Yi "Shioon" Shi-Woon's everyday life at Nine Dragons High School—which consists of beatings from fellow student Ho Chang and his gang—is far from ideal. But one day, a mysterious man named Han Chun Woo spots one of these beatings and instead of offering support, brands Shioon a coward for refusing to fight back, adding insult to injury. To Shioon's surprise, he finds out that Chun Woo is the new substitute English teacher at his school.

Tired of the daily abuse, Shioon decides to enroll at a martial arts academy to learn how to defend himself. On the way there, he stumbles upon Chun Woo in a predicament—cornered in an alley by a group of angry men! Provoked, Chun Woo suddenly dispatches them using martial arts techniques, which Shioon covertly records. Later, he uses this recording to blackmail Chun Woo into teaching him to defend himself. Reluctantly, Chun Woo agrees, and Shioon is soon thrust into the world of martial arts, known as Murim. However, Shioon is naive and unaware of his master's shady past and the unseen underbelly of society. How will Chun Woo manage to teach Shioon and help him survive in the world of Murim?

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

Following our protagonist, we are taken through the vast world of a secret martial arts society, the Murim; where the top of the food chain are the strongest practitioners of martial arts. The general plot of this manwha seems to be linear, hero vs villain, hero pulls through in the end; yet there are many surprises. The art and character development are lacking in finesse, but are made up with strong emotion and iron-clad wills. Overall I would rate 10/10 for this based on how easily you get sucked into the story, wanting to see more of our heroes war on evil.

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

Special Note -

This is a Korean "Manhwa," meaning it is created in the style of a Manga, but it is not a Japanese series. The names are Korean in large part, but the main character's master is actually named after a famous school of Muay Thay martial arts, which is a style popular in Thailand.

Story - 10/10

The Breaker was a total breath of fresh air for me. It starts out like a typical shonen, with a young high-school boy being thrown into a dangerous world of super-human warriors, but the story takes many unexpected turns.

The point-of-view shifts between the master and his apprentice, read more
