The new English teacher, Chun-Woo, is not your ordinary teacher. Shioon, a victim of constant bullying, unexpectedly witnesses Chun-Woo's fighting power, and begs him to make him his disciple. Chun-Woo claims he can teach Shioon only if he is truly determined, and Shioon must jump off a bridge into a deep river in order to prove it!

It turns out, however, that Chun-Woo and his powers are more than meets the eye. Shioon makes a grand entrance into the hidden world of martial arts, and he is about to be taught by the best there is!

This manhwa is one of my favorites. I started reading it and within a day i was finished and wishing there were more chapters out. so i read it again.

Story - 9

The story starts out like so many other fighting manga or manhwa with a kid whos a little different getting picked on by a bunch of bullies until some adult teaches him some moves. While not starting out very unique it becomes a story about much more than. You start seeing a whole new world that was hidden to normal people that Shi Woon is stepping into. One of the good/bad things about this read more

Although this is ongoing , at 45 chapters read I think it's fair that I write a review at this point in the story .

Story : Although not completely and utterly unheard of [lol ,and what is ,in our days ?! ] it certainly has it's unique points.It takes the story of martial arts to a new level ; one with many epic battles and small details.You will find the story easy to digest ,yet not boring ,mysterious and slowly being formed like a puzzle ,not too fast ,not too slow in development. It also has very good humor sometimes and some romance [my read more

Both are about a boy that gets bullied and tries to overcome bullies by studying martial arts. Both of them are trained in several martial arts. They both have spirit, and don't give up easily. The Breaker is seinen, HSDK is shounen.

More in-line with plagiarism than a show of respect, the beginnings of The Breaker cannot but help one think of GTO/Onizuka. A new badarse teacher starts teaching at a school, bumps into a bullied kid, has to save him from jumping off the school roof and - of course - tries to get it on with a hot female teacher. If not for the art being so fantastic and GTO being equally fantastic, I'm sure this issue would be touched upon more than it has been.

Awhile after its GTO-theft introduction period, it does go off in its own martial arts / The Karate Kid direction. However, it completely goes to shit once the martial arts elite nonsense takes over completely, late on; becoming a subpar shounen fighting manga with A++++ art.
