It’s been over 10 years now since this series has been first released in South Korea and after a decade later it’s still one of the best manhwa series that I’ve read and still going strong in South Korea. When I first started reading King of Hell I never expected this series to last as long as it has. The series introduces our protagonist going by the name of Majeh in sort is kind of like a soul reaper that collects souls and brings them over to the next world for the King of Hell. When some evil spirits started escaping to the living world, the King of Hell had Majeh’s spirit returned to his body (Which is still perfectly preserved in the living world) and ordered Majeh to hunt down and capture these demons. In the beginning I had mixed feelings about how this series will turn out since the storyline from the very start wasn’t as appealing and not well driven which might cause some readers to stop reading past the first volume. What really brought me back into reading this series was the superb detailed artwork that Kim, Jae-Hwan put into this manhwa. The style of art he uses is some of the best I’ve seen out of most manga and manhwa that I’ve read. Over time I’ve not only noticed that the artwork was getting better by the volume but the storyline and character development had been drastically improved. Currently in South Korea there’s about 350 chapters released which is published bi-weekly in Comic Champ magazine every 1st and 15th of every month. There’s 42 volumes released so far with volume 43 planned to be released in the coming month. From the looks where the story is right now it looks like this series can go on another 10 to 20 volumes and I’ll be reading this series right to the very end. Overall this manhwa provides lots of action, fight scenes, and some humor and would recommend it if you're a big fan of Bleach.
