Big Life (빅 라이프) Manhwa Review


A review of the Big Life manhwa which is about an unpopular author, Ha Jaegun, who is not able to write as well as he had initially hoped. The manhwa focuses around a mysterious box which Ha Jaegun comes across while on his way home one evening, what happens next after finding this box changes his life.

While this is not the typical manhwa that I would pick up and read… it caught my attention. I am glad I gave it a chance and I await eagerly for future chapters.

This manhwa is available in both RAW and English versions, the RAW can be found on the official Kakao website and the English translated version can be found on scanlation sites such as MangaDex or MangaNelo.

A Small Synopsis

An author, Ha Jaegun, strives to become an amazing author but he lacks the special something that is required to achieve this. After meeting with his friends and being compared to a prior classmate during his walk home he finds a mysterious box. From there on his life changes and things only seem to be getting better for him.


What Is Good About Big Life (빅 라이프)

I found that the storyline was pretty good and it was a nice change-up from the regular stuff based around monsters, gods and fighting. I liked just how genuine this manhwa came across and it was refreshing.

The entire thing was easy to follow and the layout was excellent and meant that it didn’t have tonnes of things happening all at once where you may lose focus.

I really feel this art style is nice and it kind of reminds me of the HIVE manhwa. It’s visually appealing on the eyes and makes it easy to follow.

What Is Bad About Big Life (빅 라이프)

The biggest downfall of this manhwa I feel… has to be the delay in English chapter releases. But this is to be expected as (to my knowledge) there is no official English translation. All of it is done by the fans.

Overall Conclusion

I feel that once there are faster chapter translations either through official channels or through fans, this manhwa will blow up for its kind of style.

Overall, I would recommend adding this to your list if you’re after a nice comedy and drama kind of manhwa.
