Slice Of Life Manhwa is a category of manga although having interesting scenarios remains underrated. Manhwas are gaining popularity because of their amazing theme, captivating narrative and outstanding artwork.
Slice of life is one the most overlooked genres in manga and anime. It is usually viewed as a boring setting that doesn’t produce much action. This makes it a less popular choice for stories with more drama or action. But not all slice-of life stories can be described this way.
