The story set in the contemporary South Korea. Some 30 years ago, unidentified creatures appeared out of nowhere and have attacked people. They have caused massive destruction wherever they go. The monsters are called "Trouble," and get the world have fallen into chaos. Along with the first appearance of the "Troubles," some number of humans were born with or acquired supernatural abilities. These mutants called "Trace" are the only ones who can fight off the "Trouble." The "Trace" are also considered freaks and generally shunned by the community because some of them misused the powers for their own interest.

The plot revolves around two main characters. Sah Gang-kwon, a high school student born as a "Trace" who attempts to hide his ability. The other is Kim Yun-Seong, who acquired his "Trace" abilities during his early 30s. Soon after the acquisition, his wife and daughter were taken away from him for experimental purposes.

When I first started reading Trace, it looked like an American comic with villains and superheroes of sorts. It didn't seem original at all, but the art was pretty and it updated each day, which is why I kept reading it.

But as I read more and more, I got sucked in. This is that type of a comic that leaves you wanting for more with each chapter. And you find yourself cursing after each cliffhanger.

When I read trough Rose arc I was astonished. It was so intense and deep that I cried the whole day after reading the last chapter of this arc. And that's read more

When i first started reading trace i thought it would have the same story of good vs bad , the only reason that got me to read it was because of the art .

when i first started reading it i thought the story concept was very interesting, especially the idea of traces and troubles. i especially liked the backstory of one of the main characters, the working man. the presentation of this manhwa is very original, as the next chapter frequently repeats the past events in panels. you mainly need to read from the top to the bottom, sometimes left to right but there is not a lot of need to read left to right. in this internet age, it's easy to simply scroll down.

however, what made me turn down this manhwa was the art. yes, the art read more

Only looking at the synopsis, there is nothing impressive about the setting of this manhwa. To tell you the truth, a few chapters into the story, this is exactly what I thought, too.

I was so-ooo wrong.

At first, it seems like the main protagonist of this story would be a high school student, a norm for manga and manhwa alike. However, only after a few chapters, the narration switches to a middle-aged married man, which captured my attention immediately. The story only gets better from there. Readers slowly gather bits and pieces along with our confused main protagonists, information that helped our middle-aged father to read more
