This is different from all the other drama webtoons in this list as it takes more towards comedy.

He enters the shark’s dungeon and is held captive. Their prophecy tells them to kill kappa so that they can escape the curse, which causes numerous causalities. When the shark prince, Siren (Yep! I found the name ironic) who is supposed to kill Kappa, sees him, he gets entranced by his beauty. He must look for other ways to save kappa. With conspiracy going on from other clans and soft blushes throughout, it is a beautiful plot.

Dealing with mysteries and secrets scattered throughout the plot, this fantasy–drama webtoon is sweet and plot-driven. The chapter length can be considered a bit short, but it is quite exceptional in the long run. The art is excellent, and the character development is great. Lumine is a werewolf who is extremely rare, and only weredogs exist in common. Though he is tiny and no one takes much notice of how he does things. Both werewolves and weredogs exist in human forms with ears and tail sticking out. However, they can transform into their primitive form whenever they desire.

Kody is a witch whose dad, Aiden takes in Lumine knowing full well who he is. Kody being an outcast at school is a child with a temper and good all cold savage glares.

The characters have various layers, which makes them touching and interesting. Throughout the webtoon, you have this anticipation as to what will be the ending. The art style is simple, but all the more conveys everything as it should be.

Gamin, a middle school kid, is who starts with his perspective as a window for us to understand the story. We get to know about the small back story regarding him and Izzy.

A strong female lead, a dumb emperor, a bitch, and a hot and charming male lead (Heinley). Moreover, visuals are quite appealing with the magic and historical touch, intriguing plot and the characters are well-built. But the plot pacing is slow to the point where I eagerly want to slit the throat of the emperor and trashta. 

30. I Will be Waiting For You In 1999

Another beautiful work of the author of “Here U Are”.

It’s a coming-of-age story of two orphans, Mingqi and Shi Yi who wanted to support each other and eventually got attached. It’s about them growing up together and surviving the harsh world along with their other orphan friend, Bai Ming.

Some heavy themes were attempted to be portrayed. Captivating and calming art. It’s a heartwarming yet heart-wrenching drama webtoon.

26. A Good Day to Be a Dog

Status: Ongoing

A Good Day to Be a Dog is amongst the sweetest webtoons I have come across. The pacing in the starting chapter is slightly slow and might feel boring though it gets hugely better. Hana is a teacher, and things swirl down as one party night she ends up kissing another teacher in place of her crush. It’s not the end of drama present. Hana’s family has a curse, which leads them to turn into a dog every night after they kiss. The only way to break it is by kissing the same guy again in dog form.

Jin, the male teacher who Hana ends up kissing, is an introvert and is aware of Hana’s feelings for their colleague Bogum.

Top-notch and clean art with beautiful character design. Cute chemistry of characters with different personalities along with some character development that evolves at their own pace. Also, it is a slow burn romance topped with humor and fluffiness. Wasn’t cliche and no unnecessary drama.

It deals with real life and real issues and struggles including family, love, LGBTQ+, acceptance, rejection, trauma, etc. So, let’s get invested deep into this refreshing webtoon.

10. Save Me

Status: Completed

Warning: Triggering and disturbing scenes depicting bullying at extreme levels, physical abuse, and violence displayed in the webtoon

Na Hyeongo is a disabled student who is also an outcast and struggles as the main target of the bullies. He’s constantly harassed by the students and even by the teachers every day. No one seems to be willing to help him until Cha Namsoo, a new transferable student comes to stand by his side.

One of my most favorite psychological dark drama revenge webtoons is here. The detailed art style is a feast to eyes with complex characters and a slow-paced realistic plot which builds up the suspense until the end. Just be patient because it’s a well-structured story dipped in the thriller, many hidden details, and the character growth is one to watch.

09. Midnight Poppy Land

Status: Ongoing

Cheated on and a heartbroken Poppy is a small-town young book editor assistant. Our handsome well built Tora is a mafia bodyguard. What happens when due to some reason, their paths cross and their lives get entangled together? Dragged into the world of the underworld and mafia conflict, where will this relationship take them?

Let’s explore the relationship between Poppy, the cutie, and Tora, the well built handsome guy with long black hair, amber eyes, with tattoos on his body (I totally fell for him). A well-written and gripping plot, breathtaking and beautiful art and character design integrated with cuteness and insanely hot ML.

Look forward to more mystery, drama, romance, and plot development unveiled in season 2.

08. Bastard

Status: Completed

Warning: Dark and disturbing themes included, such as murder, child abuse, etc with gruesome scenes

Jin Seon is an outcast. Jin’s father, a CEO of a company, is a kind and compassionate person, thus a samaritan. But that is just a facade and his real self is someone darker and someone completely unexpected one can think of. A double life led by a father and son, what does the future hold for them?

