And speaking of webtoons, this weekend I started reading Witch Workshop, the latest effort from Goong author So-Hee Park. (English-translated chapters are available here.) So far it's not as instantly charming as Goong, but it's worth reading for the magical curse besetting one of the main characters: after an ancient ancestor tortured a witch, the men of the family were doomed to only be attracted to extremely old women. I'm not sure how I feel about that hook from a feminist perspective (one day I hope to be a VERY old, very attractive lady), but the various scenes of Park's teen-dream protagonist blushing furiously as he glances adoringly at the heroine's grandmother are still pretty funny.
