I'd like to make a recommendation for readers of this manga, but after sitting for approximately 6 minutes, I am only able to come up with... not one. Yes, I have read other stories of this genre; no, I have not read another that can touch the glory that belongs to "The Pale Horse." As a reader of much manga, some manhwa, and the occasional webtoon, I try to pass over three types of stories: "sickeningly fluffed," "pure grit and spit," and lastly, "what in the world did I just read, I can't even-." This story read more

This entire series so far is in opinion... a haunting masterpiece. This series pushes all of the right emotional buttons, and in unexpected ways. The artwork is OUTSTANDING in every way, it takes lots of influence from Victorian era realist artwork. It also pays homage to Victorian Gothic literature, in it's story, tone and pacing.
The story is the highest point of this manhwa. The story starts of as a conventional fairy tale, but this is turned on it's head by having characters you ACTUALLY care about. The pacing and tone start out slow and light hear-ted, but it quickly picks up speed and read more

This series is quite wonderful and its amazing that the artist has been able to sustain the story for so many episodes. It's surprising how it grows in scope so fluidly. There are constantly new story lines being added that create a consistent universe. And there are so many surprises along the way that I would have never seen coming.

I've read the webtoon originally in Korean but there are constantly new translations coming out. one of the recent ones is It just shows that the story is worth sharing continuously. A must read! And the art is amazing too.

I am speechless because of this webtoon , Hope I give it justice by what I'll type
This webtoon is a masterpiece , a very underrated one.

What first catches your attention will probably be the beauty of the art , it is what caught my attention , then once you start the first chapters you will be intrigued to continue and never stop.

Simple story from the synopsis yes ? well it gets an easy 10 / 10 from me , and I'm sad I cant possibly give it more than that , I personally adore shocks and goosebumbs more than anything else in a story read more

I never knew I would find something so introspective and in line to my own thoughts. This manhwa brings out the evil and hope in humanity all into one crazed story about a lady who just wants to be human. The Pale Horse is a mixed thriller, romance, horror, psychological manhwa which will leave you haunted not from the supernatural beings in the story, but in your own thoughts and emotions.

Sin is what makes us human.

While the main plot of the story tries to establish certain sympathy between the reader and every character in the story, no matter how evil or read more

A dark, gothic Victorian fantasy story that explores the different facets of humanity and blurs the duality of good and evil. How this manhwa is not more well-known is frankly criminal. This is one of the most sophisticated and beautifully written manhwa I've ever read with its complex characterization, heavy thematic messaging and deep introspective meaning. It portrays the nuances of love and family, revenge and betrayal, the loss of innocence and the best and worst of human nature. Although I can't really say whether this manga is historically accurate, but it really does seem like the author did her research and took the sociocultural read more
