Japanese Web Novels are nothing to scoff at either but there’s something about the ones from Korea that makes them truly special. And I’m always looking for new Web Novels to read, so here are the Best New Ongoing Korean Web Novels that you should definitely try out! (All of them have good translations so you don’t have to worry about that part)

7. I Was Possessed By An Unknown Manga
“Scramble Love” was a Japanese hit love comedy manga with more than 10 million copies. I was possessed by a manga I had never seen before. Or, more precisely, I became a sidekick with no importance.
As one would expect from a comedy, the plot is cringe-worthy. Romantic but boring, the plot is excellent yet stupid. Despite its weak jokes, it’s quite interesting and entertaining. If you’re a fan of the Jojo series, you’ll understand the bizarre situations in every scene, lol.
6. Why Did I Have To Enroll
As a child, when Ban Yu-won first learned about the existence of the fictional building called the Tower of Babel in the Bible, his respectable grandfather told him it was their ancestors who built it. “Tower of Babel was completed without collapse, and people have the wrong idea.” That’s what he said.
He refuted it, saying that it was absurd, but… he gets an invitation letter to a prestigious inter-dimensional university… in a status window…
5. Pseudo Resident’s Illegal Stay In Another World
“Where the f*ck am I?” One day, he suddenly fell into a world of barbarism and superstition. “F*ck, I ain’t a savage!”
It’s an isekai story, but the mc is not overpowered from the start. The main character is likable, and the character development is good. And, yes, it is a harem.
The MC begins as a s*ave in another universe where his life was, to put it mildly, abysmal. He couldn’t even feed himself. Previously, he had been forcibly taken to another realm by a random hot girl he encountered on the street. There will be R-18 sequences in the novel, but it will take some time, therefore patience is required.
4. Love Letter From The Future
Ian Percus, the second son of a countryside Viscountcy. One day, he received a love letter from the future. ‘If we don’t protect the future, the world will perish.’ With an ominous warning scribbled by someone…
This novel tells the story of Ian Percus, our main protagonist. Ian is the second son of the Percus family, a country writer. One day, his life gets completely changed when he wakes up from a strange dream and gets a love letter… from the future. A future with only pain and regrets, a world destined to end.
He gets letters from his lovers from a distant future. A future that is in danger. He sets out to save the world based on the hints given in those letters.
3. How To Survive At The Academy
I ended up transmigrating as a third-rate extra in a game I like, but worst of all this character has already fallen and been disowned. I have no ambitions. I just want to graduate, but the world won’t let me.
In terms of plot, this is a fantastic novel. The main plot is nothing new. It’s like scone at this point; it’s very common, some enjoy it, some don’t, but what sticks out is the author’s brilliantly planned turn of events, exemplifying the butterfly effect.
Our primary protagonist, Ed, who is forced into this gaming world for unexplained reasons, tries to follow the original plot, but every move he takes leads to other unforeseen outcomes in a convincing manner. The universe feels incredibly organic because of those unanticipated happenings, which, despite going against Ed’s expectations, are highly plausible.
What adds the cream and the beautiful strawberry jam to the scone alongside the well-constructed plot is the comedy.
2. Omniscient First-Person’s Viewpoint
I, a mere con artist, was unjustly imprisoned in Tantalus, the Abyssal Prison meant for the most nefarious of criminals, where I met a regressor. But when I used my ability to read her mind, I found out that I was fated to die in a year… and that the world would end 10 years later... GG life spoilers
The protagonist of the novel has mind-reading skills and knows what the other person is thinking. MC’s name isn’t revealed till 100 chaps iirc but his traits are crystal clear so you can picture him clearly. The unique aspect of this novel is you see the dystopian world depicted through MC’s eyes. Thus the title Omniscient First-Person’s Viewpoint.
Omniscient First Person View is a novel that is filled with wisdom. Reviewers claim that the author might actually be a Regressor because this many insights into so many different fields, while he is just an undergrad student, is remarkable. There’s a harem tag but the romance is subtle and it’s a sub-genre at best. As it leans more toward friendship and how they could avert the tragic future. The main Protagonist came in 4th in the MC pole of the year behind the likes of Frey Raon Starlight and Ferzen Von Schweig and his ability to read the mind is the true charm of the novel.
1. The Main Heroines Are Trying To Kill Me
To save the hopeless Dark Fantasy World, I held back my tears and destroyed the world, then killed the Demon King and returned.
Now, I’m trying to save the world using the “System” I gained as the “Regressor’s Privilege”… But the Main Heroines have also awakened their own memories of the previous timeline.
God damn it.
The main character of this novel is Frey Raon Starlight. This protagonist is the direct descendant of the First Hero, a ‘deceased’ (Hardcore gamer) who fell into a game called [Dark Tale Fantasy] in the world MC lives in, 1000 years ago.
The First Hero saved the world according to the flow of the original game he knew about, but [Dark Tale Fantasy] had a sequel. A game where you have to stop the heir of the Demon King after 1000 years later who is trying to annihilate the world. This game was labeled ‘Harder than part 1’, ‘Dog sh*t Game’, and ‘Intentionally designed by the developers to torture the gamers’.
The MC is the protagonist of the sequel and according to the strategy guide left by the First Hero, he will have to follow the hidden route in order to achieve a truly happy ending.
The hidden route is the [Path of False Evil], the prerequisites for entering this route:
1. Forcefully commit evil deeds. 2. Deceive the Heroines and destroy the world. 3. Then double-cross the Demon King to regress to gain the [False Evil System].
But… Because of some unexpected variables, the 5 main heroines have also gained memories of the previous timeline.
