However, finding a suitable manhwa app or platform was such a headache. If you don’t have enough money to pay but still want to read your favorite manhwa, you’ve come to the right place.

After much research and using these sites, I’ve compiled a list of platforms you can use to read your favorite manhwas. However, there might be some ads or annoying pop-ups, but don’t worry, in this blog, you’ll find various alternatives to read manhwas.

So, manhwa lovers, let’s get started.

Top 7 Free Manhwa Reading Sites

If you don’t want to pay for any premium plans to read Manhwa, this blog is for you. This list will save you from all the trouble, and you can enjoy manhwas from True Beauty to The Player That Can’t Level Up, ordinary life asian comics to manhwa series with special powers, and much more. Readers highly love these Korean comics, and every update is highly awaited.

1. Mangadex

If you love reading manga and manhwas, this website is for you. Many popular mangas are on this platform, such as Demon Slayer, Naruto, Jujutsu Kaisen, Fairy Tail, etc.

Mangadex is also popularly known as Wikipedia for manhwas and manga. You can find many Japanese mangas and Korean manhwa here as well. Most of these have English translations so a broader audience can read Korean webtoons.

Moreover, there is detailed information about almost every manhwa and a synopsis. You can choose which manhwa you want to watch and keep track of them.

As a reader, I find this option extremely convenient. And what about the subscriptions?

Well, that’s the best part. There are no annoying advertisements or subscriptions at all. It’s absolutely free and has a vast number of Korean manhwa. The update speed is fast, and they are available in high-quality translation in different languages.

What I Like:

  • It has an active and passionate community of users who contribute translations, scanlations, and discuss manga chapters.
  • Users can customize their reading experience by adjusting image quality and using different reading modes.
  • Offers manga in multiple languages, making it accessible to a diverse global audience.

What I Don’t Like:

  • It relies on donations to cover hosting costs, which can lead to financial instability.
  • There is no official mobile app, which means users had to rely on web browsers for mobile access.

2. Webtoons

Are you looking for a platform where you can read manhwa in English for free?

Then, Webtoon is an ideal option for you. Naver Corporation developed it. Then, later on, in 2004, it was released, and it gained a massive following. The Manhwa fans all over the world love this site. It is one of the largest webtoon company.

The major reason for its popularity is high-quality titles. They range from action to romance, sci-fi, and the list goes on and on. Another stand-out feature of this platform is its unique format. I’m a huge fan of it. Especially when you’re reading manhwas on your smartphone, the vertical chapters are precisely what you need to level up your reading experience. It makes me so immersed in the story.

As a reader, you’ll also find this mode easier and more convenient to read. Are you still doubting this platform’s power?

Then let me tell you that Webtoon won the “Korean Digital Media Award” in 2010. Not only this, in 2013, it won the “Korean Content Award.”

What I Like:

  • Many comics on Webtoon are free to read, allowing users to enjoy a vast library of comics with a variety of genres that you can read without cost.
  • Webtoon provides a platform for aspiring comic creators to publish their work and gain exposure, potentially leading to professional opportunities.
  • Comics and manhwas release episodes regularly, keeping readers engaged and returning for more.

What I Don’t Like:

  • Finding specific comics or genres can be challenging due to the platform’s search and discovery limitations.
  • Webtoon can be addictive, leading users to spend a lot of time reading comics and potentially affecting productivity.

3.Bato.to

Are there manhwas that you can’t find anywhere? You have searched everywhere on the internet but have no luck?

Then try Bato because here you’ll get almost every manhwa. Most of the content on this site is uploaded by fans, and let me tell you, the community is extremely large. So a wide variety of content is available in different quality and quantity.

If you have a favorite manhwa or want an underrated story to get attention, feel free to upload it on this website. This free manga reader website features mangas and manhwas of various genres.

However, the upload threshold is generally low, which can affect the quality of manhwa. So you’ll find both high-quality and low-quality manhwas here.

You can also read real user’s ratings and reviews. This helps me a lot in deciding whether I should spend time reading a manhwa or not.

What I Like:

  • The platform is known for hosting high-quality manga scans, often in multiple languages.
  • A vast collection of manga titles, including many fan-translated works, makes it a one-stop destination for manga enthusiasts.
  • An active and engaged community of manga fans. It provided discussion forums, allowing users to interact and share their thoughts on manga series.

What I Don’t Like:

  • Some manga series are irregularly updated, and users can’t rely on consistent release schedules.
  • Its share of advertisements and pop-ups could be intrusive and affect the user experience.