One of the darkest psychological thriller drama webtoons I ever read. Dark and depressing art, darker plot, and darkest plot twists. Beautifully drawn expressions with brilliant character development and an immersive and unpredictable fast-paced plot. 

Thus, it is commendable work. Let the creepiness begin, enough to keep you at the edge of your seats.

07. I Love Yoo

Status: Ongoing

I did just put it here that this is one of my favorites and not be obsessing over it further. Regarding, I Love Yoo; it is a high school story that focuses on romance and drama genre. Both the genres align properly, leaving space for detailing, character arcs, and theories.

The webtoon is about Shin Yoo, a high school girl, fierce and so not your typical girl and her life. After a small accidental bash with a group of boys, her life pretty much turns around with a lot coming her way. The description might seem cheesy, but the webtoon sure is not. The author gives extreme importance to the plot to make all ends connect. The art style is also exquisite and is slightly different than the usual manhwa-manhua art style.

06. It’s Mine

Status: Ongoing

He Stalc

He Attacc

But most importantly

He cute as Hecc. Presenting you with the cutest stalker.

Yohan Do wants to get closer to Dajeong Lee to protect her. Why and from whom does he want to protect her? And why is he ready to go to great lengths to protect her? Get ready to get hooked up with a unique suspense and mystery concept.

 A compelling plot, well-developed characters with different personalities along with their backstories, and pretty art. This story isn’t just your usual yandere stalker. It holds much more surprise than you anticipated. So, don’t drop this drama webtoon just after reading some chapters. Because the story gets darker as you proceed.

(Ps. Yohan is the cutest. Period.)

My Deepest Secret - Best Drama Webtoons

05. My Deepest Secret

Status: Ongoing

This is a psychological drama story. The plot is still not very clear because the series is new on Webtoon. The depth of the plot is apparent, and one can quickly note the tone it is set in. At the same time, I like that the first three episodes are enough for someone to realize what the story has to offer. The art style is clean and crisp.

The webtoon is about Emma, a high school student, her boyfriend, Elios, and her batchmate, Yohan. The three of them have quite different personalities, but in a broader sense, all are somewhere having secrets. Emma works part-time at a coffee shop, and that’s the place where she meets Elios, the perfect boyfriend. Though there is a lot behind this ideal setup and Yohan is the best part to fuel the drama.

04. An Unexpected Truth

Status: Completed

Warning: Mature themes such as mental health, psychological issues, trauma, abuse, obsessions, etc are depicted in the webtoon

A male high school student is convicted of stabbing 8 civilians. He’s Nam Yoseob, a topper and a quiet guy who’s always wearing a mysterious smile. But who would have imagined that such a calm and composed guy can commit such a gruesome act? What could have been the reason for such an act? The story involves Yoseob and his elder brother, Nam Jaeha.

Pleasing art style with an addicting and well-developed plot is brewed with tragedy and darkness. Also, it has complex characters with different perspectives and fascinating character development to watch. Thus, I would say it is a definitive binge-reading one.

03. Annarasumanara

Status: Completed

*Warning: The story is gonna make you cry* You Have Been Warned.

Here comes one of my favorite drama webtoon of all times: Annarasumanara, a Korean word which is similiar to the word “Abracadabra”.

Yun Ai, a high school student struggles to make ends meet as the sole breadwinner of the family and feed her sister. Who knew that meeting a mysterious magician in an abandoned amusement park will become a life-changing moment. A true masterpiece yet underrated one.

It’s a coming-of-age story with an intriguing and thought-provoking storyline. It beautifully portrays different stages of life, harsh realities, Emotions, and societal expectations from us. This drama webtoon has the strong power to change someone’s views towards their life. Simple colors portraying a complex plot, that’s what Annarasumanara is.

This beautifully drawn webtoon illustrated deep messages, valuable life lessons, and struggles with surrealism quality. Also, it has metaphors and heavy visual symbolism in it.

It’ll soon be adapted as a web drama. It’s a mystical magical drama webtoon. So, brace yourself up to experience the rollercoaster of emotions. 

 So, do you believe in magic? 

cheese in the trap - best romance webtoon

02. Cheese in The Trap

Status: Ongoing

The drama in this webtoon sure is one of the best, and a k-drama in its name gives it all the recognition. The relationship Seol, our main protagonist with everyone, and Jung are brilliant. The story mainly revolves around Seol, Jung, and Inho. A group high school students, their past, truth, and emotions. Throughout the webtoon, the unique art style helps you in grasping the minor details and reactions. It is undoubtedly one of the significant features that make this webtoon so much better than the others.

The plotline sips on the drama at every point. In every moment, you know another plot twist or part is awaiting you. The best part is that it never gets boring or predictable at any point. The official translation on the Webtoon app is still ongoing, so we are still not sure about the ending the character growth and arcs till now are great. Indeed a must title in the list for drama webtoons.
