Shin Angyo Onshi is a Seinen, Historical, Supernatural, Action, Adventure manhwa that takes a piece of Korean history and turns it into a superb journey for the characters and the readers to experience.

The story follows the adventures of Munsu, an Angyo Onshi, who were special envoys of the king of Jushin. However Jushin is all but destroyed, leaving Munsu on his journey to continue his duty of ridding corruption and bringing about his own form of justice. That’s the setting of this epic Korean manga and sure, in the beginning, there’s a very episodic nature to Munsu’s travelling that frequently pays homage to some of read more

Shin Angyo Onshi is a great manwha.
It took me a while to find this manwha. It is not the typical popular manga that will just pop out and attract your attention. I saw it in the top and give it a try. I remember reading the begining of this manwha, a couple of years ago but it was still in translation and in that time there was only a couple of chapters. Now that I can get a hold to all the chapters (with the extra pages in the forum).

Shin Angyo is about a long adventure of a our hero, Munsu. He is similar and read more

Shin Angyo Onshi is the Korean Berserk. It's as simple as that. Few manga/manhwa can compare to Berserk in terms of art, but SAO even rivals Berserk in that area--SAO's art probably even bettering Miura's detailed work.

For the sake of spoilers, I'll avoid going into detail, but I will say this: Munsu's personality and actions mirror Guts'. His hatred and need for vengeance are also powered by what forces Guts forward (the 'betrayal' of a best friend, as well as a woman in the middle of them and a word starting with 'R'). And as for SAO's villain, not only does he look like Griffith, he has the same creepy smiling-but-evil/manipulative aura.
The story, plot and art-style are uncannily similar
