3. Book Intro

 

Ho! is a cartoon that brings to mind a long list of words that make you feel good. It was one of the most popular webtoons on Naver during its serialization, and reading it in book form is a whole new experience. The storyline flows more naturally, engaging the reader as intended by the author, who had the book form in mind. The sophisticated use of empty space and details makes readers feel as though they’re looking at watercolor paintings. Ho! is an extraordinary cartoon that leaves one feeling healed and happy, which is a rare thing in an era deluged with stimulating but short-lived content.
Eoksu-si, the cartoonist, has shed a warm light on the difficult lives of the youth living in this era. In this book, he does the same with the love story between Won, an ordinary guy and Ho, a lovely girl who is hearing impaired. The story unfolds naturally from past to present, like a trip down memory lane. It is engaging without exaggeration, making it easy for readers to sympathize with the characters’s thoughts and feelings.
The sophistication of the artwork, as well as the subtle charm of the dialogue, touch the sensibility of the reader with even greater power in the book form. It’s a beautiful book you’ll want to keep by your side at all times.

3. Book Intro

 

The story is set in the late 2000s, in the French-headquartered supermarket "Purumi." The story has two main characters: Lee Soo-in, who was ordered to fire people, and the labor activist Gu Go-sin. Lee is a type of person who strictly follows rules and principles, and do not hide his discomforts when he saw injustice. But to live quietly, he leaves army and chooses an ordinary job. But as the company orders him to dismiss employees without fair reasons, he once again stands up against the world. Gu Go-sin is a cold-hearted, experienced labor activist who runs a consulting office for workers near Purumi. Unlike Lee, who is conservative and does not get along well with people, Gu does not hesitate to approach people and sometimes do whatsoever if he could get what he wants. The book is a story about how the two help "nice and common" people open their eyes to their rights and how they change together.
Other characters add realism to the story. Joo Kang-min is trustworthy and helps Lee and Gu. Jung Mincheol, Lee's supervisor, is an ivy-league graduate and envious of Lee. Nam Donghyup enthusiastically participates in the labor protest but is hostile to Lee. And Yoo Jonghak, the union leader, is tired of never-ending battles. These three-dimensional characters created by the artist's insight into human beings is another attraction of Awl.
