriend who lives in her dreams- if only he were real, then maybe life wouldn’t suck so bad.
My Review: Blood Reverie is fairly new. It only has 43 episodes (up-to-date).
To begin with, it is a fantasy webtoon romance written and illustrated by the same creator of My Dear Cold Blooded King.
So if you’re a fan of that popular romance webtoon (which also happens to be a historical fiction romance), you will be so excited to dive into this one!
The art style is exactly the same as My Dear Cold Blooded King.
There are other Webtoon references like Lore Olympus, Subzero, Midnight Poppyland and more hidden in the comic panels, which I personally enjoyed!
If you’re looking for a spicy webtoon, this one is for you!
3. Let’s Get Divorced!
Synopsis: After her “storm kick” video goes viral on the Internet, Baek-hui is too humiliated and ashamed to live in Korea and wants to relocate to a different country. To do so, she agrees to marry Han-gyeol, who holds a permanent resident status in Australia, and plans to divorce him as soon as she gets her visa. However, to receive their marriage certificate, they must prove that their love is “legit.” How are they going to do that when their marriage is a fraud?
My Review: Let’s Get Divorced is a marriage of convenience trope webtoon.
However, it kinda feels like Baek-hui is cheating Han-gyeol since he doesn’t really get anything out of the relationship once Baek-hui gets her residency.
Morally, it doesn’t sit well with me. However, it seems like the two end up getting closer to each other as she “plays pretend”. Maybe she will not leave him afterall.
Synopsis: Jia Han, a 32-year-old freelancer with no work, is tired of her parents nagging her to get married and finally move out. When she runs into her childhood friend, Mincheol Jin, who is also feeling the same pressure from his parents, she blurts out that they should just get married to solve both of their problems. Little did she know he’d accept her suggestion, and she suddenly finds herself thrust into marriage. A story of an unexpected romance that’ll have you scrolling for more!
My Review: With only 4 episodes in, this webtoon has already captured the hearts of many. The art style is super cute and is hard to dislike.
The characters are also relatable as their problems are very real.
It seems the older sister (the main character) is not following the standards her parents have set for her (stable job, marriage) while the younger sister has it all.
With all the pressure, Jia Han decides to solve her problems by getting married ro someone who also feels the same pressure from their parents.
Besides, who doesn’t love a fake marriage trope? I can’t wait to see how this love story escalates.
Synopsis: Elena Taylor, the former villainess of a romance story, has decided to walk away from the main story and open a Romance Counselling business. As an independent woman trying to find her footing in society with her fledgling venture, she is given the hardest request she’s ever encountered: help the sub-lead of the main plot, Hugh Godwin, debut in High-Society and get married, or get kicked out of the building she lives and works out of! Elena soon realizes that she’s in trouble when she meets Hugh, a burly, muscular bear of a knight who’s been burned by love. Will Elena be able to convince Hugh to find romance and keep her business running?
My Review: This webtoon romance manga is pretty unique compared to many of the romance webtoons.
This is because the female lead is not just strong and independent but also owns a business – you don’t really see many female leads owning their own business.
They’re mostly always struggling in their career or working for someone else. It is nice to have this type of female representation.
Also it is pretty bold for one to walk away from heart-break and then immediately start a business and thrive in it.
I think this is too good to be true and Elena is going to face some major challenges when Hugh Godwin makes an entrance.
Synopsis: Welcome to Wellenberg, Meuracevia at the turn of the 19th century. The fate of Serenity Hotel, an opulent hotel in the nation’s capital, hangs by a thread as its headstrong heiress Serena and her stern husband Eiser struggle to turn its fortune around. Their loveless marriage of convenience takes a twisted turn following Serena’s jealous attachment to her stoic and handsome servant, Frederick. At a time when happiness takes a back seat to one’s sense of duty, will Serena be able to protect her love and ensure the survival of her family and her business?
My Review: First of all, Serena, the webtoon is known for it’s beautiful art. It’s hard not to like a webtoon with art that’s this enchanting.
Serena is a heiress with past trauma. She is the only one in her family who survived a tragedy and to keep her family legacy going, she marries a man that’s capable enough to keep her family business going.
She’s unhappy with her marriage and finds fullfilment in social events, alcohol, clothes and jewelry.
I think this webtoon is quite different from other historical romances and is worth reading!
Synopsis: The man of her dreams does exist… too bad she can’t fall asleep. When Eve is visited one night by a mysterious apparition, she finds that her chronic insomnia is miraculously cured. Meanwhile Dae, the dream eater, finds himself unexpectedly and unwillingly drawn to Eve. This can either be a dream come true or their worst nightmare.
My Review: Yay! Another new webtoon from a best romance webtoon creator – instantmiso (creator of Siren’s Lament).
The art style is similar to Siren’s Lament. Anyone who misses that webtoon and wished it never ended should definitely check out this new webtoon.
Plus, in this webtoon, the characters have deeper skin tones. I think this is important to mention because most of her characters in Siren’s Lament were quite light skinned.
Since the webtoon was popular internationally, this type of diversity matters and I am so glad the author decided to do that!
This is also a fantasy romance webtoon – the male lead is a dream eater (quite a unique fantasy creature in the Webtoon world considering all the sirens, vampires and witches/wizards we’ve seen on the app).
Synopsis: After moving away for a decade, Rhea returns to the bustling city on her quest for independence. Things are looking bleak, until she bumps into a familiar face – one she didn’t think she would ever see again. Feelings rekindle as secrets begin to unfold, Rhea soon realizes her childhood friend may not be who she believes him to be, and thus her most cherished relationship is put to the test.
My Review: One thing that instantly made me read this webtoon – the art. It is so gorgeous.
Both the main female and male lead are so beautifully illustrated. I cannot stop reading it!
This is a childhood friends to lovers webtoon which is something we don’t have a lot of on the app. Especially because the romance blooms due to an accidental reunion.
9. Vixen: NYC
Synopsis: Before starting college, Mari Jiwe’s relatives gift her an ancestral totem, once fabled to give its wearer the powers of the animal kingdom. Mari just chalks its ‘magical powers’ up to superstition. After arriving in New York City, though, she definitely notices something strange about her new home. Especially the animals. While Mari battles staying awake in class and feral subway rats, dark plans emerge from the corners of the vast metropolis. Girls who look just like her start going missing and Mari can’t shake the feeling that she’s next. As for the totem? Turns out that the ‘magical powers’ are actually a thing, and Mari is next up to wield them. Freshman year is gonna be a doozy.
Webtoon definitely portrays a new generation of webcomics. Together with DC’s iconic characters and Webtoon’s modern take – this new webtoon has quickly become a fan favourite.
Also, the main character is POC and we love that representation here!
10. Pirates Maid
Synopsis: Ishi must find and save the prince from the ruthless pirates who ravaged the palace. To her surprise, the captain of pirates just so happens to be her former love interest.
My Review: This new webtoon is steamy because of its forbidden love trope.
Main lead looks like a combination of Taro from Midnight Poppy Land and Hayate from My Dear Cold Blooded King (my personal opinion).
The art style is pretty unique compared to most Webtoons that I’ve read.
