Overview

Four-panel comic strips and short comments about happiness and issues that people around thirty might experience in relationships, at work, and in their daily lives.

Book Intro

Are we mature enough to be called an adult when we turn thirty? But at the same time, isn’t age thirty too old to say that we are still young?

A webtoon that people in their thirties can deeply relate to as they go through a tunnel of instability and anxiety. 

Hudult, a webtoon posted serially on web portals (Naver, Daum), Facebook and Instagram, is now published as a book. Through characters Hyeseon and Sanggyu, who are around thirty, the book effectively captures problems related to romance, relationships, career, age and life, which people around that age might have, using witty, not-too-exaggerated illustrations and short speeches. As soon as it was published, the comic strip received immense attention and was selected as the “Best Webtoon”. 

It’s the simple storyline and theme that readers—especially working people in their thirties—welcomed, as it stuck out in the midst of most webtoons that presented provocative and extreme subjects. The book version carries, besides the 200 episodes, additional illustrations describing the in-depth stories of main characters that was difficult to express in a four-panel format, which makes it all the more meaningful to keep it on your shelf. 

The book uses a four-panel format to depict in a gentle and sympathetic tone the problems that people around thirty might have, leaving a lingering emotion inside us when we finish the book and making us wonder, “what if this happened to me?” The characters that have similar concerns are another factor that draws readers to the story. People around thirty struggling with their work life, relationships and romance will be able to find the book comforting and relatable. 

About the Author

BOTA



‘BOTA’ is the name of a project. 

A couple of friends who met at work came together and started a fun project, that is, serially publishing Hudult, a four-panel webtoon.

They illustrated their own stories without much expectation, but it became a huge hit from the very first episode, praised as a webtoon that people can relate to and find comfort from. 

Published twice a week for two years already, it has reached its 200th episode and finally been compiled into a book. 

When someone asks, I’m planning to say I did all the good ones, and others did the bad ones.