4.MangaToon

It is a popular platform to read manhwas in English. Because let’s be honest, not everyone is a fluent Korean speaker, and those Google-translated versions of manhwas make no sense.

In 2018, MangaToon was released for manhwa lovers. MangaToon Culture Technology Co., Ltd developed it. The site has various manhwas such as Love Like Cherry Blossoms, Trapped with the CEO, etc.

A fascinating thing I noticed about MangaToon is that it has a very unique business model. As you might know, most reading websites offer free content, but you might have to deal with annoying ads and pop-ups. Meanwhile, MangaToon has a solution for that.

It allows the users to pay using a simple coin-based system. What does that mean?

It means you can watch simple ads and do tasks to get access to premium chapters. Due to this payment model, it has gained the attention of many manhwa readers.

According to an estimate, millions of people visit this site every month. This makes MangaToon a very popular platform for reading manhwas globally.

What I Like:

  • MangaToon features original titles not found anywhere else, providing a unique reading experience.
  • You can access a significant amount of manga on MangaToon for free, which is great for users on a budget.
  • The app is easy to navigate, making it accessible for both seasoned manga readers and newcomers.

What I Don’t Like:

  • Depending on your subscription, there may be restrictions on the number of chapters you can download for offline reading.
  • The quality of translations may vary, and not all manga have high-quality translations.

5. Tachiyomi

Suppose you’re reading different manhwas at a time. They are opened on different websites. So, finding all of them at once can be extremely difficult. What should you do?

Luckily, Tachiyomi has a solution for this problem. It’s a free source for Android users to read their favorite manga or manga.

It allows you to make different manhwa selections from various sources.

What I Like:

  • It offers access to a vast library of manga sources, allowing you to read manga from various websites, including popular ones like MangaDex, MangaHere, and more. From a slice of life to the romance genre, a lot is available for everyone to read.
  • It can track your reading progress and sync it across devices, making it easy to continue where you left off.
  • Since it’s open-source, Tachiyomi doesn’t include ads, providing a clean reading experience.

What I Don’t Like:

  • Since it’s a community-driven project, there’s no official customer support, so getting help with issues can be more challenging.
  • As with any software, Tachiyomi may have occasional bugs or issues, although the community usually works to fix them quickly.

6. Book Walker

You might get confused by the name. Book walker?

But I’m here to find sites to read manhwa for free, not books. Don’t get confused. It’s not an app to read books. It’s a platform where you can find light novels, manhwas, and mangas.

Light novel readers are a huge fan of this platform. However, now you can read light novels along with manga or manhwa in the app.

There are more than 30,000 light novels available as of now, and the number is increasing at a rapid pace. Moreover, Korean manhwas are often based on light novels. If you want to read manhwa or light novels, this is an ideal platform.

What I Like:

  • There is a wide selection of manga and light novels, manhwas, and mangas, including many popular titles, so you’ll likely find what you’re looking for.
  • It’s compatible with various devices and platforms, including Android, iOS, and web browsers.
  • Book Walker often runs promotions and discounts, allowing you to save money on your purchases.

What I Don’t Like:

  • Like many digital platforms, Book Walker uses DRM, limiting how you can use and share your purchased content.
  • Availability of titles may vary by region, and some titles may not be accessible in certain countries.

7. INKR Comics

INKR Comics was created by the people who made the ‘Manga Rock’ app. The website was announced recently in April 2020. The team did these efforts so everyone gets a fair share of their efforts. How do they achieve it?

They share the revenue between content creators and publishers.

You can find various manhwas and comics based on genres such as romance, comedy, Isekai, horror, gore, sci-fi, drama, etc. The best part is their personalized recommendation system. It gives you online content recommendations based on what you’ve already read.

What I Like:

  • Many comics on INKR are known for their high-quality artwork and storytelling, making it a visually appealing platform for comic enthusiasts.
  • It offers offline reading options, allowing users to download comics for reading without an internet connection.
  • The platform has a user-friendly mobile app, making it convenient for readers to access their favorite comics on the go.

What I Don’t Like:

  • Primarily operates through its app, so users who prefer reading comics on a web browser may find this limitation inconvenient.
  • Some comics on INKR may rotate in and out of availability, which means that a particular series you’re following could become temporarily unavailable.

Conclusion

I hope you’ll find this list of free manhwa websites to read extremely useful. However, I highly recommend visiting official sites and platforms to support the authors.

Because a lot of hard work and effort goes into creating a manhwa for readers, everything takes a lot of time, from story to drawing.

Finally, do you have any sites I should add to this list?
