There is nowhere that Seon Jin can find solace. At school, he is ruthlessly bullied due to his unsettlingly quiet nature and weak appearance. However, this is not the source of Jin's insurmountable terror: the thing that he fears more than anything else is his own father.

To most, Jin's father is a successful businessman, good samaritan, and doting parent. But that is merely a facade; in truth, he is a deranged serial killer—and Jin is his unwilling accomplice. For years, they have been carrying out this ruse with the police being none the wiser. However, when his father takes an interest in the pretty transfer student Yoon Kyun, Jin must make a decision—be the coward who sends her to the gallows like all the rest, or be the bastard of a son who defies his wicked parent.

I do love to read on Webtoons a lot. There are a lot of hidden gems on Webtoons. Bastard was a masterpiece of a comic. I wish they would make a EN version to purchase. I watch Sweet Home. Which Sweet Home is based off the story from the same writer of Bastard. Anyways, there is an easter egg where one of the characters was reading a physical manga copy of Bastard but, in Korean. Webtoon has been making more physical copies in EN more lately. So, hopefully someday this series will have a physical copy as well.

Mixed Feelings
Bastard is very overrated in my opinion. It contains 2d, uninteresting characters, so what happens to the main characters didn't really matter to me. Plot is also too predictable/unrealistic.

The story builds up, only to get a weak ending.

It didn't really feel like a psychological horror, but just random psychological horror elements put in one story with uninteresting characters. They fight for no reason, just for the sake of fighting. There are also no real motivations/explained why the characters do the stuff they do.

Besides that is the art style pretty.

Recommended if you like a non deep story that leads to nothing, the beginning was interesting tho.

I’m sorry for the bad English but I'm so pissed and confused that I had to write something. I know this is a manhwa but it feels like a kid tried to write a mystery/horror manga. It's so childish and cliche at times that it makes you wonder what's doing with 8+. It does have some charm that makes you keep reading regardless of the silliness of it, but it's not good enough to be this high, I guess people dont have high hopes for manhwa when they rated this high? I don’t regret reading it but it just doesn't feel complete enough, the ending ...
