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

So for those that don't know I like to learn something every time I read a manga or watch an anime. Case in point 'The Breaker' is a Manwha which is a Korean manga and a Manhua is a Chinese manga, just so you know what those mean, now TO THE REVIEW.

The Breaker, at first, looks like it's going to be one of those bully revenge stories, but thank Christ it wasn't, it's about (correct me if I'm wrong) the world of underground martial arts and what happens when people who have apparent monstrous amount of Ki fight. I only thought Ki was the fundamental 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

I have this tendency to read the first chapter of a manga / Manwha i find interesting from the synopsis and cover art and if I'm not intrigued by the first chapter i move on, but do not fear The Breaker was not something that i "moved on" after the first chapter. This Manwha had me up from 11:30pm all the way to 6:00am!. I'm sure you have all had some sort of anime or manga that has kept you up through the night, making your eyes betray you forcing your eye lids to close as if your eyes were pulling the curtains down, read more

Manga: Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi
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.

Manga: GTO
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  read more

Manga: Veritas
If you Like one then you will like the other, I promise you that. both martil arts, action, school life Manhwas, both protagonists want to get stronger, both have to beg masters to teach them, both get unreal powers. i could keep on going for a while. while they both have simlar settings the story are very different mainly because of the protagonists, one is a strength baka introduced into a world of genius and superhumans. while the other is weaking being pushed into a corner and make to get stronger to protect. the breaker is darker and in more real that veritas. trust me, to love one  read more

Manga: Girls of the Wild's
A series about fighting and martial arts. The Breaker and Girls of the Wild's explore the development of a main male character as he realizes his life changes forever after one faithful day. And in his new lifestyle, the main main male character must learn skills in order to defend himself. There are many characters in both series with techniques and serves as challenges for the MC. Throughout their perspective stories, romance also becomes a sub-plot as the MC impresses certain female characters. I recommend both series for anyone interested in a medium involving high paced action and a story of integrity.
