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

I have decided to write this review because I have found other people talking about this series to be a little misleading since they offer plenty of praise without talking about any of the shortcomings of this series, which resulted in me being a little disappointed with it since I picked up this series with sky-high expectations. It is my intention to try and write a review that properly addresses both the positive and negative points of this series so that the reader of this review can approach this series without any misconceptions.

The story focuses on the adventure of Munsu who is an angyo onshi. 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
