The Manhwaxyz series of movies is one of the most popular Korean movie series in recent years. In fact, its popularity has spread to the American market and other parts of the world. Read on to find out more about the origins of the series, its popularity in the American market, and its anime adaptations.
Origins in Korea
Manhwa is the Korean term for comics. It was originally created as a form of propaganda during the Japanese occupation. The Japanese language and culture was incorporated into Korean society.
The popularity of manhwa reached its height during the 1950s and 1960s. By the end of the decade, the government imposed strict censorship rules on it. However, the comics industry in South Korea began to grow. In response to this, the government established a monopoly for comics distribution in the country.
During the 1920s, cartoons became popular among children. These were often humorous and filled with adventure. Eventually, they began to develop into comics and drama.
In the mid-1960s, the censorship laws on comics increased, and the sex and violence in manhwa reached an all-time high. As a result, many Korean cartoonists had no choice but to write for the Japanese propaganda.
Despite the strict censorship, manhwa art gained a new life after the country’s liberation in 1945. The influx of Japanese manga, which was also very popular in Korea, influenced manhwa artists.
